Undervalued & Underappreciated Hockey & Hoops Cards
 
1 Attachment(s)
Here's a nice 1948-49 Exhibits Card of George Mikan. A real undervalued card in my opinion when compared to his Bowman RC. Maybe some of the recent hobby love for Exhibit cards will rub off on this one? Post some other cards (Basketball or Hockey) you feel are undervalued or underappreciated.

1979 JD McCarthy Wayne Gretzky PC. When a Topps or OPC sells for thousands of dollars and is readily available by the dozens in beautiful shape, this RC seems like a great deal:

Echoes the under-appreciation of 1960s McCarthy issues from Detroit and Chicago teams:

1940s-1950s Canadian 'Exhibit' Cards. These were issued in Canada for vending machines in the late 40s/early 50s, have very early and very scarce cards of major HOFers, many of them years before comparable Topps or Parkhurst cards, yet they are very modestly priced by comparison:

Then there are team issues. Talk about under-appreciated cards.

Looking at the pics above, and although I am biased, I would say the Beehive hockey cards are undervalued and underappreciated.

These have been around since the 30's so it is surprising they are not sought after more.

Most definitely underappreciated. Probably because of the size. Curious to know if these were sold in the U.S?
Anyway I've started my signed BeeHive collection with Glenn Hall. Every journey begins with the first step.

Size is definitely a factor, imo, Neil, and as far as I know, although most seem to be in Canada, these were also available to Americans.

Most listings on E-Bay are from CDN provinces, but I have seen American listings as well.

Nice P/U with your Glen Hall.

Mine are currently for sale/trade if you are interested? I have 245 of them in sheets and in binders.

Hmmmm. I've got some stuff you might be interested in for trades.

My email neilfrancis1955@gmail.com.

Some interesting autographs you might like. We can barter via email if you'd like. Let me know. Thanks Irv.

Agree with the Mikan exhibit.

I like these team issued postcards, rookie year Gretzky and one year before his rookie Roy.
