Always liked the art of that card, but you might want to double check Tony's last name ;)

jefferyepayne 07-28-2016 03:27 AM

Great card, Larry! With all of the all-time Packer greats, Canadeo sometimes gets lost in the shuffle but he was a terrific all around player. One of the few Packers to have his jersey number retired and of course he's in the HOF.

Thanks Ed! Nice registry sets - I like seeing what other collectors are working on - I think the majority of collectors use the registry for organization, display, fun, etc.

Mike, at first I saw 8 matchbooks. (I like how Nagurski shows up in the background of the Kopcha.) But, now I just see the dreaded "?"

Larry, nice Canadeo. I saw some footage of him run back a kickoff recently, but it was the end of his career. In his prime I think he was one of the first handful of 1000 yard rushers.

Same here Mike. Saw them initially, great Bears set! Congratulations. But, now I see "(-)"

I have to say that Google photos is a mystery to me - I checked if those were visible by looking at the page when I wasn't signed in and it displayed fine and tonight it's just little boxes - I've tried again putting the files in a different site for linking. sorry.

Great pick-ups Shawn! Really sharp Namath!

Mike, the Bears matchbooks look great now! I wasn't expecting the Johnsos and Masterson to look so familiar - those are the images National Chicle used too.

Thanks Ty!

I finished my 1950 Bowman set with #5 Y.A. Tittle RC. Last week eBay ran a 10X eBay "bucks" promotion, and I negotiated this card for $65 delivered. So with $6.50 in eBay "bucks" I'm into it for $58.50 or 14.62% NM book.

Nice pick-ups everyone! Today at our local monthly show I picked up a 1951 Bowman #20 Tom Landry RC which leaves just ONE card to complete my set!
The Landry RC "books" for $365 in NM, and I got it for $35 just under my ten percent target.

I own a ton of those McDonald's scratch offs. A signed Rice is tremendous!!

pariah1107 08-25-2016 01:16 PM

Picked up three more 1977 Mexicans this month, up to 143/528. The last player to wear my favorite number #00, Ken Burrough. Only two more players to finish my Steel Curtain of the set (Lambert & Greenwood) with this addition of the hard-hitting Mel Blount. And a very solid defensive lineman, Julius Adams, who I was very happy to see get in a Super Bowl with the Pats (well past his prime), though it was unfortunately a beat down at the hands of the punishing Bears 46 D.

One of the many interesting aspects of this set is the use of the Spanish masculine ending "os", and feminine "as", and the teams they were ascribed to "petroleros", "acereros", v. the "patriotas" in this example. So much to uncover in this set....

Ty, you had to know I would post that I love your latest pickups ;)

DBesse27 08-27-2016 12:23 PM

Just got back from vacation. I go to the same place every August and there's a card shop nearby, run by an older guy out of his house. My boys and I always visit and my favorite thing to do is sift through his "M.A.S.H. Box." It's full of beaters, but priced accordingly, with lots of star power. It's a fun escape from graded cards, which are mostly what I collect these days. Was thrilled to pick up the '52 Bowman Large HOF RC below. As I mentioned, it's beat to hell, but that's probably the only condition in which I could afford one, and I think it still has great color. Only $10.

http://i1199.photobucket.com/albums/...narik%20RC.jpg

LuckyLarry 08-27-2016 01:07 PM

Nice pick up Dan! That card is on my wantlist too, and $10 is a great bargain!
Larry

DBesse27 08-27-2016 01:11 PM

Thanks Larry. It's outside my normal wheelhouse (Cappelletti and Hannah cards), but it's a HOF RC and a short print, from an iconic set. Thought it was too good to pass up. Picked up a nice '77 Too Tall Jones for a buck as well.

pariah1107 08-27-2016 05:51 PM

Great Bednarik card for a very reasonable price. I'd like to have a brick & mortar store nearby for the off-chance of a find like that.

DBesse27 09-01-2016 09:30 AM

Hey guys, turns out the Bednarik isn't his RC, not even close. A bunch of you guys (Jeff!) must know that. Why didn't anybody correct me? The sticker on the top loader said RC and I took it as fact. Turns out that between Topps Magic, Leaf and Bowman he had 5 earlier cards. I knew about the Leaf and forgot. My bad. It's still an SP, still an iconic card, and still a bargain (to me) at $10. But not an RC.

Any Bednarik is a rookie card to me! :) Nice pickup and congrats.

