Default 2010 National Pickups,Pics, and Post

Today has been a great day. I was able to fulfill a few very sought after cards for some board members who were not able to make it. Hope to close some more deals tomorrow for more. Had a great dinner with some fellow 54'ers, my Dad, and a smokin' hot waitress named Brittany

I was able to complete 50% of my Dads 69 Topps set wishlist today.

Got to meet Leon, Scott B, Buckler, Steve, Tony, Larry and so many more. Only made it up 3 rows today. Man I got alot to go. I will post updates and pics as soon as I get the camera downloaded.

Please feel free to share comments and pics from the National guys. Lets try to bring it to the guys/gals unable to attend this year.

Have a great night everybody

Looking forward to the pics Andrew...I don't think anyone posted a single pic from last years National on the card side (Carlton always does a fantastic job on the memorabilia side)...the year before that someone (Jerry S?) posted a ton of pics and videos.

Kind of OT, but I had a great time today at the Edgar Allan Poe memorial offering condolences.

I was unaware that he had passed. My prayers and condolences to any remaining relatives and anyone who even resembles him.

I understand he was a very good writer, with exceptionally strong spelling skills. I think he and Barry would have hit it off in grand fashion...

Default great news Andrew!

congrats on the pickups, but given your lead in, I have to know,...did they include Brittany?

and a great thing to hear that you have made acquisitions on behalf of others...you're like a Net54 commando hit-man or something and some such! keep it up

I've picked up some minor cards thus far. I haven't seen anything for sale which has blown me away and the prices for the most part are ridiculously high. Nicest card I saw for sale was a Rose PC Wagner in great shape (but overpriced by about 5K). Dan McKee has some incredible cards (including a J=K Wagner) but I was a little disappointed by both his table location (inside the Men's room) and his refusal to wear the Net 54 pin. SGC has Pat Preece's collection laid out and I'd say that it is the most impressive 19th century collection (or any other century) that I've ever seen.

Some of the nicest cards for sale are packaged as as full sets so you can't break them up and that drives me crazy.

All in all it's a bit overwhelming and my feet and back hurt but at least I'm not 100 lbs overweight and stuffed into a major league baseball jersey so I've got that going for me.

Hi Guys,

Not on the boards very often due to time constraints but I am in Baltimore and had a great time so far with my wife and 9 year old daughter. I was at the show when the opening bell sounded, it was like being at the starting line of the Daytona 500. Very fortunate my daughter didn't get trampled !

Anyway as far as pickups we were running through the booths to see what was available so I probably missed a lot but the list so far includes a High end complete set of 1939 R303-B Premiums with a Dimaggio, Foxx & Greenberg that are among the finest I have ever seen in this very condition sensitive issue. Next a Super High Grade 1956 Topps Pin complete set including Stobbs & Diering which is near impossible as well. Some of these I'm sure are among the finest that will ever be graded when I submit them. Next was $3,000.00 worth of 1910 P2 Sweet Caporal Pins and 1932 PR2 Orbit Pins which had a Cobb that has a good shot at a PSA 9, it is certainly an 8. These pins were blazers and I basically cherry picked what was probably an entire set that had not been dragged around the shows yet. This has only happened to me once before about 5 years ago in Chicago The dealer couldn't keep up with me since I was pulling pins out of the plastic sleeves faster than he could add them up. Also I picked up an assorted group which included 1947 Exhibit, 1948 HOF Exhibit & 1961 Wrigley Field Exhibit cards, 2 -1930 Lou Gehrig Cracker Jack Pins, 1934 Babe Ruth Quaker Oats Pin, 1956 Yellow Basepath Stan Musial Pin, Khedival White Border Maurice Sayers (never see a White Border Khedival Boxing Card before), 1914 Polo Grounds Ed Walsh, Rube Marquard-2, Nap Lajoie & Eddie Collins -2, 1911 Tom Barker Game Ed Walsh, T206 Piedmont Tom Jones - St. Louis which is a minimum a PSA 7 with a shot at an 8. Got this from a reputable dealer and is the nicest T206 I have ever seen as far as condition. I typically stay away from these type of items due to alterations but I'm hoping this is a Home Run, it is that nice. Also 4 - 1969 Kahn's Wieners which have great shots at PSA 9's and 8 - 1950 Callahan HOF Blazers including Cy Young, Honus Wagner and a tough Paul Waner variation.

All the above pickups are at the high end range of what you would typically be able to find since obviously these are more difficult. Was a very impressive 4 hours worth of treasure hunting. I will be at the show Thursday, Friday and Saturday as well, which will be much more relaxing. Last night was like a fire drill but really paid off big time.

Hope all of you enjoy the show and our great hobby. Most of these items will be in our American Sports Antiquities auctions in about a month on E-Bay ID - (Morgan118).
