Default March Pickups

M.Grant.jpgGrant has dedicated himself to studying and promoting the history of blacks in baseball. On his official website, Grant pays tribute to the fifteen black pitchers (including himself) who have won 20 games in a season. The "15 Black Aces" are: Vida Blue, Al Downing, Bob Gibson, Dwight Gooden, Grant, Ferguson Jenkins, Sad Sam Jones, Don Newcombe, Mike Norris, David Price, J. R. Richard, C.C. Sabathia, Dave Stewart, Dontrelle Willis, and Earl Wilson. In 2006, Grant released his long-awaited book, The Black Aces, Baseball's Only black Twenty-Game Winners, featuring chapters on each of the black pitchers to have at least one twenty win season, and also featuring Negro League players that Mudcat felt would have been 20 game winners if they were allowed to play. The book was featured in the Hall of Fame during Induction Weekend 2006, and in February 2007 President Bush honored Mudcat and fellow Aces, Ferguson Jenkins, Dontrelle Willis and Mike Norris, and the publication of the book at a ceremony at the White House "From Wikipedia "

Received this card in the mail today. Apparently it's not considered a rookie card by most but it was issued the same season as his Topps rookie card.



Also awaiting the arrival of my first Dan Dee card which has lots of good honest wear. I am on a bit of regional/non-mainstream issue kick lately.

Nice pick ups guys. Dustin that Irvin looks great!

I picked up this one last night from one of my favorite Topps sub-sets from the 1961 issue.

Dustin, I like your regional / food issue pick-ups. These kind of cards, discs, coins, premiums make for a marvelous type card collection. Each is a nifty conversation piece, which is really is a theme I bring out in my lengthy E-book on a CD about the subject, NEVER CHEAPER BY THE DOZEN.

A problem today is that collecting one or two complete sets of these kind of cards can consume an enormous amount of time and money, depending on the grade of item you must have, and if you go all the way and have the items professionally-graded by PSA / SGC. Thus doing makes your collection infinitely more marketable when the time comes to sell, or sad to say, if we succumb before we though we would.

Thanks for sharing your joy, bro! ---Brian Powell

Very grateful for some deals on these cards today at a local card show at our mall.


The '58 Mantle is pretty clean with some light fading but the deal was too good to pass on.

Both the '68 Mantle and Koufax are clean.

Dustin, That Monte Irvin Dandee is a way cool looking card. Like the Winfield disk as well. I have one in my collection somewhere but certainly not in the Gem Mint condition. Congrats.

Thanks Ray. I've been getting into Mantle lately. Hoping to pick a couple more up.
