My collecting year has been made. I doubt I'll get something as big to me as this pretty much ever. I started my T220 Silver set when I was 12 in Christmas 2003, when my Dad bought me my first 7 boxing cards because they looked cool with the silver borders and he thought I might like them even though they weren't baseball. Probably a mistake, I've been addicted to the T220 Silver's and from there the whole c. 1910 E/T/C card period of boxing ever since. 6,975 days later my favorite set is finally complete, and in spectacular fashion for I completed my first set, my second set, my third set, my fourth set, my fifth set, my sixth set, my seventh set, and my eighth set all at once. It was peak hobby enjoyment to take this box over and open it up with my Dad like we did with my first T220 silvers.

I donít know how many Corbettís are out there, I have not tracked them as religiously as I have the 4 Donovans (a lot easier to track, as they have all been discovered during my time in the hobby and in the scan era) but these 8 probably represent around 50-66% of the total population now. PSA has 4 graded, SGCís registry produces 0 Corbettís and 0 Donovanís and just 1-3 of the commons so it is clearly useless still but I don't believe they've ever had one. I've heard of a couple raw ones out there, but rumors aren't photos.

I don't want to out anyone who might want to remain anonymously private but I got a call from the original buyer, who didn't have to do this at all as I have no entitlement to these whatsoever, and structured a deal specifically just to get the Corbett sheet into my silver-loving collection. Even after we discussed bids and valuations, that it might one day be a Graziano type item in an open and properly listed sale, and his original intent to quietly keep it, he offered it to me because reconstructing this sheet is my passion project at a generous price in one heck of a gesture. Not only did he do this great kindness, he then shipped me the sheet immediately before we had even finished the logistics of payment. I've arranged for certain unique items to end up in certain peoples collections because they really care about them, but this is a value range I don't typically even play in at all. Wow!

I will also insert a plug for the remaining 2 panels that have survived to the present. To whoever owns the Randall/Belasco, I will pay you stupid money for it. Same for the Choyinski if its owner ever gets bored of looking at it. And with the Corbett printing proofs, I still need a final production normal Corbett to go along with them. Iím going to keep building some side sets of 23 (One side set Iím doing is fully beaters, trying to find the worst condition examples of each of the 23 base cards I can) of it as it is my favorite release, but Iím almost wrapped up here with as complete a collection as can be made. Iím not aware of any extant oddities I donít own, but who knows what is out there (hint hint ). Maybe a Jack Goodman really will crop up one day and give me a new white whale.

That's fantastic Greg. Glad you got that piece in your hands, and kudo's to whoever worked out the deal with you. Great twist to the story.

Probably belongs on a non-sport site but I'll put my Reginald Denny here.

Bill, I like you taste. Cine cards are normally a bit strange, but I like them.

Default Buster Douglas - 1990 Sega Super Play

This card is sure to be on ever boxing collectors ďmust haveĒ list. This one is just a standard size card that fits in a 3 X 4 top loader, not the larger cabinet sized card.

Chad, there is a 1991-1992 copyright on the Douglas, so I do not think it is a 1990 card.

Adam, I just assumed it was the same year as the cabinet card. I guess I should have looked a little closer. Lol..

Is this Buster Douglas card actually a tough card? I've got at least a couple stashed away in an album and never thought twice about them before, but there doesn't seem to be much of a history of them on-line. I figured they were mass produced like the Muhammad Ali AW Sega card.....but maybe not so much.
