Not really a new pickup but a new re-discovery. I am currently organizing my collection of Baltimore Orioles Team Issues and have owned this Brooks Robinson team issue for some time but never really paid attention to the postmark on back. I don't believe I have seen any other issues other than his Topps card that date to 1957. Obviously, this card features the same image that is found on his Topps card as well. Not the highest graded card of all time but I like the early Robinson signature as well.

A few of my April and May pickups. Been piecing together a mid grade 52 set. I was initially shopping raw lots, but it's made more sense to just buy graded lately due to pricing/grading wait times.

I'm just trying to figure out where M. Carolina (Middle Carolina?) is.

Love the Brooksie team issue. Ive attached a pic of the back of one of mine. The name/address was all completed by Brooks just like yours. Great early autograph; love it!

Glad to see these postmarked and available in 1957. Mines postmarked in 1958. Wonder if they are all off center to the left?

Hi Clint,

You know we need to see your example as well... Is the name/address portion completed by Brooks on your example?

The examples I have seen as well as the few that I have are all off center. Also, the team issue photos I have arent in the greatest shape since they were sent through the mail. I dont have an example in front of me, but I believe the next team issue photo of Brooks was also off center (for whatever reason). I think his middle name isnt spelled correctly on that one either if Im not mistaken.

Very cool! Really like that it was sent from KC during the time the O’s were playing there. Definitely in Brooks’ hand and very bold ball point pen. Can I please see the front as well?!?

This is a card I'm relatively sure nobody really cares about, but I am thrilled to get it and it's a companion piece to the #52 1972 Killebrew In Action card I posted last month. For set builders, it is virtually impossible to ever find a centered version of this Cleon and even harder still to find one without a noticeable tilt to it. This one does have the very slightest of a leftward lean, but it's still the closest thing to centered I've seen in quite some time...

Picked up a couple raw, mid-grade HOF cards for my '52 Bowman set. Off centered and budget friendly

My mother passed away on Sunday after battling a neurological illness for about a year. Despite the timeframe, it was super aggressive and she went from driving to almost totally debilitated in a period of not much more than 6 months. As a reminder of our happier times, I was able to pick this up yesterday at the LCS while running errands related to her service, and I guess I am thinking of this as kind of a final memory piece. Mom was the original supporter of my vintage card habit, buying me singles at now long-gone LCSs in NC back in the late 1980s. There was never a Ryan rookie, but there were plenty of Mantles. We had our ups and downs over the course of life like as in any family, but the happiest times I can remember as a kid were going to the baseball card shop with Mom... Im glad shes finally getting the rest she deserves.

My condolences. May your mother rest in peace. Hope that Ryan rookie kindles happy memories every time you look at it. My Mom, gone 15 years now, was a similar supporter of my card-collecting habit.

My mom passed away 10+ years ago. Her contribution was throwing out my huge boxes of 60s and early 70s cards when I went to school. Later in life she was stunned to learn that cards had acquired so much value.

Some additional LCS pickups today. The Clemente is lower-grade, but well centered and the color really pops, so I went with it. I am not 100% sure, but think these are some of if not the first 63 Fleers Ive ever owned.

Another toughie off my list. Corners only graded 3 which I think is pretty harsh. But I got it for the centering. Other grades are: centering 8.5; edges 7.5; surface 7.

My mom saved my cards in the closet when I went to college. She passed in 2016. I once asked her why she didn't throw them away. She said something like even though you're a man, I wanted the little boy in you never to leave.

Well done! That's a tough card to find with great centering.

Thanks Lou. I really thought this would be one of the last two or three Id need given the centering issues and cost of well-centered examples, but things worked out. I have been working on this set for a VERY long time so its nice to see patience rewarded!

Another in a long line of sharp cards I've accumulated with qualifiers...

1970aaron500psa8oc.jpg

It's a touch o/c top to bottom, but before people started putting cards in slabs, nobody would've ever thought there was something 'wrong' with it...and I got it for a song, which is beautiful!!

I couldn't agree more, Lou.

I think that is definitely the most centered copy I have seen to date.

Nice P/U, STG.

About 15-17 years ago, I had one of these that probably wouldve been at least a 6, but was not smart enough to hang onto it. I have literally been kicking myself ever since. Righted the ship today with this example Not in nearly the same technical condition, but it met my criteria at least for bright color, a crispy image, and the creases dont really affect the eye-appeal that much. Welcome home, Splinter!

Hello all, New to Net54 and recently started collecting again! I love all baseball vintage, but I really focus on the 1971 topps baseball! Heres a couple from this month Im really pumped for: I currently have about 50 or so, and have fun finding more all the time!

I was such a dangerous hitter I even got intentional walks during batting practice.

Straight 9's of this variation go for huge amounts of money, so I happily grabbed this slightly off-centered one for just a fraction of the price...

Ok, these aren't May pick ups, but I did just get them back from SGC. I knew they wouldn't grade better than vgex, but I was surprised by a couple of the grades nonetheless. They still have nice eye appeal IMO, though the centering isn't the greatest on a couple of them. The Mays has a little extra blob of factory ink on his cheek.

At one time, I wouldn't have given cards with these technical grades a second look. When I sent them in, I intended to sell them. However, when I got them back, I just couldn't sell them...and one is a duplicate for me!

Darren,

That's not even that bad OC at all. Seriously, why the OC designation on that one? Nice pick up man!
