    Very excited! #1 vintage PC want acquired today.

    The most expensive and rare vintage Zimmer I needed for my collection showed up on eBay this morning, and I soon worked a private deal to buy it immediately. There has been a PSA8 listed on eBay for a ridiculous $2,500 taunting me. So I was happy to pick up this PSA7 for under $200.



    In case you don't know what you're looking at, this is a 1958 Bell Brands Dodgers card that was distributed regionally in California inside Bell Brand Potato Chip bags. 1958 was the first year for Bell Brands, as they were created in honor of the Dodgers moving from Brooklyn to Los Angeles. Since they are a bit oversized (3"x4") and were distributed in chip bags, finding them in any condition is tough, let alone NM. This purchase really made my day and is going to look great on www.collectingzim.com.

    Oh, had another cool Zim pickup this week too. This is a 2003 Topps Fan Favorites Buyback Auto of a 61 Topps.

    Congrats on getting #1! Great card. I'm a big fan of food issues from the 50's and 60's.

    Yes, I revived a very old thread. He probably moved the pic or deleted it from what it was linked from.

    I was just checking out the ZIM site. Do you have a list of the other players on that St. Paul baseball? That looks like it might be a gold mine of future Dodger player signatures. Looks like maybe Bert Hamric on the same panel as Zimmer. He is extremely tough. I was wondering if this ball happens to have Robert "Bob" Wilson on it? I have not yet researched to see if he played on that team, but he was coming up through the Dodgers organization in the mid 50s. I still need to track down his signature.

    Going a little off-topic. Is MarkGrace.com on renovation or gone forever?
