I might PSA it at some point

Rollie, this is a "New Acquisitions" thread. It's a very nice NM 7 Rookie of one of the greatest running backs in NFL history. Perhaps compliment them on the pick up, and then ask for an opinion on the card in your collection next time, or in a different thread.

You are interpreting something as negative 5hat was never implied by me.
Perhaps you don't need to control something at every turn .
I consider it a new acquisition because I didn't even remember I had it till 2 weeks ago lol

I took it as opportunity to communicate appreciation for a particular card. By implying I knew my card was worth less with a smiley face, means I wasn't trying to upstage him.

I don't just type "cool card dude"

I have to add more substance or subject matter.

Sorry, wasn't looking to do a negative thing

pariah1107 05-04-2016 09:55 PM

Congratulations on your pick up as well. Great card, enough said.

how many do you have you greedy greedster!:eek:

sockwell123 05-05-2016 08:44 AM

;-P. ... Only the 2. The 3 I bought as an upgrade from the one I had since 1999. However what was described as a ripple turned out worse than the description stated.

DBesse27 05-05-2016 10:20 PM

Recently picked this up, a HOF RC and a great upgrade for my Hannah master set.

Very sharp card -

I'm trying to fill in my 1950 Giants in mid-grade cards, and just added these to the 1951 set

I also have a small collection of season passes, this one to the official William T. Halloran - he was the field judge in the 1936 NFL Championship and continued as an official into the 1950s. I like that it was signed by Carl Storck.

There is a beauty to the beaters - and that's got it! Gotta love the back of that card, since it has a newspaper date of 1923 and they were not given the Four Horsemen moniker until 1924

New York Herald Tribune, 18 October 1924
Grantland Rice
Outlined against a blue-gray October sky, the Four Horsemen rode again. In dramatic lore they are known as Famine, Pestilence, Destruction and Death. These are only aliases. Their real names are Stuhldreher, Miller, Crowley and Layden. They formed the crest of the South Bend cyclone before which another fighting Army football team was swept over the precipice at the Polo Grounds yesterday afternoon as 55,000 spectators peered down on the bewildering panorama spread on the green plain below.

love that 1940 pass Mike !!! great

LuckyLarry 05-14-2016 12:35 PM

I attended another local card show today. One of the dealers (Eddie) who sets up at our regular show opened up a brick and mortar store and of course I want to visit and support. But it's way on the south side of Jacksonville and almost an hour drive for me. But today he had an in store card show, and needing some supplies anyway, it was time. All the guys set up I've seen before so nothing there, but I find Eddie, and compliment him on his great card store. The space is huge, giant screen TVs everywhere. I never buy anything from Eddie he just never has anything I need.

Anyway he says the magic words I haven't heard in years "I've got a couple monster boxes in the back I haven't gone through yet". Of course most is junk wax era stuff but I find over 100 cards to restock my doubles box mostly 1970 1971 Fleer World Series baseball cards. And somehow, stuck in the middle of all those cards was one of the three 1972 Topps football high numbered cards I need for my set #308 Earl Morrall:)

So today I picked up over 100 cards for my dupes box (some 63 Post and Jello baseball cards too), twelve 800 count storage boxes, twelve packs of 100 count soft sleeves, and a needed 1972 Topps hi number Earl Morrall for $48 plus I had to pay tax LOL!

Always fun to thumb through cardboard!

Nice examples of this card eBay BIN $40-$45 so I would place the "full book" price for this card at $2. The dealer probably did not even know what card he was placing in the .25c bin, all he saw was a torn up 1954 scoops card. Plus sometimes I do get "lucky" LOL!

Nice snag, Larry. Sometimes all of that diligence pays off with a find. And this is one of them.

A signed program by Don Steinbrunner (April 5, 1932–July 20, 1967) who was one of only two American professional football players to die in the Vietnam War.

Thanks for posting this Rev, the other player was Bob Kalsu and its appears neither had a regular football card. It was worth taking the time to google search these guys with Memorial Day closely approaching.

I thought this RPPC was interesting in that it is an integrated college team in 1909:

r.jpg[/IMG]

well,where did you get it and stuff?

any story behind the card about the players or history or anything?

I'm guessing Integrated is a loose term. Not by you but the actual views of a few of those guys or maybe just one of them in the pick.
They did make him stand on the edge.
thats a cool thing as an actual post card though?

were 1909 pics instantaneous? because no one is smiling :D

RollieFingers 05-25-2016 02:54 PM

I made a smaller version because I like it to put in other places.

except I think I'll separate the bottom

LuckyLarry 05-31-2016 11:39 AM

One of my OBC trading buddies sent me this card today. I need just one more (#4 Babe Parilli RC) to complete my 1951 Topps Magic set!

#70 Ed Dobrowolski is listed in the Standard Catalog as a "common" but I have been unable to find a card priced as such LOL. I guess all the Syracuse collectors keep the price bumped up? It appears that Ed played three years of college ball but didn't play with the pros.

