    1941 Play Ball Joe DiMaggio story

    My buddy calls me because he knows I'm a card collector. He tells me his coworker found some old cards when she was cleaning out her dad's place (I'm like yea yea we've all heard this one). He brings me the cards... she has about 10 cards from the 1940 Play Ball set and about 20 cards from the 1941 Play Ball set. The '40s were in very bad condition. The '41s were not in that good of condition either except for one card... which looked pretty good compared to all the rest (pretty lucky that it was this one below)!!!

    Agree, that almost never happens! What's she going to do with them?

    She is going to keep them all except this one. I told her that if she wanted I'd sell it for her. So, I plan on sending it to PSA and go from there!

    Nice, it's funny, just today I was reading the Card Board Connection top 10 Joe D card story. Was looking for info on his Four in One w Gherig and read about this Play ball. Although not his RC, it's the 1st color card, so it's pretty cool. What you thinking on grade 4/5?

    I would grade it and make an offer if I were you. Sell some stuff to get such an iconic card!

    You could own about 100 of these bad boys for the same price of a Trout super auto
    Look, I'm gonna be honest with you. I really need a job. And I will take any position, as long as it doesn't involve having sex with old ladies for money or bear traps. Those are my two bugaboos. While mulling over my resume feel free to check out my baseball card collection, it's small and simple, kinda like me - >>>>> http://s822.photobucket.com/user/JDf...ds%20n%20stuff

    I'm guessing that's one of the nicer looking 4's out there. Nice color on the white border and nice corners. Cool card for sure!
