    Sweet card....I didn't realize Greenberg was that tall! What card is that by the way?
    Thanks Scotty, I've been trying to figure it out as well. It's from 1979 TCMA, and is a checklist of cards 1-49. Hank was very tall for his time, listed at 6'4" he faced a lot of teasing about his build in high school.

    Incredibly rare 1964 Topps Rookie All Star Banquet card featuring Hank. This card is part of a 35 card set that was used as the program for that night's event, which was only distributed to those who attended, so you can imagine really how scarce these are.

    This may be the second or third I've ever seen, and one of only 6 graded by PSA, none graded by SGC (yet )

    Just got this in the mail. My first card from 2016 National Treasures. Some of the prices for his stuff have been nutty, but glad to land this one!

    Awesome as always man! And I feel you on NT-it's been wild this year, more so than previous years for some reason!

    Thanks,

    My theory is that it's not being broken as much as previous years. Panini put out a weaker checklist this year, so less group breaks. Then, when people hit a card, they are almost forced to list at a high price to recoup the cost of their spot in the break. It's an endless cycle, really.

    Thanks for the kind words about the card!

    Yeah I would say that's probably accurate-along with coming out the same time as Pantheon and Prime Cuts-why they put out 3 similar products around the same time is beyond me. And as you said the checklist was weaker-Doerr only had 3 cards, with 2 1/1s-I skipped the Group breaks because of it, especially after I saw the Bat Barrel appear before New Years. Along that note, barely saw any group breaks for Pantheon and Prime Cuts, much less than NT, and Doerr has a strong checklist in those products. Very weird this year.

    Thanks,
    Jeff

    A few days ago I landed an incredibly rare card from 2004 Fleer EX. This card with Hack Wilson and Hank is /22. Within this same set there is a Babe Ruth/Jimmie Foxx/Hank Greenberg triple bat /13. I've only seen maybe 2 of those, one within the past 2-3 years.

    Thanks for the view guys.