Holy crap Larry! Do you have every set ever made? Every time I'm on here you're on the new acquisitions thread completing a set. It must be awesome to get cards everyday in the mail!

That 1951 Topps magic is tough in general isn't it? Congratulations and I'll look for your next pickup tomorrow.:D

Take care,

Just got this back from PSA. One of the cornerstones of my Hannah player collection:

http://i1199.photobucket.com/albums/...auto%20PSA.jpg

LuckyLarry 06-11-2016 01:10 PM

In todays mailbox, two 1952 Bowman Large hits via eBay purchase. I am still plugging away at my set, holding 128 of the 144 cards in the set or 88% complete.
#117 Short Print Pat O'donahue according to the Standard Catalog NM $225 shipping fees pushed the price over my 10% threshold and cost me $25 total. Pat was born in Eau Claire, Wisconsin don't we have a board participant who collects everything Eau Claire?
#127 Short Print Ollie Matson Rookie Card NM $400 shipped free and at the 10% goal, cost me $40. I think I wrote about Ollie before? Summer of 1952 he won two medals in the Olypmics, then won co-ROY NFL 1952. NFL HOF 1972. Later in life Ollie suffered from dementia due to CTE.

Nice Larry. Great Matson. I've always ranked that card high on the "most aesthetic" list of football cards and you got a nice example.

S_GERACE 06-12-2016 02:31 PM

Nice pickups Larry. I think that most people would rate the 1952 Bowman Large as the most attractive set of Football cards ever made.;)

LuckyLarry 06-13-2016 06:05 AM

John and Scott thanks for the encouragement the '52 Bowman Large and Small sets are beautiful and challenging to complete. But I am up to the task LOL!

Picked up a couple of Philadelphia Unitas cards ('64 & '65) and a 1955 Topps Benny Friedman. If you get the chance, read the book Passing Game by Murray Greenberg. It seems a shame but it appears that Friedman's abrasive personality kept him out of the HoF until well after his retirement and death. He was so good during his prime that Tim Mara purchased the Detroit Wolverines franchise just so he could obtain the rights to Friedman and put him on the Giants roster.

jefferyepayne 06-13-2016 05:44 PM

Great Friedman, Scott! He was the first great passer in the NFL. His 20 TD passes in 1929 are amazing given the era and shape of the ball back then. His season TD record wouldn't be broken until 1942. For perspective, Billy Kilmer and Joe Namath led the league in TD passes in 1972 with 19.

Great pickup.

Great cards guys. Speaking of 1972.. finally acquired this Larry Brown IA card i've been wanting for some time.

Finished the '58 set last month with 3 unremarkable cards, a very reasonable vintage set. The Brown rookie is a beater and needs an upgrade. Concentrating on finishing '62 Post (159/200), and continuing those darn '77 Mexicans (137/528). At my current rate, the '77 set may take 5 more years (minimum), and I'll probably cave on condition just to acquire some cards. Next to those 72 high numbers, it is one of the more challenging sets I have run across. Not impossible with unlimited funds, but not my situation. Best of luck and happy collecting, great to see the progress on your '72's :)

One of the few sets I've collected completely in the raw. The keyhole cards are not my favorite, but easy on the wallet. My set is G-VG/EX; with the exception of Unitas and Brown which are worse. I scanned these only for a template. Yes the bottoms are missing but I was looking for scuff/off coloring as is common in this issue, comparative decently centered cards, etc :

S_GERACE 06-15-2016 02:34 PM

Nice '58 set Ty. Yeah, I agree that the '58's are prone to surface wear and poor picture clarity (1957 also). Good luck w/ the '77 Mexican set.

Nice, sharp Larry Brown Shawn. Is the rest of your set in similar shape? I'm 3 cards short (all hi #'s of course).

sockwell123 06-15-2016 05:03 PM

yes sir. pretty much vgex- emxt range. I've just started on the high numbers so i have a long way to go..

Good luck with your last needed!

LuckyLarry 06-16-2016 04:59 PM

Todays mail included this eBay win 1950 Bowman #100 Sammy Baugh. This leaves me two cards short of the full set (still need #5 Y.A. Title RC and #6 Lou Groza RC).
Boy this is a nice example (for me), and still under 10% NM book even after shipping!
Sammy was a charter member of the NFL HOF class of 1963. After football (according to his son), Baugh derived far more pleasure from ranching than he ever had from football, saying that he enjoyed the game, but if he could live his life over again, he probably wouldn't play sports at all. Sammy lived a long life, and died in 2008 at the age of 94.

Nice pickups Larry & Robert!

I love the detail in the Baugh, right down to the gold stitching on his helmet.

To me, all of the Bowman Waterfield's look amazing. In the '51, I think the combination of the leather helmet, the cleats showing on the bottom and the sky coloring really make it a great looking card.

Congratulations guys!
