Post your favorite Yaz items
 
I know I'm still new to Net54, but for those of you who don't know, I am a player collector and a passionate one. Those of you who peruse the football card forum might have seen my Gino Cappelletti thread and maybe seen me mention that I am a John Hannah collector as well. However, my biggest collecting focus and passion is collecting Carl Yastrzemski.

With that in mind, I wanted to start a thread for others to share their favorite Yaz items in their collections. I'll start it off by showing some of my personal favorites. For those of you who want to see more of my collection, here is a link to my Yaz Master Set: http://www.psacard.com/PSASetRegistr...6&m=33062&ac=0

I know this card doesn't have a high technical grade, but I love it. It was a Christmas gift from my wife and sons back when we were poor and I think it has great eye appeal.

http://i1199.photobucket.com/albums/...AZ/61TYaz7.jpghttp://i1199.photobucket.com/albums/...tamp%20Yaz.jpg

The stamp is pop 3, 3 higher.

The 63 Fleer is a new addition. The 67 sticker holds tons of sentimental value and is probably one of my 2 favorite items in my entire collection.

Thanks Al, I was surprised there wasn't a Yaz thread already started on this site. Figured I better start one. You must have cool Yaz stuff to share!

I typically don't collect signed cards, but the '69 Topps Yaz card is not only a great looking card the signature makes it look even better; love it!

I personally keep trying to find a nice OPC Deckle for my PC, but can't find a nice one like the one you have of Yaz.

Thanks so much for sharing your Yaz collection.

Nice Yaz collection! The first pack of cards I ever bought and my only 1972 pack contained Yaz and I still have the card. Its pretty rough as i was five years old at the time and carried that card around for years with my 1973s thru 1975s in an old metal keyed box. Just for fun i will post a picture of it tomorrow.

My dad is a huge Yaz fan. He's not much of a memorabilia collector, but I try to pick him up a Yaz item once a year...when Jim stinson offered this one up a few years back I couldn't pass it up... It's signed by the entire Yaz Family, more than likely during spring training of Carl's rookie campaign... It has since been framed with a photo of Carl Sr. During his semi pro days! With his two sons (Richard and Carl) who were bat boys at the time....

DBesse27 11-06-2015 07:58 AM

Wow, that's pretty awesome. The Sox actually had sent a scout to Long Island to scout Carl Sr when they discovered junior. It sounds like senior was a hell of a good ball player himself.

And I gotta say, that's the only Hattie Yastrzemski signature I've ever seen. :)

I don't have one but I think a Yaz bat would be a neat crossover collectors item.

I pick up Yaz items frequently and I promise not to post them all, but I was excited about this one that came today. I hadn't planned to upgrade my PSA 4, but this 6 is much nicer in terms of corners and centering, and the price was right. Only 7 copies graded higher, so very happy with a nice mid grade copy:

Don't promise to "not post them all"; shoot...post them all! :D As a single player collector, although not Yaz, I enjoy seeing others cards that collect similarly. Plus you gotta love Yaz!

I personally don't have much in regard to Yaz, but I do really like the '68 Sports Illustrated poster. I guess they produced a ton since it's still a pretty inexpensive piece.

DBesse27 11-19-2015 05:28 PM

Yeah, I love that poster!

http://i1199.photobucket.com/albums/.../65T%20Yaz.jpg

Got a helluva deal on this 65 Topps and it arrived in the mail today.Thanks! I actually prefer this over most of the basic set, because the photo is so unique. Almost every other basic issue is a head shot or a batting stance. The 65T is definitely different.

This card leaves me 1 card shy of completing the 60's portion of the PSA basic set. Then I need 1 new and 1 upgrade to finish the 70's and the 1980 Topps and 81 Donruss I just added leave me needing 2 new to finish the 80's. Below is my wish list, the only cards I need before I consider my 34-card basic set complete:

1963 Topps #115 in PSA 7
1971 Topps #530 in PSA 7.5 or 8
1973 Topps #245 in PSA 8
1982 Topps #650 in PSA 9
1984 Fleer #412 in PSA 10

If you have any of those for sale or trade, please let me know. Thanks!

