Got some of those in the pack still from when I was a kid. Need to see if I have the Payton. Seemed there was an Earl Campbell too. Thanks for bringing back the memories.

After hesitating many times over the last couple years, I finally acquired a graded Jim Brown Rookie to replace my set filler. Very pleased :)

Thanks guys. Nice to cross the Brown RC off the must have list. Happy collecting all!

Two iconic football cards! Congrats, guys.

I'm usually on the baseball side of things but this one has been on my want list for quite some time. Beyond excited to add this one to my collection. Best looking 2.5 I think I've ever seen. The mark by his face is on the slab so I'll send it out for a reholder.

revmoran 01-18-2017 12:04 PM

If that was a lesser value card it would never be a 2.5 - it's a beautiful card and if you were going to collect 12 football cards total that would be one of the twelve for sure - brilliant!

sockwell123 01-19-2017 08:34 PM

Very nice card!

Blackie 01-21-2017 04:19 PM

Super nice Joe Willie rookie card! I just picked one up too and love it

1-upper.

Just kidding. Great card, congrats.

Blackie 01-21-2017 06:35 PM

Lol... not at all. Just also very happy to have one.

pariah1107 01-25-2017 01:37 PM

Nice Broadway Joe's!

I was hoping the Steelers would have played better last weekend, but here's a couple Steel Curtain era HOF's from the 1977 Topps Mexican set (up to 154/528):

I am drawing a blank as to why this is only a 2.5 grade. Have you gone over it with a loop? How is the back? Love the card.

There's light "spider" creasing from the left border through his hands and the football - it barely shows in the scan on the tips of his fingers through the football. The top/bottom centering is obviously off a little...and the registration is slightly off (notice the green ink on the right border). But I like it more than most 4's I come across.

Because Jim Brown scared the crap out of your scanner. In fact, from now on it should be a forum policy that Jim Brown cards are posted at that size in order to appreciate him as a powerhouse.

I've been out in California for the past 35+ days babysitting grandkids LOL! This AM I stopped by the USPO to pick up my mail. Here is one card that was waiting for me. 1968 Milton Bradley Joe Namath. You can see the "burlap" from the baseball cards at the top of the card.

This eBay purchase was not listed as a "Milton Bradley' card, it was listed as a Topps card. Including shipping this "collector grade" card cost me $23.48 I don't have a clue what the "book" price is. I was just happy to get it!

1952 Bowman small, these three hits take me down to TWO cards left for my set!
#33 Fred Cone NM "book" $45 paid $7
#106 Raymond Pelfrey NM "book" $50 paid $6
#135 Gene Ronzani NM "book" $50 paid $10

Isn't that a 1967 Milton Bradley card?

I am working on the 1967 Topps Set and needless to say the Namath card is one I do need to eventually pick up.

I thought the MB cards were a 1968 issue even though the FB cards are the 1967 design?

I don't know what they are called LOL! They are not mentioned in the Standard Catalog (I just checked). Included in the Milton Bradley "Win A Card" game were 1967 designed football cards, 1968 baseball cards, and 1968 Hot Rod cards (copied from a 1964 release).

Two 1952 Bowman Large eBay pickups arrived today. I need SEVEN more cards to complete my set!
#72 John Schweder RC SP listed in the Standard Catalog for $650 in NM and I paid $107 delivered or 16.5% "book".
#108 Hubert Johnston SP listed in the Standard Catalog for $750 in NM and I paid $83 delivered or 11% of "book".

Another card marked off 1952 Bowman Large #63 Charley Conerly SP, I need six more to complete my set! NM "book" price is $550 this one cost $81.44 shipped, but I purchased it during a recent 10% eBay bucks program. So I earned $7.88 eBay bucks, pushing my purchase price down to $73.56 or 13.3% book price.

Another great Hall of Famer SP, you are a collecting machine, Larry!

Progress made on the 1977 Topps Mexican Set this month in the much maligned category of CHECKLIST cards. Here's an uncut two card "strip" of Card #'s 204 & 256 (Bears) of the '77 Mexican set. I have not seen any cards from an uncut sheet in this set before, but can confirm those darn perforations ARE factory.

http://i345.photobucket.com/albums/p...psduwklasl.jpg

LuckyLarry 02-27-2017 04:12 PM

Thanks Ty! I don't know anything about that 1977 Topps Mexican set except what I am reading here in the Standard Catalog. Going by the "pricing" these must be pretty rare!

