That being said, it must be nice.

is that Condiotti will never own ALL the "best of the best". My cards pale next to his but I have several caramel cards which are the highest graded and he ain't gettin' em

Candiotti comes across as a genuine collector. Noticed how many times he uses the word "love" to describe a card ... "I love that Mays card" ... "I have T206 Eddie Plank in PSA8. I love that card" ... "I also love my 1941 Play Ball Joe DiMaggio" ... Sounds like a kid describing his favorite toys.

Funny that he-=-apparently-prefers the '49 Bowman Paige to the '48 (?) Leaf.

Not into 19th century, I see.

It looks like Tom is very fond of the but I am very curious if he has any idea about grading. He makes the note that he had a guy helping him. Is Tom aware of the scandles that have happened upon PSA. Too me he is another collector with blind faith in PSA. The article is mainly there to promote PSA.

By the way Bob, he is not interested in the players he does not know. Just a jealous comment because I don't have any really high greade stuff.

He's got an awesome collection. It's even more awesome when I read through his list and NOT one of his cards did I go WOW. Great collection but different taste (thank goodness). That's all we need is another "money is no object" collector in our little vintage space. Yeah, he's got a few biggies but you can tell where his addiction lies. later

That card is a classic.

Of course, when it comes to Paige, I like the 53 Topps best with that martian (?) logo.

Don't own any of 'em; can't bring myself to pay the $$ for postwar cards, thanks to you folks Have to live with my Exhibit card. BTW, if you want a Paige and don't feel like spending high three to low four figures, the Exhibit is a great deal.

Sorry for all the edits this a.m.; too much agave (as in Tequila) last night and I feel like I'm typing through a haze. Never, ever drink Margaritas and watch "From Dawn To Dusk" again...

Perhaps if we had the resources some of us would also collect like Tom, but I wouldn't be one of them. Seemed odd that he put together a list of everyone else's top 25, then went after that. Why not build a list of YOUR top 25? Also, having to have the best of each card, as defined by PSA. Seemed like he is more into the holders than the cards. I would guess that Tom would much prefer a PSA9 with light ink, weaker registration, than a PSA8 with perfect color, etc.

It's also interesting that he was duped by so many trimmed cards, but now feels so safe with high-grade, high-dollar cards in PSA slabs. Using PSA to protect you from yourself? Oops.

I say investor, not collector.