Howdy, podnah. I don't know if this sort of Yaz would interest you, but you may wish to consider the fantasy card that former Sports Collectors Digest editor and publisher Bob Lemke crafted earlier this year. He made a fantasy 1961 Post Cereal Yaz.

If you're interested, I will say the scan he posted of it on Net54 postwar board was brilliant, and well worth the small amount of money you will pay for it. Bob offered the six different 1961 Post Cereal cards he did as a typical backside of box sheet of 6, with Yaz, Frank Howard, Sandy Koufax, Jackie Jenson, and Jim Kaat. I forget the sixth player, but he puts a lot of thought and tender loving care into each of his creations.

With a Bob Lemke fantasy card, it's not about how much they're going to appreciate in value; rather, it's about how much you are going to appreciate the card, and being entertained and enraptured by its beauty with owning one in your collection for just a few bucks.

Perhaps someone on here can help you find the thread from earlier this past spring, and help you locate Mr. Lemke. That is, of course, if a fantasy card of Yaz would push your "gotta have it" button. If not, no big deal.

Kind regards, Brian Powell

That's a great 67 Topps!

Huge mail day today, courtesy of some Christmas generosity by my friend Casey. Here are a couple of the new additions.

This is a big one. With this card filling a gap, I'm now done with the 1960-70 portion of the basic set!

Thank you Dan. Ditto to your stuff.

Here are a few more.

I know a photo but it perfectly combines prewar Red Sox with Postwar Red Sox. All 3 were great Of's for the Sox. Yaz looks great in this photo (1962) with Harry and Duffy.

And in honor of that great triple crown season, his 67 card.

And last but not least (for me), the signed photo is very near and dear to me. It was signed for me at the greater Boston sportsman show in Nov, 1967 and Yaz was on top of the world. I was 7 years old and my Uncle (along with my Dad) arranged for me to meet him backstage. I was a lucky kid in that my Uncle knew Yaz very well as they went to school (Merimack) and palled around together so he got me backstage and it was just me, Dad and my Uncle. We chatted for 20 minutes. You will notice the photo is torn because in a fit of anger one year after it was signed, I tore it in half. Very misguided but almost 50 years later, it is a great reminder of my youth and love for the Red Sox.

Michael S, what are those little stamps that look like 1976 and 1977 Topps cards? I see you've got 1973 and 1981 too. What are they?

Paul,

Very good question. I know they are not period or issued by Topps. I believe they were included in a very large Yaz collection I purchased awhile back that was filled with all sorts of fun Yaz stuff including accomplishment newspapers, photo's, pins. It was massive and these stamps were in the lot. I just put them in my Yaz binder and did not think much about them. By the way, that same lot had every mainstream Yaz card from his playing days and they were all raw and I have since graded most of them with all coming back 7-9 psa. They were incredible.

Anyway, I think the stamps are some sort of novelty items, issued who know's when?

Shoebox 12-14-2015 02:47 PM

Just won this Yaz item last night but I think I like the back ad as much as anything. Would love one of those tshirts.

Got outbid on a Yaz rookie card last night. I believe it was a PSA 7 but obviously the winner wanted it more than I did as every time I put in a bid it was immediately beat.

Seen it for around $25 to begin and I went as high as almost $50.00, which was still a good deal imo, but with shipping, import, exchange rate, etc, it was getting to far out of reach.

I believe the purchaser got a good deal, even though I likely made him spend another $30.00 or so bucks for it.

DBesse27 02-15-2016 04:51 PM

Thanks Derek, that Venz RC is awesome! That's a card I'd love to own, that I probably never will.

I recently landed a major upgrade of my regular Topps RC. I'm thrilled about it and will share it when it arrives, but the seller is taking his sweet time shipping it.

Didn't know if I'd ever upgrade my Yaz RC. I hadn't seen any PSA 4's that had better eye appeal than my PSA 2. But I made a couple of sales on eBay, saved my pennies, and then stumbled upon this PSA 5. Set a low snipe and won it for significantly less than VCP. Thrilled to have this upgrade! I even love the rough cut.
