Sorry Darren, Al and I have discussed this too, but I don't buy it. I've seen various degrees of the B showing or not showing. There aren't 4 distinct versions, but numerous ones, each with subtle differences. I don't consider those variations, and I don't plan to seek them all out. I am convinced there are 2 versions of the checklist, as are Beckett, SGC and PSA.

You're certainly free to feel however you want, and sure, there are tiny differences between the cropping of the photos with regard to how much of the 'B' appears. I definitely agree with that. But they all undeniably fall into one of two distinct categories: the 'B' is either severely cropped off (and the bat appears in the lower right) or it isn't severely cropped off and it appears to be a full 'B' (and the bat is non-existent, or in some cases, just a microscopic sliver appears). There is also the telltale feature of a larger light colored area to the left of his hat in the full 'B' version. Taken together with the differing back verbiage, I have no problem cataloguing 4 different versions of this card on my variations list.

Today was a monster mail day for me. I was approached last week by a guy who wanted to trade for some of my Yaz items. I've never traded items out of my master registry, but he has deep pockets and was able to blow me away. I traded away 3 items and got 7. Every item I got was one I either never thought I would find or was in a grade I couldn't have otherwise afforded. And to top things off, I've already purchased raw replacements of 2 of the items I traded away. Without further ado, here are the new additions, in chronological order:

http://i1199.photobucket.com/albums/...ooka%20Yaz.jpg

Check out the cutting job on this one. Beautiful!

http://i1199.photobucket.com/albums/...20Up%20Yaz.jpg

Very happy to finally own a nice copy of this.

http://i1199.photobucket.com/albums/...az%20front.jpghttp://i1199.photobucket.com/albums/...Yaz%20back.jpg

This transfer is pop 6, with only 3 higher.

http://i1199.photobucket.com/albums/...og%20Yaz_1.jpg

The Transogram might be my favorite from this haul. They are so tough to find and always pricey. The cutting of this one makes it an automatic "authentic," but I've seen a lot worse. This card looks great to me. Pop 4, only 3 higher.

http://i1199.photobucket.com/albums/...20Yaz%2010.jpg

Value-wise, this 76 is the crown jewel among today's arrivals. A big upgrade over my PSA 8.

http://i1199.photobucket.com/albums/...anel%20Yaz.jpg

This is my first Hostess panel and it has tremendous star power. The wavy cut hurts the eye appeal here and I'm debating whether I have the balls to crack it out, try to trim it, and resub.

http://i1199.photobucket.com/albums/...GOLD%20Yaz.jpg

I've had other Yaz collectors tell me it's surprisingly difficult to find this gold variation of the 82 Perma Graphics. The scratch is on the slab, not the card. Pop 5.

Thanks for looking, everybody. If you couldn't tell, I'm over the moon with these new additions!!

David W 01-10-2017 06:56 AM

Thanks for showing the Yaz collection.

You have some real cool stuff.

Thanks! I had hoped more people would post more stuff when I started this thread, but it looks like I do the bulk of the posting.

irv 01-10-2017 08:13 PM

Very nice, Dan.

Congrats! :)

quitcrab 01-22-2017 03:56 AM

So you did well. Sounds like your happy with the trade. You got 2 of the 3 back already... Which card are you looking for? I can keep an eye open for you.
Good luck and your Yaz collection is really nice.
Scott

DBesse27 01-22-2017 11:20 PM

Thanks Scott! I'm looking to replace this:

quitcrab 01-23-2017 08:16 AM

Don't have that but I will keep an eye open for you... You will find one it just might take some time. Scott

DBesse27 01-25-2017 10:49 PM

A few recent Yaz pickups (and a few more on the way).

http://i1199.photobucket.com/albums/...az%20front.jpghttp://i1199.photobucket.com/albums/...Yaz%20back.jpg

The disc is a 1978 Saga Disc. I also bought some Red Sox pocket schedules with Yaz on them. Two 1979 WITS radio and one 1980 TV 38. I already had one copy of each, but these were different back variations:

http://i1199.photobucket.com/albums/...ds%20front.jpg
http://i1199.photobucket.com/albums/...eds%20back.jpg

My favorite one is Terrible Ted. Dude was such a fanatical collector of pocket schedules that he took out an ad on a pocket schedule, presumably looking for more pocket schedules.

Shoebox 01-29-2017 11:03 PM

I came across this Yaz item the other day and really liked the image. It didn't have any bids so I decided to take it for the minimum. The AH description alleged it as a rare issue, but this outfit throws that term around pretty liberally. I didn't see it among the items posted in this thread though so is it somewhat uncommon?

http://i1269.photobucket.com/albums/...stiknv3ri.jpeg

DBesse27 01-30-2017 07:54 AM

All the 60s and 70s Red Sox team issues are pretty scarce. I've never seen that one before.

Beckett lists a black & white set from 1971, not a color one. Unfortunatrly, it looks like PSA labeled them the same and lumped them together in the pop report. Here is my b&w from the same year:

http://i1199.photobucket.com/albums/...0Yaz%20PSA.jpg

Shoebox 01-30-2017 09:56 AM

Thanks for the info Dan.

