    Nobuddy recognizes the man in the lower left, huh??
  2. The thing is, do we really know if all cards got...

    The thing is, do we really know if all cards got sample versions and if so, did they also include all with a gold version. You'd like to think so, but I guess only Beckett knows.

    There are those iconic cards and then there are those that you just forget. I had to check to see if this was an alternate pose. After seeing that this was his issued card that year, I am...

    Magazines usually have (or had, thinking an older mag where I saw it) a section in them that discusses print runs. I don't think that is the end all number of copies printed, but it might be. ...
  5. Recognizing players as they age or even just out of uniform

    Some people are just so distinct or have been photographed to the extreme. Just about everyone who is vaguely knowledgable with baseball can probably pick out an old aged Babe Ruth or Ty Cobb from a...

    I believe 10 was the full set for True Value. Garvey is inside the Guerrero pack.

    I was not aware at the timeI got mine that the ad backs for the True Value cards existed. I didn't notice things like that at the time. Of course, I would needed to have at least two of some cards...

    Can you tell if it is actually ink applied after the card was made? It looks like some stray magenta printing ink to me. In fact, there is a small group of people who chase these types of things...

    I had a guy try that on me, big surprise right, but I sell pretty infrequently. The magazine was described perfectly with plenty of photos. I always put in a line about asking me if there are any...

    For a historical perspective, it will be nice if Jackson gets in. Obviously, he is long dead although he may have family that would celebrate the lifting of the ban.

    It is sad to think Rose could...

    No silver even for Wakefield? I have seen a few Garvey silver samples from that same set, but never a gold. They were supposed to be 10% of the silver run, but I want to believe at this point that...

    I watched the relisted auction and it ended tonight. I have to admit I received a small amount of personal satisfaction seeing that the item sold for open bid price, $2.50 less than what I had won...

    Maybe Choo was used to signing in ink and just got going and realized sharpie was required? Might be an oddity someone desires even? Now that he is deceased, it may make it more desirable. I...

  17. Serial Numbered Cards of Significance (4/25)

    Some of us collect them, many don't seem to care. Some sellers make a huge deal to advertise a uniform number in hopes of a nice premium to add to their bottom line, where others either don't know...

    It looked like the batter went to hit the catcher, then changed his mind and held back, then tried again softly. Then that nasty retaliatory mitt toss!
