Bob from New York. Great guy. The person I bought my 82 A and B uncut sheets from. He is very close with David Shultz.

This is really cool. Bob from New York sent me this pic yesterday.

Dr. D. devotes an entire page of his book to showcasing his personal Rax card.

I think it is awesome that he takes personal pride in it.



Edit: No clue why pics continue to post sideways when I upload them.

I should have been more clear.

That is Dr. David Shultz card. He had one before any of us did and wouldn’t sell it.

Nice to see some cards get listed! Looks like they spent some time on the floor at the event!

Very solid final price of $785. I had estimated I thought this would finish between $700 and $800 and personally I think that is a very strong price for cards that are in such poor condition.

My 2k for the sealed set is not looking bad!

While the set looks a bit dated and the quality suspect, I like this set as it's truly rare. A legit run of 1200 sets total? Wow.

I as tempted to bid, but with the missing cards and stains I passed. What would those grade out as with the stains and all?

Some of the cards had severe paper loss so I would bet the range would have been probably 1 to 4.

I had put in some bids not really thinking I would win but at a range where had I won I could have gotten some of the cards signed and felt good about the price paid.

This is one of the few sets where just having the cards is what is more important than the grades. Obviously nicer condition cards will bring more interest but you don't see many relatively modern sets of cards from any genre that will sell at this price in such poor condition.

After they were listed I really liked the cards more because I think the damage gives them character. Almost like someone picked them up off the floor from the venue. Pretty cool.

I also thought the final price was pretty strong. I know the set is extremely rare, but the star power of the set does not compare to the Wrestling All-Stars. Other than Dr. D. and, to a lesser extent, Robert Gibson, Dennis Condrey and Bobby Eaton, most of the names in the set are not going to be recognizable to fans of today. Even Haku is not going to be recognizable to casual collectors under the "Prince Tonga" moniker.

Most of the stuff in my collection are cards where collectors can't be picky about condition because they come up for sale/auction so infrequently. I don't know how familiar you are with old timey baseball cards, but I love the "character" of 1915 Cracker Jack cards that are stained with caramel residue showing that they were obviously in packages of Cracker Jacks at some point rather than pristine examples that obviously were dispensed through the mail-in option that was also available for the set.

I have written this on here before, but I love cards that may show up only once a decade so much more than 52 Topps Mantle's or T206 Cpbb's that can be had any day of the week if a collector is simply willing to spend the money. My heart skips a beat when I get an occasional e-mail notification that one of my eBay alerts has gone off. Some of my favorite cards are $200 cards that I have only ever seen for sale/at auction one time. Based on how elusive the Rax cards are, I fully understand why it is such a cool set to hunt down.
