Default Test - post a card you have owned a longtime

I put the over-under at 3 posts before some asshole hijacks this thread and starts spewing anger, throwing insults at someone, or mentions pwcc/psa antics.
I hope I am wrong.

This was one of the first cards I acquired when I got back into collecting, and I still own it. Probably won’t part with it for a long time.

Post a card you have owned a longtime and plan on owning a longtime still.

I've certainly been called an asshole before, but ain't gonna hijack anything here!

This killed me about 15 years ago to find a way to spend something around $1,600 for this card. Damn glad I figured it out, and don't plan on letting go of it!

I've got other Ruth cards now, but you never forget your first.

Nice cards so far.

I love this card. Boldest ink I've seen on a Uzit.

Got this Wajo when I was a young teenager over 15 years ago. Was my second T206, but was the one that really got me hooked. I have many “cooler” cards. But this one will always be special for me

This one I'll hopefully be holding on to for a while. Much nicer than my poor scan shows.

Good thread. Mostly into pre-war but this is one of my all time favs from when my dad was a kid.

This is my first T206, and probably first prewar card. Bought either late 1977 or early 78. It's worse than it looks, the whole upper left corner is taped on as it was only hanging on by a little bit. But it's a Polar Bear, and was incredibly cheap...…….20 cents.

First prewar card I ever bought, maybe 1979 or so, it's what sent me down this crazy road I'm on. I still have it. They say you can't take it with you? I'm taking this one with me.

-Al

ETA I guess Photobucket is watermarking all my images now because I don't pay a fee. Sorry about that.

If this is a longevity contest, I'm probably the winner

I pulled these cards out of BOND BREAD packages in the Summer/Fall of 1947. I have the complete set 0f 48 cards, so the 1st one may be any one
of these shown here (or any one of the other 42 cards in this set). It was 72 years ago, and I cannot remember which BB player was the first.

At least until Ted Z shows something he got from a 1 cent pack back in the day, which will totally bounce me from the cheap end spot.

Anyone buy a Wagner or something as their first card?

When I was in college my roommate showed me this card and explained what it was (my collecting experience had been limited to Garbage Pail Kids and 89 Score and Pro Set football cards as a kid), I was so fascinated and have been hooked ever since.

He actually gave it to me earlier this year when I was in Dallas for Leon's show, so have not had it long but it's the card that started it all for me.

2/3 of them are T206... Maybe it's time we admit they're a gateway card....

Bought this from Mike Berkus at one of his Anaheim shows in the late 1970s. Slabbed many years later. They will have to pry it from my cold dead fingers.



This is my first old card:



I have had it for at least 45 years, through multiple moves, two major earthquakes, and everything else.

Would that make Net54 an enabler?

I know I got the T206 bug after I joined. Thankfully after about 100 or so of them I kicked the habit and sold them. Then like a junkie I had a small slip up but luckily it passed.

This was my first prewar card from 20 years ago and the beginning of my Jersey City collection. Still have it and plan to keep it forever.

Pack pulled in 1959. This is the only card I still have from my youth. I was 7 and living on Long Island. A kid down the street had shown me their '58s but I never owned any back then. '59s were the first cards I owned. It's been through a lot but I cherish it.

This was my first vintage Lefty Grove card. I bought it about 32 years ago in 1987 from a dealer who advertised in the Sports Collectors Digest.

I'm not sure how long I have "owned" this. My Grandpa used Polar Bear tobacco and this was his. We found it along with a Cy Young Portrait and a Joe Kelley (both Polar Bears) in his dresser drawer after he and Grandma passed.

We were NEVER allowed to go into his bedroom and we NEVER knew he had them.

We figured that since he only had daughters and too many grandkiddies, he just kept them rather than try to decide who he should give them to.

They were "given" to me with the proviso that they never be sold - they NEVER will be...

I've posted this before on a similar thread some years ago. Circa 1979...A 1933 Goudey Goslin port from a baseball magazine that had an ad page with a bunch of Goudey cards listed with prices. I was a whale for cards even back then, I think I paid $15 or so for it with lawnmower money. Next time I'll tell the time I had my aunt pay $20 for a vg/e 1959 Topps Early Wynn around 1981....Greg Morris cards just sold a similar one on ebay for $1.40

Bought in 2014, which is a long time for me since I seem to change my collecting focus every couple of years, outside a small handful core favorite cards.

This is one of only two vintage cards in my collection (and by far the oldest of the two) that I can trace directly to its original owner who pulled it from a pack. Actually it just had that pack-pull owner then me. Pretty rare in these days of cards changing hands so much and adds a cool dimension to it IMO.

Not my first one as I also started with new stuff in 1976 when I got back into collecting after a 20 year hiatus but probably one of my first vintage that I got at the 1992 Convention.

The 67 Red Sox sticker pulled out of a pack in 1967 at age 5. I remember this quite clearly

The T206 I bought in 1973 from Wholesale Cards for 55 cents

Nice to see Old Eagle Eye here as I live in his hometown of Hannibal and visit his grave thru the year.
