These '54 and '55 Red Mans and '71 Bazooka cards arrived this week as I continue to build my Clemente/Mays/Aaron/Frank Howard collections.

Anything ex-mt or better from that set is a very tough grade, if it grades out. The Powell looks like it might have been freed from the packet via exacto knife on the left side. It might not grade for that. Still, worth a shot on a PSA bulk submission IMO.
Thanks for the info! If I ever send it in I'll post the results.

Saw Frank and was sure Robinson would follow. What puts Howard in such elite company for you?

I grew up in the D.C. area and was 7 when the Senators moved. Frank Howard and Clemente were my first baseball heroes. I got to meet Hondo a few times in the 1990s in Florida (where I now live) when he was coaching for various teams -- he's a truly nice guy who enjoyed talking about baseball and the Senators. Howard stuff is a lot more reasonably priced than the other guys, although for some reason his 1971 Kellogg's card is very scarce.

I've lived in the DC area for my entire 73+ years, and Frank "Hondo" Howard was about all we had to cheer for in the late 1960's, before our pathetic, expansion Senators left DC for Texas and we suffered for 34 years without a MLB team. This is why I collect Frank Howard cards, even though I am mostly a pre-War collector. Plus, as George said, Hondo is a one heck of a nice guy - truly a gentle giant.

He was a very big dude. Boog is a huge guy and Frank makes him look average at best.

Nice pickup. This card at the height of "Ryan-mania" in the early 1990's sometimes went as high as $200 in EX or better shape. I remember drooling over one in the local pawn shop, where the back room was a mini card shop. Fast forward to the 21st century: I picked up a mid-grade one for around $30 a few years ago...

And they did a decent job of painting over his Mets hat.
