Good advice from both of you, Jesse and Peter.
I think the 51B issue comes from a 'one that got away' story involving a truly perfect PSA 5 that the seller backed out of at the last minute. After a 500 mile flight to pick it up...

Here's the run to date, only since we've been talking about it. Apologies for the mission-creep on the thread

You need a white letter, Dan Dee, and Red Heart if you are to have any self respect.

That's a great looking run. I still haven't found a red heart yet, probably because I haven't been looking very hard. I did pick up a decent dan dee a while back.

The Tip Top Snider is sweet and I'm really digging the Elston Howard. Beautiful card of a very underrated player.

Although these might not compare to ZiggerZagger's Mantles, I just got these from him in today's mail. As a result of another great transaction w ZiggerZagger, I now have a nice stack of 66's stars and commons and a really nice stack of 67's including many hi cards. Many compare condition wise to the 58.

Sweet Mantle Jesse! Mick's Dan Dee has always been a favorite of mine.

Cesar--

Glad you like the cards! I was really glad to put them in the hands of a solid collector and a great guy.
The '67's were really something, having come out of a NM/MT set that I bought a few years ago.

Always happy to help you out with whatever sets are next up for you!

From the BST, a 1979 TCMA Memphis Chicks Tim Raines Pre-Rookie card that was signed in 1979. Possibly the only one in existence! Thanks Tom!

Here's another oddball item, a 1972 Bob Forsch Wedding Baseball Card (w/ Signature) that includes a personal letter from Bob Forsch

Bob Forsch's future Father in law had some "cards" made of Bob and his future wife in a 1971 Topps style showing him with the Arkansas Travelers, whom he played for in 1972. The back shows the future Mrs. Forsch with a baseball stats theme.