Glad I could contribute something you haven't seen before to the thread. Certainly unfortunate that PSA didn't differentiate between the two issues.

DBesse27 01-30-2017 10:06 AM

To give you an idea of scarcity, PSA says they've only graded 13 "1971 team issue" yaz cards, which include all b&w like mine and color like yours. I've seen at least 4 of them and they were all like mine. Very few of the 13 are you card. In fact yours might be the only one. So yes, it's scarce. Would you mind PMing me what you paid for it at auction? That would help me in the future.

Edit: after more research, I believe your card is mislabeled. With that being said, the Beckett Almanac was no help in determining what it is, nor was the PSA Yaz registry. I have emailed PSA, because I'm curious of what your card actually is. I'll let you know what they say.

Shoebox 01-30-2017 12:51 PM

Sent you a pm with the link. Appreciate your research and knowledge.

DBesse27 01-30-2017 07:36 PM

You're welcome.

A guy I know is breaking his Yaz set. I was able to pick up 5 of his cards and these were the first 2 to arrive:

http://i1199.photobucket.com/albums/...rs%20panel.jpg
http://i1199.photobucket.com/albums/...es%20front.jpghttp://i1199.photobucket.com/albums/...les%20back.jpg

The Atlantic Oil card is my favorite of the 2. Extremely condition sensitive, from a contest.

DBesse27 02-02-2017 10:51 PM

OK, if low grade rarities don't strike your fancy, how about some high grade goodness?

http://i1199.photobucket.com/albums/...SA%20front.jpghttp://i1199.photobucket.com/albums/...PSA%20back.jpg

For those who might not know, the Red Barn disc is arguably the most difficult MSA disc; it's definitely in the discussion at least. Mine is only the 8th copy of Yaz graded by PSA. Note the Kenosha address on back. There's an even scarcer variation with no address.

jfkheat 02-02-2017 11:00 PM

Dan,

Here is my high grade addition to this thread. I believe you have seen this one but other guys here probably haven't.

Yaz Photo
 
1 Attachment(s)
I have lots of Carl Yastrzemski cards, but my favorite item is this small, blurry photo I took of my TV in 1983. It was "Yaz Day" (10/1/83), and at 8 years old, I was devastated that he was retiring! So I took this photo, and I have kept it for the last 33 years. Thought it might be cool to try and have him sign it sometime...

**Edited 3/6/17 - I originally posted that this was his last game. After "Yaz Day", he actually played one last game on 10/2/83.

Now that's pretty damn cool.

DBesse27 03-12-2017 09:41 PM

I made a big trade with another Yaz collector. The key for him was getting my 71 team issue PSA 9 and sending me his PSA 6. The key for me was landing this next card. I've wanted to own it for a long time and never thought I'd ever own a copy in this high of a grade.

http://i1199.photobucket.com/albums/...or%20Mayor.jpg

Here were the other really key cards I landed:

http://i1199.photobucket.com/albums/...az%20front.jpghttp://i1199.photobucket.com/albums/...Yaz%20back.jpg
http://i1199.photobucket.com/albums/...att%20Ldrs.jpg
http://i1199.photobucket.com/albums/...az%20front.jpghttp://i1199.photobucket.com/albums/...Yaz%20back.jpg

The 68 Venz helps both my Yaz and Venz registries. I usually don't show back damage on my Venezuelans, but I thought this one was kind of cool. Some of you know that most of these cards were glued into albums. Here you can see remnants of that album and still make out some of the Spanish words.

Here are some other really good cards I got in the trade:

http://i1199.photobucket.com/albums/...Yaz%20PSA6.jpg
http://i1199.photobucket.com/albums/...rs%20front.jpg
http://i1199.photobucket.com/albums/...az%20front.jpghttp://i1199.photobucket.com/albums/...Yaz%20back.jpg

I like that the Burger Chef disc isn't oversized like most of the MSA discs.

Some OK cards:

http://i1199.photobucket.com/albums/...am%20front.jpg
http://i1199.photobucket.com/albums/...Sox%20team.jpg
http://i1199.photobucket.com/albums/...tess%20Yaz.jpghttp://i1199.photobucket.com/albums/...loth%20Yaz.jpg
http://i1199.photobucket.com/albums/...0OPC%20Yaz.jpg

And finally these last cards are just set fillers, all of which I plan to upgrade eventually:

Great cards and premiums posted so far! Here are a few Yaz items that I do not think have been posted yet (along with others that might have been as I did not check the thread as thoroughly as I probably should have).

DBesse27 03-13-2017 03:41 PM

Thanks Alan, those are awesome! I only have 3 of them. I have an Atlantic Oil Tony C, but not the Yaz. Can you identify the first one? I've seen them on eBay but none of the books have helped me figure out who issued the postcards and when.

aelefson 03-13-2017 03:48 PM

The first one is actually blank backed and I have never been able to figure out its origins. I believe I posted about it on here years ago and I also have a brief memory of corresponding with either Dave Hornish or Bob Lemke regarding another example (if so it would be on their respective blogs). Regarding any you do not own, please email me at aelefson@hotmail.com and we can discuss things.
