Thanks, Ed and Brian!

I agree that a complete set is tough, but I took a shortcut by buying the near-set in REA spring 2015. I've been adding, trading, and upgrading since then...trying to complete the set without marks, major paper loss, or trimming.

It's been a lot of fun, and I've met several nice people in the process!

Apologize for one more post-war card from me on this thread, but thought this was too cool to pass up: Autographed Jim Rowe PC of this tough HOFer. Pre-stroke! Guessing this is circa early 1970s.

Default My Lyin' Eyes...



..I thought Oh Hey Wow I'd found the photo that was used to create my 1933 Worch Cigar Fred Schulte and I when I finally got around to cataloging them together I saw that "close only counts in quoits (and hand grenades)".....my memory needs more memory....

Only "one higher," as they say, SGC or PSA....Love the subtle, or not so subtle, depictions of why Cy was great--allegedly did not mess with women, drink, gambling or the horses. Truth to this?

There are some GREAT traders here, and here are two of the GREATEST !!!

Tom B. comes through with a Speaker and Willis. Thought Speaker would take me quite awhile, and a Cycle to boot ..... Willis, love my Sov.150 portraits

Then Luke L. deals me some tough EPDGs, and a very tough (imo ) Doolan/field Sov. ..................... Unreal !!!!

The booze part? No truth to it at all. Especially by 1908.