For me another hit 1952 Bowman Large #14 Paul Brown RC. FIVE more needed to complete my set. This was a "BattersBox" eBay pickup during the recent 10X eBay bucks promotion. Cost me $35.25 free shipping minus $3.52 eBay bucks total $31.73. The Standard Catalog NM "value" $250, so I am at 12.6% full book.

I just noticed the ink finger print on Paul Browns shirt. Thought it was kind of weird. Then I looked on eBay, and there are several others that have this finger-print, and some of the card do not?

Paul Brown thumb print -

Yes, there are versions with or without this print flaw. I'm not sure which one is more common, though.

Frito Lay John Hannah
 
I have just joined Net54, went right to the Football Forum, went through everything, lots of amazing stuff! But I don't know if there is anything more awesome or incredible than the John Hannah Frito Lay by DBesse27, complete with dip in his mouth and a can of Copenhagen on his helmet. I did a little search for this, but could not find one. I will keep looking. Happy Collecting!

It came in a lot with these:

#77 is Tom Neville, 1976. The Grogan might be from the 76 set, or the 1977-78 set.

#86 is 4x Pro Bowler Stanley Morgan, 1977-78 set. Number 81 is TE Russ Francis, 1976

LuckyLarry 03-13-2017 03:35 PM

Another 1952 Bowman Large arrived today. I need just four more cards for my set! Gino Marchetti NFL HOF 1972. Never played for the Redskins, but I guess the previous owner thought so (penciled in on the back). Cost after shipping and eBay bucks promotion $34.78 around 13.9% NM "book".
Hope everyone is doing great out there!

Slowly chipping away at my Sammy Baugh autographed run. I also picked his 48 Bowman and 52 Bowman (small)...both signed from a fellow board member. I just need to get some good scans. Also I haven't seen another 49 Leaf but plenty of the 48 Leafs, even though that's the only one I need to complete.

Finally I have something new to post! My shrinking want-list makes the hits few and far between, and my 10% threshold is thrown out the window! I just want to mark something off my list. These two '63 Fleer cards takes me down to just seven cards left!
#15 Don Maynard NM "book" is $40 I paid $13.20 shipped (33% book)
#64 SP Bob Dougherty NM "book" is $75 I paid $23.20 (31% book)

Thanks Jeff, I'm busy completing my 50s 60s 70s non-sports sets and having a ball with that (and not having to spend a fortune). I'm also working on another football project as well. Hope to meet you at the National this year!

1948 Leaf #1 card Sid Luckman RC arrived today. The Standard Catalog NM "value" is $500, this low grade card cost me $31 delivered or 6.2% book

Friday morning when I checked my email, I had notices from eBay that some of the cards I watch had new listings. Three of the four cards I need for my 1952 Bowman Large set had been added! When I checked the listings, all were from Deans Cards. And if you didn't know, this seller takes a lot of heat for listing very over-priced cards.

Months ago, I abandoned my attempt to get these cards at 10% book or less, and moved my threshold to 20% book price or less. Two of the three cards met this criteria, and the third was close enough for me! I checked and double checked my math, believe me!

Normally I would have watched these three cards, and then pulled the trigger when I got an eBay bucks promotion. Not for these cards, I bought them then and there! I need just one more card to complete my 1952 Bowman Large set, #29 Hugh McElhenny RC ("books" NM $250)

First up #99 Joe Stydahar RC and SP. The Standard Catalog NM "value" is $950 and the Buy It Now price $165 or 17.3% book.

http://i176.photobucket.com/albums/w...utput_a4f.jpeg

http://i176.photobucket.com/albums/w...utput_a51.jpeg

Next card #108 Hubert Johnson RC "value" $750 NM BIN price $200 or 26.6% book.

http://i176.photobucket.com/albums/w...utput_a4c.jpeg

http://i176.photobucket.com/albums/w...utput_a4e.jpeg

Now #135 Gene Ronzani RC and SP "books" $900 NM and the BIN price was $150 or 16.6% book.

http://i176.photobucket.com/albums/w...utput_a49.jpeg

http://i176.photobucket.com/albums/w...utput_a4b.jpeg

I purchased these cards Friday, and they attempted to deliver yesterday (Monday) but I was not home to sign for them. I picked them up just now from the US Post Office. Cards were shipped for free. Total spent (on these little pieces of worthless cardboard) $515 compared to NM "value" $2,600 is 19.8%.

Larry

jefferyepayne 05-02-2017 02:45 PM

Those are three REALLY tough cards, Larry, so congrats for snagging them. People underestimate how difficult the super SPs are in this set.

Good job.