Picked up three early 80's football sets (81-82-83) to add to the run. A huge shout-out and thank you to board member Cory (AddieJoss), a pleasure doing business. Exactly as advertised. The top tier HOF's cards were a welcome surprise; many in NM-MT condition with superb centering. An overall, great transaction :)

Good lookin cards. Are you going after the 72 set? Or Steeler cards.

I would love to put the set together, it was one of my favorites as a kid buying packs, but it would be a long term thing. I figured I would start with Steelers, and see how it goes.

I love that Pro Action subset. Those are two nice examples, congrats. I was working on just that subset when I ran across an 80% complete low numbers '72 set for a good price, so filling those in as well as a complete extra Pro Action set. I get that way with stuff I like haha. I might have a few in triplicate if you have a list, just pm me if so. Thanks for showing those.

Thanks Rob. I tried to find copies in good shape, and I wasn't to worried about them being OC, since they aren't going anywhere. I will keep you in mind when I get my checklist together.

DBesse27 09-12-2016 07:25 PM

Got a unique group of items in the mail today, a group of NFL transparency slides of the New England Patriots. These slides were produced by the NFL for use in television broadcasts. They were issued from 1968-88 and this first group is from 1973, meaning this is a Hannah pre-RC of sorts, produced a year before his Topps RC. The Tippett is a pre-RC as well, from 1982, 2 years before his RC.

http://i1199.photobucket.com/albums/...s%20slides.jpghttp://i1199.photobucket.com/albums/...ah%20slide.jpg
http://i1199.photobucket.com/albums/...tt%20slide.jpg

The seller was very knowledgeable about dating these, and this is an excerpt of his email regarding the Tippett being an 82:

1983s had plastic frame & 1984-88 were not numbered but used uniform numbers on the slides. 88 was last year of issue.

pariah1107 09-13-2016 05:02 PM

Very interesting Dan. Were these issued for every team, or was this a regional, Boston area newspaper collection? Slides are overlooked as collectibles IMO. Another great Hannah ;)

DBesse27 09-13-2016 05:14 PM

Thanks. These were issued by the league for 21 years, with players from all teams. Each year's "set" includes hundreds of slides. I'm stoked on the Hannah and Tippett pre-RCs

LuckyLarry 09-14-2016 05:45 AM

Those are pretty neat Dan.

pariah1107 09-17-2016 01:14 PM

Here are my most recent 1977 Topps Mexican pick-ups. Up to 147 of 528.

The OJ makes me incredibly uncomfortable, however comparably graded SGC & BVG '77's go for nearly 50% the cost of a PSA in this set. Seems to be some registry envy. Strange, especially considering the other two cards, both PSA graded, were improperly labeled as "1977 Topps", though they are obviously "1977 Topps Mexican". Not sure why PSA is considered the de facto experts on such things when they make bone-headed mistakes such as these. There were actually four incorrectly labeled Mexicans in the recent pick-up, all sequentially graded. Thank you Jeremy for the recent additions :)

Oops, I criticized a TPG without my name in the post, Ty Phelan

As I try to close out my '52 Bowman football sets, pick-ups are slowing way down LOL! But when an eBay Bucks 10X promotion kicked in, I did a little shopping:)

1952 Bowman Large #10 (SP) Chuck Bednarik Standard Catalog values $300 NM this card was $46.50 shipped or 15.5% book.

1952 Bowman Small #142 Tom Landry $325 NM value card cost me $36.50 shipped or 11.2% book.

Bulldog and Bednarik - pretty tough guys on the field. I don't get that many cards because much of my interest pre-dates these sets, but I did pick up a trio of programs that are right in my wheel-house.

Sweet Staten Island Stapletons programs! They played the Giants tough on Thanksgiving Day games (1929-32). I really wish the current NFL would highlight these early rivalries, when pertinent, such as during a Jets v. Giants game.

Two arrivals today via eBay, as I try to finish my Bowman sets. Ten cards left to complete 1952 Bowman Large set!

Bowman Large #36 John Hancock RC this card is not listed as an SP, yet it "books" for $400 in NM condition? It does not appear that John played in the NFL either. Cost me $67.50 delivered (after eBay Bucks 10X) or 17% book.

Bowman Large #30 Sammy Baugh also "books" for $400 cost me $54 (after eBay Bucks 10X) or 13.5% book.

Tough set!
