Recent raw pickups:



1979-83 Coral Lee postcards. PSA grades the set, and has graded another Yaz from the set (#15C), but has never graded this single. I bought a lot of 15 of them and these were the nicest 2, already mailed to PSA. If the photo looks familiar, you might have seen this photo I have, signed by President Carter:



I'd like to have Yaz sign it too, but that's an expensive proposition. Then I got some graded Yaz cards in the mail yesterday:



Never liked this card much, but this is a really nice copy, without PD's and registration issues I almost always see on this card.



I love really well done hand-cut cards, happy with this one

I know I do most of the posting in this thread, but I really hope others will post cool Yaz items as well. Here are my latest pre-1980 Yaz additions:




This checks boxes both for my Yaz collection and my 68 Venz set. This is my 5th Venz Yaz card, but my first one that's a "solo" card, without other players on it. Pretty rough, but happy to have it. Only 5 graded higher. Some paper loss on back, but not enough to obscure his face. I'm chipping away at a couple of the subsets within my 68 Venz registry. There are 7 Yaz cards in the set and I now have 3/7. And there are 10 All Star cards and I now have 3/10.



1976 MSA Red Barn disc. Everything I've read about the MSA discs (mostly in this forum) says the Red Barn one is the scarcest. PSA has only graded 7 copies of this disc. There are 2 variations: one with the Kenosha address on the back and one with no address on back. This one obviously has the Kenosha address.

Nice pickup. I really like the 1970 and 1971 Topps Supers. Great pics that usually have cool background shots.

I detest the Red Sox and especially the 1970s players who fought it out with my Yankees, but the 1973 Topps Yaz is part of one of my favorite Simpsons memes "when he had the big sideburns":

How do print speckles affect the Yaz rookie?

Finally got around to scanning my cards from a recent Yaz private signing



For sentimental reasons, this card becomes the #1 card in my collection, and the last one I would ever part with. Christmas 2011 we didn't have any money, but my then-wife and kids, knowing I'd always dreamed of owning a Yaz RC, bought this card for me. Tons of sentimental value. Later it landed in a PSA 2 holder and there I thought it would stay, but I cracked it out to get it signed. Very, very happy with this one!



And this one is not only for my Yaz collection, but for my 74 Topps Sox team set too. It was a PSA 8 crackout. The Yaz makes 8 autos in my team set and I'm waiting to get back a Cepeda from a private signing that will make it 9.

I got one Yaz card signed for each of my sons as well and they selected which ones from their personal collections. One went with a Diamond King and the other with a 66 Topps. Both look great.

Yaz very well could be the best son of a Long Island potato farmer in the Hall of Fame.
