    That's awesome! So by your research of that Satchel jersey back in '04...since you believe those other sets have used pieces from that same jersey, have you been able to follow the print runs to get an idea of how many pieces have come from 1 jersey? With the type of research you have done on a player who doesn't have jersey pieces in very many products, it might actually be possible to get a fairly close estimate here.

    Thanks Ryan! The research is part of the fun, and even better if/when the card companies help out.

    Not sure if I'm crazy about the inclusion of Darvish but an amazing card.
    Thanks Michael! I do wish the Darvish was a retired veteran for the HOF/Retired Vet/Modern Day trio, but it will be fun seeing how Darvish does through the rest of his career. I know he is not a HOF shoo in, but he may have what it takes if he stays healthy.

    Thanks and I bet you can see the numbering now

    Thanks so much! The research can be slightly challenging but both fun and rewarding.

Very well done Alex as I do the same thing on my patch purchases and most of the time I can pinpoint what jersey it is or more than likely be from. Great job and I hope people read this and take note on how you do research. If your not sure just ask around at some of the patch collectors, myself included, will try and help out on identifying if a patch is legit or not. Awsome awsome card man!


    Yes it's a little work but the life of a patch collector, lol.
    Perfectly said Tony! I have learned so much from a few of you, and others should definitely take note to ask around if there is any "unsureness" prior to spending on material pieces. Have you come across any Satchel Paige logo patches before? This was the first I have seen.

    Awesome pick up!
    Thanks JB! Do you have any Paige patches? I think I remember it listed last year as Jeff said below but it came and went so quick. The only other one I have seen is this one below, but I haven't seen it listed. Looks like the mouth from the Indians logo and the outer border of the Mariners patch for Felix. Neat to see the hat hole piece on this as well:

    Thanks Jeff, and I'm glad you didn't pick it up now haha! Any new a or b holes for you lately?

    Thank you! That is a great idea to check out the print runs and checklist. I'll try to do so this week. I love the Cobb jumbo in your sig! Pack pulled/rafted if I remember correctly?

    Sweet Satchel Paige patch! I remember that card, or one of the other 5, being sold last year at open auction on Ebay. I wish I could remember what it sold for, but I know the Paige patch was amazing like this one.
