Default Sandy Koufax Collector/Collection

I've decided to embark on collecting Sandy Koufax memorabilia up to 1980. As a kid growing up he was one my all-time favorite left-handed pitchers. I have all of his Topps issued cards. This is becoming a costly project if you know what I mean. I would prefer to trade or buy on the cheap naturally. I have plenty of cards for trade.

So, what I'm looking for are all Exhibits, pins, postcards, team issue photos, coins, stamps, APBA, or basically all odd-ball stuff of Sandy.

If you have anything I might be interested in let me know and I'll see what I can come up with trade/money-wise.


Cheers,
Kent

Hi Kent,
Here's a true oddball Koufax postcard I would offer for sale. It's a C.1960's Souvenir Shop Team Issued card of Sandy Koufax with a factory misprint. Let me know if you're interested.

If you want a very, very tough one, try to find the 1962 Post Canadian Cereal Koufax 7 ounce Grape Nuts Flakes version, with "walks" spelled correctly, rather than "wzlks" (what's a "wzlk"?). You most likely will have a very long but inevitably rewarding search should you find one.

Best of luck,

Larry

My very first vintage Koufax was quite the oddball. It was a 1961 Topps mini that I picked up for $2 (!) at my very first card show around 1980 in L.A. Very exciting for a ten year old kid!

A few years later I learned someone had simply cut the border off the card and it wasn't a mini at all!

I'd suggest you expand your collection up to 1981. There is a cool TCMA card of Koufax as coach for the AAA Albuquerque Dukes that can be had pretty cheaply.

Sounds like a fun endeavor!

This thread needs more pictures (not for sale).

There is a dedicated cadre of Koufax collectors out there. We like random stuff

Count me in as another Koufax collector. I doubt I'll ever get the Test Disc or Punch-Outs. Those are awesome. Here's mine (minus a few changes since the pic is a couple years old)...
