Day 16

When I first purchased this next item, it was genuinely a tough item to acquire. Many years later there was a find of these (still sealed in original packaging) which made them much more available and much cheaper as well. I have purchased duplicates of these over the last few years because of that find.

Default Great items Mike!

Really enjoying the thread. So the card I'm posting is on most Clemente Collectors (and many non Clemente collectors) want lists. Many have never seen one. Ironically the first time I saw a 1958 Kahn's Clemente was at the first Robert Morris show I set up at (2nd show that was ever run there). I was overwhelmed with the number of Clemente items - many of which at the time I had never seen. When a guy walked in and showed me his 58 Kahn's (in really nice condition) - it was just another Clemente card I hadn't seen yet. He wanted "full book" price on it (at the time I think $500-$600). He said if I wouldn't pay full book for it, I had no idea what I was looking at. Neither of us budged. He was right! It took years before I held another in my hands. I have been fortunate enough to have owned 3 of them (2 of them long ago sold to other collectors) in the last 30 years - the one pictured is far and away the best condition one I have had. As a beginning to understanding how tough this card is -PSA has graded 32 Kahn's Clemente's from 1957, 23 from 1959 (another tough card) and just 7 from 1958. I just googled "1958 Kahn's Clemente" and not 1 image of this card appeared (I did spot images of every other Clemente Kahn's issue. Definitely one of the highlights of my collection. I have never understood or heard speculation as to why this card (and the 58 set in general) is so much tougher than any other. Enjoy!

Howard,

That is a gorgeous card! I still don't have one, and probably never will. I have no idea why it's so scarce either. Love the unique pose.

Day 17

Another item that I've been able to obtain multiples of. One of my favorite pocket schedules.

1961 Otto Milk Pirates pocket schedule...and dupes.

Jim Beckett had a 58 Kahns and he pictured it in his Annual Price Guide. I always figured that I would be able to find one because of that. 7 is a low population, but I have found cards with lower populations.



This has a psa pop 5 and is highest graded.



This has a psa pop of 5 with 1 higher.



This has a psa pop of 5 with 1 higher. 2 sold last year.



This is my favorite card. It has a psa pop of 3 with 2 graded Auth.

So I have hope that one day I will get a 58 Kahns.

This set of 1971 Pittsburgh Pirates Autograph Cards is one of my favorites. It was hard for me to come by a nice complete set with the checklists. If you are so inclined to put this set together for some reason PSA will not grade the checklists. If interested here is the population report. https://www.psacard.com/pop/baseball...ph-cards/94568 I doubt it reflects the availability of the cards as I am sure that there are few people who actually grade them. There are 34 graded Clementes so that may serve as some what of a barometer?

Great stuff rats60 and Mike!

Day 18

This is the first baseball I picked up with Roberto's autograph. I picked it up the same year that I purchased the signed photo in one of my earlier posts. Again, purchased from Ed Dolan's Baseball Fanatic Super Store in NJ. Does anyone know if Ed's store is still open? It was, by far, my favorite store to shop at back in the day.

Default Clemente

Wow! Some very cool and rare items being shown; oddball and test issue items are always my favorite. The Ď58 Kahnís is very nice; I donít believe Iíve seen this particular year before. While Iím not to crazy about the looks of the Stand-ups I guess I just like them because of their rarity and the Clemente is no exception. Sure wish Brooksie was part of the grouping.
