BST Auctions football stuff
 
So anybody win anything nice in BST's auction that ended Sunday? What did you think of the items? How about the midnight close? Other comments?

I thought the football stuff was really good. Good mix of mainstream and odd-ball items. Prices were pretty strong too comparing some of them to previous auctions.

What do you think?

I watched the auction but am not a football collector so didn't do a lot of bidding. I think I bid on one card but lost it. It did look like a lot of rare football stuff was in the auction.

One argument in favor of the all night marathon bidding

Shifting resources to avoid breaking the bank is compromised.

On the west coast initial bidding on additional items closed at 2 PM.

South of the arctic circle you cannot be playing golf at 2 AM.

QED

On the positive side however, my resources remain shiftable. :D

I only bid on the Chicle premium set and didn't win. The set looked to be in really nice condition which is probably why it sold higher than the last set.

Even though I'm really interested in the history of the game and up until 1948, there weren't a whole lot of card issues, I just haven't gotten into collecting memorabilia. BST is the only auction house I've noticed that leads with football though - I still have the catalog on my desk - its fun to look at. Usually football winds up in the back of other catalogs. I'm curious to see the high grade Mayos they mentioned will be up in their next auction - I think it might be a board member consigning those.

Looking at the registry, its pretty clear who's Mayo's those are. I wonder if it's gonna be sold as a complete set, individual cards, or a combo auction?

I thought there were lots of great things in the auction and some of the items definitely went for a premium.

Anyone here win the '49 Topps Varsity box topper? I dropped out but that was a neat piece. There were a lot of sweet pieces offered.

Does anybody know who bought the Eskimo pie set?

Took a run at it, Dan, but fell short by quite a bit. Thought the price was pretty strong.

Was going to upgrade some of mine and sell off the rest with you getting first crack at the Cappelletti. Sorry I fell short.

So not a SINGLE collector other than me picked up a football item in the BST Auction? I'll get my stuff scanned in soon and post here and the Ode to Pre War thread but hoping for more images from members

I was fortunate to win a small group 1960 Topps/OPC Football Tattoos in BST and buy a collection from an old-time collector in the same week!!
These are probably the rarest Topps FB issue. Similar to the Baseball, but much rarer. Comprised of College Team Logos, FB action scenes, Pro Team Logos, and 14 Players. Not all have been seen as individual Tattoos to my knowledge.

Here are my extras: 10 College Logos and 8 Action Scenes. Some have some paper residue on the back from a stamp hinge, but many that have surfaced are that way. They were printed by OPC in Canada. To my knowlege it was the 1st time they labelled a product with OPC.

Except for some blank-backed proofs from Topps Vault and some cut down remnants of full Tattos, you will not find a single full-sized 1960 Topps FB Tattoo on Ebay. In fact, I don't believe you can find a dealer in the US or Canada that has one. I am waiting to hear back from one board member this weekend, so let me know if your interested via a PM.
