New FB Acquisitions
 
I don't see any recent threads, so let's get one going!

I picked up this nice Redskins [can I still say that or is it now the "R" word?] cover of HOFer Bill Dudley.

Haven't posted anything on NET54 in a while and this is my first time on the football side. Just started collecting vintage football a few months back. Here are some of my better pickups:

exhibitman - Get Redskins cards while you can, now. Ebay has a tendency to overreact in cases like this. I can fully see them banning anything with the word "Redskins" in the title or description. They've done it before with collectible Nazi Germany items, as well as banning items with the word "Cuba" in it because of the embargo, which included things like 100 year old stamps, coins and postcards.
Just think of all the cards and memorabilia that might be banned because of this.

BTW, nice REDSKINS cover. I have a Sammy Baugh from that same set.

NewEnglandbb.. - Love the 57's! In my opinion vintage football represents some of the best bargains around.

Picked this up yesterday, the last card I needed to finish my '64 Topps set!

Cut in half sure, but it's a genuine John Unitas rookie!

Larry, congrats on completing your 64 set. I'm only a little over 60% complete on mine.

About the '57 "half" card.
Funny (or sad) story: A few years back, at a local mall card show, I came across a dealer who had a pretty big stack of 1957 Topps cards that were cut in half, like your Unitas, sitting in his showcase. He wasn't a regular football guy and had no clue what they were. He really thought they were small sized football cards, until I showed him some of the same 57's, that I had bought at another table, that were not cut in half. I wasn't trying to be mean or nothing, I even waited until no other customers were lingering around to tell him. When he realized it you could tell he really had no clue, and I'll bet he paid some pretty decent money for them. You could just tell, he looked so disappointed.

I've been out of town, and had the chance to visit a card shop while on vacation. Nice to have several hours to dig through a shop with plenty of vintage! Last pickup was sitting there in the showcase 1955 Topps AA Whizzer White error with the Gaynell Tinsley bio. Only two cards remain and I will complete this set. DYN that after his football career Whizzer served as a Supreme Court Justice for 31 years? Whizzer died in 2002 in Denver, and this is where I picked up the card, Denver!

Sure did. Back when I was in law school a friend of mine at a different school was invited to a dinner where White was speaking to students. I sent him my 55AA to get signed. He not only didn't have the nerve to ask White, he then lost the card. :eek:

Adam all my "Whizzer" knowledge was gleaned today via Wikipedia:) Oh, and sorry your friend lost your card!
