Thanks for posting.

If you have time, and don't mind, I'd love to see the scans of your card that received the water droplet.
I am mistaken Irv.....

Finally, could Sy's ocean dump story just be a cover, as he likely sold these 52s to CCC and did not want to promote such a large influx of these cards into the market(even in 1960) and destroy their demand?

The first scan is from a page in the 1976 Sport Americana book. It looks like as far back as 1976 the hi numbers were thought of as scarce.
