But what really made me happy was seeing the George Foster RC posted above. Whatever the final stat lines and Cooperstown voting were, there were no bigger giants on the diamond when I was a kid than George Foster, Steve Garvey, and Dave Parker. That none of the three made the Hall does little to diminish the memories.
We must be about the same age. Parker, Foster, and Garvey were the gods of the game from about '77 to '81 - right when I started following baseball and collecting. I still remember Parker's throw to home in the all-star game. I did not think it a possibility that Garvey would not be inducted to the HOF with his consecutive game streak, MVP season and year after year all-star notation on his card. As a Reds fan growing up, the '78 of foster with his 52 homers on the back of the card was one of my early prized possessions. It is crazy to think that none of them went and I think they (especially Parker & Garvey) were part of a forgotten generation where their stats were strong against their peers at the time but did not stack up against other eras. I also think that the 3-4 years that Parker gave away to his drug use in the early '80s probably cost him 100 homers and 700 hits that would have put him in easily.

Another one for my 52 Topps collection. For it not being a very expensive/rare card it sure was difficult to land one!

John Sherman “Sherm” Lollar (1924-1977) developed into an excellent backstop in the Chicago White Sox organization and won the very first Rawlings Gold Glove for catchers, but also succeeded at the plate striking out fewer times than walking in each of his 15 seasons after becoming an everyday starter (1949-1963). The Cleveland Indians signed Lollar in 1943 and he debuted in 1946, but played much of his first six seasons platooning at catcher with Hall of Famer Yogi Berra and All-Star Jim Hegan, among others. Lollar led the Major Leagues four times in fielding percentage at his position and is the third player in history to register two hits in one inning twice in the same game. Sherm was considered a “dangerous hitter with power” and he had his best season in 1959 when he batted .265 with 22 home runs and 84 RBI as he led the White Sox to the American league pennant. He was a member of the 1947 World Series champion New York Yankees, but lost the 1959 World Series as the “Go-Go White Sox” fell to the Los Angeles Dodgers. The seven-time All-Star and three-time Gold Glove winner posted a .992 career fielding percentage with a 47% caught stealing percentage. In 1954, Lollar led the American League with a 68% caught stealing percentage. Sherm Lollar finished his career with a .264 career batting average, 1,415 hits including 244 doubles and 144 home runs, 623 runs and 808 RBI over 18 seasons. He played for the Indians (1946), the New York Yankees (1947-1948), the St. Louis Browns (1950-1951) and the White Sox (1952-1963). Following his playing days, he joined the Baltimore Orioles coaching staff and won another World Series in 1966.

This weekend I stopped off to pick up a collection from one of my college friends. He said he did not want his cards anymore and his kids were not at all interested. Part of his collection was handed down from his dad who started collecting in the late 40s.

Included was a 48 Leaf Jackie Robinson! which I was very excited to see. As you can see it is inked up. My friend said his dad wrote on some of them to indicated their team. "BD" for Brooklyn Dodgers. My guess is it would be 3ish without the ink. I am very happy to have this as part of the permanent collection and to save it from the dust bin.

Any advice for grading?

Default Upgrade and Additions To Snider Stack O' Stuff



...Upgraded the '54 and added a kinda faded '58 and a 1952 Star-Cal Decal.....at one point 'way earlier in my unfocused collecting career I thought :" Hey ! it would be neat to get all the Brooklyn Dodgers cards of every Brooklyn Dodger who had ever hit a grand slam home run in Ebbet's Field ; maybe twenty years ago, when cards were cheap.....I did some financial calculations , picked myself up off the floor , and went out and bought a new Buick Park Avenue Ultra instead.....I love this hobby....

Nice pickups!
I have been working on a HOF player set and decided on this Mathews as I go back and forth on a type set

1955 Bill and Bob PC

I am probably going to submit this to PSA and am guessing a 3 or 4 would be the grade. Corner have some wear, but no creasing or wrinkles

Thanks, SFMS.

That is a nice P/U yourself. Glad to see you are picking away at your high numbers now.
Your 5's are usually exceptional, and your Al Walker, again, proves that.

Agreed on that Mathews. Not sure I had seen that card before.
Eddie should look great when he gets his new suit of plastic.
Congrats Neal.

Great Matthew Neal! I love the regionals and postcards.

I've admired this Rose for a long time, finally picked one up last week

I echo the comments of the others on the Eddie Matthews. Neal, simply perfect.

Congrats, Abe, on the swell Pete Rose. A very tough to find item.

I am a fellow fan of the immediate post-war regionals. In the spring of 2016, I released a 478-page book devoted to them. Entitled NEVER CHEAPER BY THE DOZEN, I believe you will find lots to learn, enjoy and savor about the original chase cards. Now, it's an E-book on a CD, but it's very easy to read on your computer or laptop, when you insert the disc into the disc drive.

If you wish to read the press release, GOOGLE the title. It will appear; just click on it.

Regardless of whether you choose to investigate and buy my book, sincerest of congrats again. Having collected since 1961, I know from many personal experiences what it means to hunt down a regional you would then consider a prized piece of your collection.
