I don't purchase too much modern, but I like this card. Has an old school feel to it, although thinner card stock than the 1970 & 1971 Topps Supers.

2019 Topps Heritage Box Loader & Wrapper (same image as 1970 Topps card)...

Very cool companion piece. I even like the envelope with the postal stamp.

Also, Iím with you I donít pick up much of the modern stuff, but I like the box topper. I picked up a Brooks one as well when they came out. Liked the look...

Thanks Mark & Mike!

Mike, there was another one on eBay I think last week, but it had a hefty price tag ($500). The seller has relisted it a few times, so I’m sure he’ll relist it again. He did offer a Best Offer option I think.

Trying to put a run of Pirates pocket schedules from 1955-1972 (the schedules from the 1950s are tough to find). Here are a few years I don't think I've posted yet...

1962...



1963...





1972...

Strange how the Pirates/Allegheny Motor Inn used an old Roger Maris graphic on their schedule. Perhaps a subtle dig about the 1960 World Series?

Thanks docpatlv. If you really like it (rather than just being polite), then I'd like to gift it to you in appreciation of your thread and all you've done for it.

For various reasons it doesn't "fit" into my collection. I got it since it seemed scarce, yet not particularly pricey; but now it is an odd one out for me, and I'd be thoroughly satisfied if it found a good appreciative home...seriously, let me know.

WOW, very nice and classy gesture, that card couldn't find a better home than docpatlv's collection. Kudos to you!

I don't mind that this is OC. I like this pix to begin with and I'm not that fond of the grey borders anyhow (though they have grown on me over time).

Well, after a seemingly neverending trip up and down the east coast, Roberto's 1957 Topps blank back has found a new home.

I can't thank Michael (Empty77) enough for his generosity. As I told him, it is the most generous gift I have ever received on Net54. He was a class act all the way through, even when the card seemed to be delivered to the wrong address at one point. It all worked out and I am ecstatic to add him to the collection.

Thanks again Michael!!!

Based on that I dated it as 1981 item. I then I did a bit of research and came across the Mar 25, 1981 Valley Independent Newspaper.
FYI: Hunt has one right now, lot #282 finishing 7/9 in live format it seems, no bids yet.

I saw that one. It's has attracted some bidders as it's now at $520. That's almost twice what I paid for mine. It's hard to place a value on such items due to scarcity. It is a beautiful item if you are in to Clemente. I'm curious what it will bring in on Tuesday.

Michael & Mike,

It is a great poster, saw Mike post on the memorabilia side it's from 1981. Did not know that.

Speaking of posters, here's one from 2019. I just liked the way it looked. It's for The Clemente Museum block party. If you've never seen photos of the museum, its worth doing a search. He has some amazing Clemente items.

It is curious, since it had been live for days to weeks with no bids and a min bid of $100 if I recall, and then within a few hours of when I mentioned it here, it's up to $500...makes it appear I'm plugging it or have something invested in the outcome...which I don't other than it finds a good home. When I saw the lot I remembered the pic from this thread and the discussion that it was scarce and thought it worth mentioning in case one of the few dedicated readers here was on the lookout for one.

Also curious, and I may be wrong here, but I could swear that the lot description said "circa 1970s" yesterday before my post, and the reason I remember is because I chuckled to myself about it, knowing the discussion in this thread. Now the lot description reads "circa 1980s", which still hedges, but it certainly seems like someone from Hunts is scanning this forum (or a reader alerted them) and bothered to edit the write-up. Kudos to them for that. Too often the AH's don't bother to clarify mistakes pointed out to them, presumably when the original is perceived to be in their favor.

Thanks for the suggestion. Not being in the area, I did not know about the museum and although subconsciously probably presumed there were museums I had never made the effort to research it. Now that I know, I anticipate arranging to stop in when near enough or just planning a deliberate trip for it.

I knew Dwayne years ago - Great stand up guy - equally great photographer and Clemente fan. Used to have some of the stuff sold in the family Auction - haven't been in years, but used to be AWESOME! In a great old firehouse too. Double check about operating hours or by appointment?
