Cool Senna pick-up, David. Never expected to see that in this thread. The racing thread on the main board could always use some more contributors.

I just went through that thread. Nice work picking up the 1972 STP Richard Petty.

I purchased two boxes of the 1986 Panini Supersport and had no clue who Senna was. I saw a few sales a year or so ago of the sticker and thought I should check and see if I had any and if so send one in. I was really hoping to get a PSA 9 on it and was very pleased with the result.

He also has a sticker in the 1988 set and I am just waiting on a PSA special to send in the stickers I think are worth grading from the set I bought and he was one of them.

If there are any other drivers in either Panini set that you know of that might be worth something graded let me know.

Thanks for the nice words on the Petty. After not seeing any '72 Petty cards on eBay in a couple years, there have actually been three or four more 1972 Petty STP cards that have shown up on ebay since I won that one. Lorenzen with car is really the legendary rarity in that set, although Bobby Allison is tough as well. Even a couple Lorenzen with car cards have shown up on eBay in recent months after some veteran STP collectors being unable to find a single example of the card over the course of several decades. I currently own nine of the 11 cards in the '72 STP set.

The owner of the only complete '72 STP set in the PSA registry has broken up his set in recent months. I really kick myself for not putting in a bigger snipe on the Allison card when it was auctioned off a couple months ago. Like you with wrestling cards, I like collecting racing because there are only a few individual cards that sell for more than $500 (although it does make me throw up in my mouth a little bit to see some Danica Patrick autograph cards approach that figure).

I am not real familiar with other cards in the Panini set. Most of my knowledge is on the stock car sets/major cards or American open wheel sets.

Mario Andretti's rookie card from the 1969 Panini Campioni Dello Sport set may be something you would be interested in. There is both a 1969 and 1970 version of the card. Obviously, the 1969 card would be the one to pursue. Both versions also have a "regular" back and a more rare "Valida" back. The 1969 version of the card is No. 117 (the 1970 card is No. 56 in that set). A Panini 1969 Mario Andretti is not hard to find, but it can take a while to find a PSA 9 (there are six of them in the population report and no PSA 10s) at auction instead of an overpriced BIN.

I really like that 1972 Set. I wonder what would make the guy break up his set. I remember talking one night with Logan and checking out some of the more desired Nascar sets and that guy had a killer set.

I haven't gotten into the older boxing or Panini. Just the 1986 and 1988. Admittedly the reason I was asking was hoping to find a hidden treasure in my collection! I love taking something that is worthless to me and making it have value. I did see a PSA 9 of Senna sold for $125 so spending $7 bucks to see what it would grade was worth it. Not sure if my copy will garner that but certainly a good sign.

Thanks for the response.

No problem. I like the 1972 set myself. It is not as overproduced as the late 1980s MAXX sets. None of the cards are common in the '72 STP set, although some of the lesser drivers are fairly easy to find. One of the great mysteries of the '72 STP set is why there is not a David Pearson card in the set. Pearson was series champion in 1966, 1968, and 1969 and seemingly would have been an obvious choice for inclusion. In addition, the set does not include 1970 NASCAR champion Bobby Isaac.

I didn't have time earlier to expand on Senna. I know you said you weren't familiar with him. Senna is always in the conversation whenever the topic of greatest Formula One driver of all-time comes up. He is frequently ranked first on such lists and almost never outside the top three. The best way for me to describe the impact of Ayrton Senna is by saying that his death was exactly as shocking for Europeans, South Americans and international race fans as Dale Earnhardt's death was for race fans in this country. Outside North America, Formula One is king when it comes to racing.

http://f1greatestdrivers.autosport.com/?driver=1

ESPN Classic occasionally shows the 2010 British documentary titled simply "Senna." It is a fascinating film that delves into his intense rivalry/hatred for French driver Alain Prost, Senna's near-mythic stature in his native Brazil, Senna's aggressive style that won him few friends on the track and the shock of his 1994 death. Senna was 34 years old when he was killed after being hit in the head by a piece of suspension at Imola (Italy). His 41 career Formula One wins currently rank fifth all-time. He was the second winningest driver in F1 history at the time of his death (behind only Prost).

The link above describes Senna's relationship with Prost as "mutual contempt," and is an accurate characterization. Following Senna's death, Prost agreed to take a seat on the board of the charitable foundation founded by Senna shortly before his death. The foundation largely tries to improve educational opportunities in Senna's native Brazil.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Senna_(film)

Little-known Austrian driver Roland Ratzenberger had died in a practice crash just one day before Senna's fatal accident. The "Senna" film shows Senna watching a replay of Ratzenberger's crash and wincing when he saw the impact. Senna expected to win the race the following day, and was leading the race at the time of his fatal crash. After Senna's death, it was revealed that he was carrying an Austrian flag with him in the cockpit that he planned to unfurl as a tribute to Ratzenberger after the race. Following the tragic weekend at Imola, F1 then went 20 years before losing another driver.

Photobucket ruined my threads.

I just tested out uploading a jpeg and I figured it out so I will be adding pics again.

I just got this Captain Redkneck this weekend. There are no 10's so far. This is my second 9.

Ken Patera was so cool. By far my favorite wrestler I met at Wrestlecon earlier this year. A nice high grade copy to add to my collection.
