That's a heckuva Mantle.



Some day I gotta bust this out and get The Big Hurt to cosign it. Sure looked good in a Yankees uni...how many WS would the Bombers have won with Thomas on the team in the 1990s?

Happy, Hobby, Feel Feel.
Paddy Livingston's evolution; different ideas he had; of signing autograph pieces; mail order or at shows; up until he passed in 1977. He was the last survivor of the "T206" era (1910's), still signing autographs.

I've derived much enjoyment from this thread, so I figured that I owe it a card. Does anyone know what sort of candy Oppie Dildocks was? I Googled it and came up empty.

It doesn't address candy type, but perhaps the name was adapted from a contemporaneous comic strip:

W.L. Wells made the newspaper strip 'Old Opie Dilldock's Stories' in the Chicago Tribune between October 1908 and 1914. The strip was created by F. M. Howarth, who died shortly afterwards. On 24 February 1915, he created 'Old Nicodemus Nimble'. source:www.lambiek.net.

This card, particularly the background, makes me happy:

Try searching for it by using blatantly misspelled words, like they did with "Your" on the back of that card.

Spelling "Yastrzemski" correctly without needing to look it up since the 1980s.

This is one of my all time favorite cards. Not because of the grading company or the counterfeit card they slabbed. Before a recent huge find this was a fairly rare card. A very long time card friend of mine bought it years ago. I tried buying/trading for it many many times over the years.

Then about a year ago because of age and the fact none of his family wanted anything to do with his collection he decided to sell it all. Even though we have made hundreds of trades/sales to each other over they many years. I finally got this one from him and will cherish it as long as I have a collection.

My Dad collected a lot of late 80's early 90's unopened junk wax, thinking some day they might be worth something...of course they're not...so literally just last Thursday, I broke open a full box of 89' Fleer hoping to get this exact card. Unfortunately, all I got was the version with the black box wiping out the knob.

Great cards. E220s are all over the place.
Big borders....

Thanks Leon, and neat Croft's. I typically end up with something that has little to no borders/backgrounds like these.

I used to own a Darby Chocolates Chief Myers cut-out like that, Brian. I still like die-cut cards. From a design standpoint, this is one of my favorites:



The fight sucked but the card is freakin' great. It is the size of a 1952 Topps card, to the top of the eagle silhouette.

Another die-cut I love:



Two known examples, this one and one with the stand torn off.

This card isn't die-cut but I ran across the image and decided to put it up because it always makes me wonder "why was Jack Dempsey punching a blind guy?"

Not a boxing fellow, but that is a cool Leonard diecut card. Here is the high number Batter-Up of Dickey that a kid did what a kid does, but then gave up halfway through.
