Default November pickups

I thought I'd start us off this month.

This just came in today. This is pretty much the personification of what I'm looking for as I build the 1975 Topps set. The left to right centering is very slightly off, but acceptable in light of everything else. The edges and corners are beautiful. 4 of the sharpest corners I've ever seen on a 1975 Topps card. It looks like it just came out of a pack (and it might have before being sent off for grading. It's in the new slab). The color is flawless. And there's not even a hint of a print flaw anywhere to be seen. This should be an 8.5, in my opinion. It's just beautiful.



I will have more cards from this set coming in over the next four weeks. Let's have a great month, guys. Have fun!!!

Default 1971 Topps Greatest Moments

I put this set together a long time ago. I like to keep an unopened pack or at least a wrapper with each set. Never have seen an unopened pack for these, nor had I seen a wrapper until this one came up in a recent auction.

A great start this month Guys. Al - I'm drooling! The '71 greatest moments is one of the "non-mainstream" sets I want to put together along with the '64 standups.

Al, that is a fantastic wrapper. I've never seen one either. Do you think it was actually issued or a very limited test perhaps? There are lots of 1971 Greatest Moments cards around, but never a wrapper until now. Very nice. Is there more to the story?

Strong start to the month guys!

Got these in the mail today. Two more down in the 58 AS subset. Still searching for a mid-grade Mantle at the price I want.
