Another 1952 Bowman Large arrived today. I need just four more cards for my set! Gino Marchetti NFL HOF 1972. Never played for the Redskins, but I guess the previous owner thought so (penciled in on the back). Cost after shipping and eBay bucks promotion $34.78 around 13.9% NM "book".
Hope everyone is doing great out there!
Larry

Slowly chipping away at my Sammy Baugh autographed run. I also picked his 48 Bowman and 52 Bowman (small)...both signed from a fellow board member. I just need to get some good scans. Also I haven't seen another 49 Leaf but plenty of the 48 Leafs, even though that's the only one I need to complete.

Finally I have something new to post! My shrinking want-list makes the hits few and far between, and my 10% threshold is thrown out the window! I just want to mark something off my list. These two '63 Fleer cards takes me down to just seven cards left!
#15 Don Maynard NM "book" is $40 I paid $13.20 shipped (33% book)
#64 SP Bob Dougherty NM "book" is $75 I paid $23.20 (31% book)

Thanks Jeff, I'm busy completing my 50s 60s 70s non-sports sets and having a ball with that (and not having to spend a fortune). I'm also working on another football project as well. Hope to meet you at the National this year!
Larry

Friday morning when I checked my email, I had notices from eBay that some of the cards I watch had new listings. Three of the four cards I need for my 1952 Bowman Large set had been added! When I checked the listings, all were from Deans Cards. And if you didn't know, this seller takes a lot of heat for listing very over-priced cards.

Months ago, I abandoned my attempt to get these cards at 10% book or less, and moved my threshold to 20% book price or less. Two of the three cards met this criteria, and the third was close enough for me! I checked and double checked my math, believe me!

Normally I would have watched these three cards, and then pulled the trigger when I got an eBay bucks promotion. Not for these cards, I bought them then and there! I need just one more card to complete my 1952 Bowman Large set, #29 Hugh McElhenny RC ("books" NM $250)

First up #99 Joe Stydahar RC and SP. The Standard Catalog NM "value" is $950 and the Buy It Now price $165 or 17.3% book.





Next card #108 Hubert Johnson RC "value" $750 NM BIN price $200 or 26.6% book.





Now #135 Gene Ronzani RC and SP "books" $900 NM and the BIN price was $150 or 16.6% book.





I purchased these cards Friday, and they attempted to deliver yesterday (Monday) but I was not home to sign for them. I picked them up just now from the US Post Office. Cards were shipped for free. Total spent (on these little pieces of worthless cardboard) $515 compared to NM "value" $2,600 is 19.8%.

Those are three REALLY tough cards, Larry, so congrats for snagging them. People underestimate how difficult the super SPs are in this set.

Good job.
