Default Holy Grail Soccer cards

It always feels great to track down one of your "holy grails" or "white whales" - regardless of the sport. This is one of my soccer while whales. I am quite certain that this is not my most expensive card, but it is certainly one that I have wanted for a long time and am very thankful that I finally tracked one down.

For whatever reason, I love the "art deco" feel of this card!

Default Why?

Al - I am not familiar with this card. But I am familiar with your collection. You have one of the best soccer card collections in the world (and it may actually be the best). I believe you when you say this is a Holy Grail - but why?

What makes this card so cool that you have been tracking it. Also, for how long have you been hunting for it?

Default I am not sure....

to me honest.... I just loved the look of it. I have been looking for it for for many years... probably like 5-7. I think that I found the set on an Italian "museum site" and just fell in love with the issue. The same thing happened to me with the Billikens from Cuba in my Negro League collection. I think that these are the main reasons that I love the card are:

1. The design - so unique and art deco
2. Most of Meazza's cards have the same photo and this one looks quite different
3. The has something interesting on the back (as opposed to just a blank back) or a simple "chocolate" stamp
4. It is horizontal (and I had SGC do a custom cut to show it this way) - which always seem a bit more magical

Again, it is not my most expensive card in my collection, but it is one of my favorites...

and thanks for sharing your perception of my soccer card collection. I am not sure that it is the best / biggest in the world, but I have certainly worked hard to include a lot of diversity and some of the key players (from my perspective) since the game's inception!
