Jim,
that Hornsby rookie is a really strong card. The person might have kept that one and sold off the rest? Not a bad buy IMO

A psa 3 Hornsby rookie sold in Barry's auction for 7,296. I think the price was in line but I over pay all the time so what do I know. Someone might have just wanted that Hornsby card is my point. They paid for it.

You must mean 2 people wanted the Hornsby card. Still I am not afraid to pay up. But man, I just don't get this one?? Not being confrontational I just am floored by this lot... ****

Hell I would rather have a CSA 2 then a GAI 2. Though's that remember CSA.

Everyone has a different approach. Maybe two people were going at like you mentioned. Who knows. Will CSA be grading at the national?

Well, based on what some similar cards did individually in Barry's auction, I'd say that this Mastro lot might even be considered a bargain. I realize that the Hornsby in Barry's auction was a "3" and the Mastro auction was a "2" but you still have to place the value of that card alone at a few thousand dollars. Take a look at some of the other cards in the Mastro lot. It's actually chock full of rookie cards. A similar e135 Rice e135 went for $1746 in Barry's auction. The Rickey, Traynor and Schalk rookies are a few hundred apiece. The combined value of all of these cards might even exceed the final price by a thousand or more once they're all added up.

Buying that for the Hornsby and selling off the rest could get you into the Hornsby at a bargain price. The other rookie cards were nice too.

For the price I don't think it's worth it. Although, I have forsure been wrong before. Brian, does Barry charge a consignment fee??

I won the lot and am happy to have it.

Edited to say: I'll probably keep four cards from the lot. The Rice isn't a cheap one either.

There are those that collect and those that flip/deal. I am sure we have different mindsets.

Cat, nice to see you retired on a high note.

Now stay away from you-know-what in August.

You wouldn't deny a retiring collector one last shot at his dream card... would you?

I think Cat would not lose money if he chose to sell all fourteen cards. The Hornsby alone in Barry's auction went for over $7200. It is my understanding though that he wants to hang on to several cards in this lot.
