Thank you Al. I also propose a rule that you can show your Heater from Van Meter any day you want.

Dale---your Lopat with the red dot is a red back, right ?. My red back also has such a dot, but I see the one Bob posted does not. So you have added one to the H&S list :). Now, do I need a red back without the dot ? :(

That is correct, Al, it is a red back.

Like you, this thread could get expensive as I realized a couple pgs ago, that I didn't own a red back Sain card. :o

Bob, I can't wait another 8 months or so to find out, are your high numbers as nice as your low numbers?

High numbers? Crap, I thought the '52 set was only eighty cards! :eek:

Okay, you got me curious as to whether this was true or not, so I did some spreadsheet stuff (Al says I'm a spreadsheet guy).

1-80: 6.382716
81-250: 6.670588
251-310: 6.52459
311-407: 6.587629

Pretty consistent, although now the OCD in me wants to upgrade until each of them is 6.670588. Sigh. :(

My set is pretty consistent as well, but if it was graded, the numbers would be a little lower. Based on your numbers, we're currently seeing the worst part of your set.:eek:

Bob is a spreadsheet guy, and his basement is sort of like a museum, albeit a chaotic one

Oh, I can't believe you are calling me out. I just wanted to put up one card that might make the grade for your set.

Your card is definitely nicer than any card in my set.

That might be my best one, I didn't want to let my spotty internet (I am sticking to that story) keep me from showing it, no matter how much heat I had to take. Good thing I don't have a dog.

Hey, a card I actually have scanned! Gonna be another week or so until I can play again unless I get motivated to scan over the weekend.

And a Preacher for Friday.

Edit: Meant to add this little tidbit. While searching/looking at cards, I noticed Joe Page is the only card in the whole set who has his printed name beside/to the left of his signature. All other's names are stacked upon one another, but a few, in Frank Overmine, Charley Maxwell and Connie Marrero have their signature's above their printed name.

I had noticed there is a difference in the font size used for many of the names but not the location. Other players with very short names like Page are not done the way his name was so he is unique for some reason.

I'm not sure how other sets compare but the 52 Topps set is a set that just keeps on giving with anomalies, quirks and variations.

Just when one thinks there isn't anything new that could possibly come up about them all these years later, something always does it seems. :cool:

Given that I own 3 '52 topps cards and I missed Andy Pafko day, I've been waiting for this. Absolutely love this Preacher card. The colors are incredible. This is some set. I'll be back on Willie Mays day in 195 days or so....

Nice Roe. Just curious how you ended up with only those 3 1952 Topps cards.

I'm curious about the Pafko/Roe/Mays relationship as well. I guess they're all Dodgers (except Mays), all have names which connote religiosity (except Mays and Pafko), and all were born the last week in February (except for Mays). :rolleyes:

Kutcher55 03-19-2021 03:14 PM

I collect Brooklyn Dodger cards a bit. The first time I laid eyes on the '52 Topps Preacher Roe I wanted to have it. I just think it's a spectacular looking card. As far as Willie Mays goes, I always thought the '52 Topps Mays was one of the most beautiful cards in existence. I started ratcheting up my game toward the end of last year and got super lucky and stumbled into a PSA 2 Mays, well centered, in November in one of those "deal or no deal" Facebook forums and got a ridiculous deal. The card has basically quadrupled in value since then, which is awesome, but I don't see myself selling it.

I bought a Pafko SGC 2.5 early in my return to collecting. It's just such an "i-word card" and I was surprised that a decent looking copy could be had for a couple of hundred bucks. This card seemed so unattainable when I was a kid.

There are other '52s I'd love to own. Mantle for one, lol. Peewee Reese is another. Jackie Robinson would be very nice. But two of those three cards are pretty much unattainable for my budget and my focus is on completing the '41 Playball set these days.

I guess it goes without saying that the '52 Topps set is amazing, both in terms of design and historic significance. Nice thread.
