brown rookie
 
nice Brown rookie.. i picked one up last summer ungraded.. corners aren't near as nice.. prolly grade about 3.5-4 i'd assume.

bcbgcbrcb 01-20-2015 04:23 AM

Thanks, guys. I don't do too much in football, figured a nice Brown RC would be a good start......

Cannot do better than that: Brown is the Michael Jordan of FB as far as I am concerned. I finished my run of regular issue Topps/Fleer/Phila. Brown cards recently. Need a 1961 IA to finish the regular issue Topps run as far as I want to take it. Still working on the Kahn's, team issues, and Carlings [though at their sizes I may not bother].

I took a road trip (6.5 hour drive) to the Raleigh NC card show this weekend, and came away with a bunch of football cards including these low grade beauties. These are all tough short prints (numbers divisable by 3) NM condition can go for $100.

#51 Cowhig #39 Thomas #105 Cifers #93 Sears
Found in Kurt Turdots "bargain box" $5 each but I had to give $15 (maybe $17) for Conerly RC but I was glad to get them!

1964 Philadelphia #17 Mike Ditka (another $5 bargain box pick) finished my set!
1966 Philadelphia #38 Gale Sayers RC. I had to pay a bit more than $5 for this off grade example but I was glad to get it!
I just need FOUR more cards to complete the 64-65-66-67 Philadelphia sets!

Gonna have to snag the Sayers and Butkus rookies somewhere down the line. I don't normally buy graded cards unless they're listed cheap.. just picked this one up to help my '59 set along..

Loving the collector's grade stuff! Right where I live...

jefferyepayne 02-07-2015 07:13 PM

Picked this Exhibit card up this week in an auction. Postcard backs for these exhibits are really tough.

I have been getting rid of my football cards to streamline my collection, but when I saw this card. I just had to have it.

somewhere i heard or read that's his cadillac in the background of that photo. i think several of the players are pictured with it.

what are you streamlining to.. if i may ask? i've got a lot of cards left over from packs.. i just started making sets..and boxes with leftovers and doubles.

Baseball and specifically Detroit Tigers. Almost done with post war. My side ventures are 1952 and 1958 baseball sets in low grade and 1967 in high grade.

sockwell123 02-08-2015 07:52 PM

cool beans. I'm wanting to put a '58 all star "set" together. i've got one card.. the Warren Spahn. Will take me a long time as I will just pick em up if i can get em cheap..

Still chipping away at the Chicle set. I'm down to needing just these:

#1 DUTCH CLARK
#21 CLIFF MONTGOMERY
#22 SHIPWRECK KELLEY
#24 CLARKE HINKLE
#25 DALE BURNETT
#26 JOHN Dell ISOLA
#33 ERNIE SMITH

I'm really happy with my new Masterson despite a stray red line near his throwing wrist, but as you can see, the Macmurdo has some issues. It's never ideal when you have to look at another card to figure out what the back of your card says :)

speaking of stray lines.. i've seen quite a few '57 Topps Y.A. Tittle cards with a red dot on the left border. Printing isssue, ink?.. may be me.. or nothing.. just a general wondering. Baseballist has the similar on page 1

Great pickups, guys!

brewing - heading in the wrong direction if you're culling out your football cards! Stick around and check out some of the stuff posted in this Forum and maybe you'll change your mind:D That Jim Brown is a killer!

Love the Chicle, 1957, '55 AA sets so these cards are great!

sockwell123 02-12-2015 07:19 PM

Totally agree. I would like to get into the pre-war and post 50's for sure.. maybe one day when i've finally caught up on the 70's.

picked this up.. It's not a card but a signed print from Ike Rodriguez.. maybe one day i'll be able to hang it somewhere when i've got my cave.

PowderedH2O 02-17-2015 12:18 PM

I am continuously amazed at the prices on vintage football HOFers. It is not unusual at all to be able to pick up guys like Marchetti, Berry, Perry, Tunnell, Lane, Lary, and dozens more for common prices or very close to it. For example, this weekend I picked up a 1957 Marchetti in Vg-ex for $1.36. I got a 1963 Marchetti for 99 cents. I snagged a 1966 Keith Lincoln in Vg-Ex/Ex for 6 cents plus 25 cents shipping. I can remember hearing how football cards were underpriced in the 1980's. Well, as I am closing in on completing my sets for the 50's and 60's, I want the good times to keep rolling.

I hear you, Sam! It amazes me how reasonably priced most 50s and 60s football is compared to baseball. High grade HOF RC are the exception due to the "registry people". I believe football is still significantly undervalued and has a lot of upside.

Nice AA cards! I have the Hein and the Hutson and when I bought the Hutson, it was labeled as a "short print". Anyone know the story behind that? Something with the sheet layout?

LuckyLarry 03-13-2015 03:31 PM

This card arrives today via eBay, leaving just eight cards left to complete the 1961 Fleer set.

I'm very excited to add this to my central Washington sports collection... 1910 Grandview, Washington Football team RPPC. I was initially skeptical since Grandview was founded in 1909 with only 320 residents in 1910, but found the following link to a live action shot of a Grandview football game. Almost positive this team photo was taken by well-regarded photographer Asahel Curtis, who wrote the definitive History of Grandview. They sure look like the same uniforms: http://www.washingtonruralheritage.o...show/30/rec/24

2 new ones for my signed HOF'er collection. Down to 22 needed to complete. That said, only cards, only players/coaches & financially feasible (for me). It's been a lot of fun hunting them down.

Today at my monthly local show, I finished my 1963 Topps set:) This certain dealer is always set up, and none of his cards have price tags on them. When he gives you a price, it's always high, and I've never bought a card from him. But in his showcase I see the card I have been looking for, a 1963 Topps #96 Ray Nitschke RC and he gives me a price of $15 which I accept.
