    Nice Pickups James!

    But Hmmm...so didn't know the Clark's Locksmiths set had a variation with the no border....interesting. Will have to look at mine to see which one I have!

    Thanks,

    Hey Jeff,
    I was hoping you'd see this. Apparently there were two versions issued, the second printing corrected the address on the back, with the 324 A and added the wavy lines. The second version is a bit bigger as well.
    Kinda interesting.....

    Interesting-will have to look at my sometime this week to see, but I'm pretty sure it's the wavy border version. From what I've seen over the years, my guess is that the 2nd printing is significantly more rare than the first version.

    Always love the older oddball sets..

    Thanks,
    Jeff

    Posted in the Vintage Thread but a big pickup so its deserves mention here as well...

    So here's my latest Doerr pickup...

    1939 Playball Sample

    These were used by salesman back in the day the same way they are today-bringing them into general stores to try to convince the owners to stock the upcoming Playball cards in 1938/1939.





    These are rare-this is only the second or third Doerr I have seen, and the first PSA one I have ever seen. According to PSA's website, this copy is one of only two ever graded and the other one did grade higher but condition with these are horrible (the ungraded one I own is horrifically Off-Center)



    While 1941 Playball is far and away my favorite set, these 1939 Playball Samples are up there for their uniqueness.

    Thanks,
    Jeff

    Wow, that's an early sample card. Nice and obscure pickup. PSA 3 ain't bad for a 78 year old card that was intended to be handled.
