Through CardTarget.com I was able to pick up a 1933 Goudey Mel Ott PSA 8.5 for $2100. Great thing about it was I was able to purchase it little by little over 3 months. Unfortunately CardTarget does not have the Partial Shares MarketPlace anymore

Jim: Got to agree with you on the Matty cabinet. Am surprised you hadn't seen it yet. I have posted it several times. In fact I think many of the fellows are rolling their eyeballs by now. The scan is about 90% of the actual size (it's not in correct proportion to the M110). Your Mr Ewing is none too shabby neither. I do not understand this thing, how you call it?, "grading". If that's a two, I am a Dutchman.

Edited to say thanks for the E93 pop reports.

It's not a prewar card, but this was by far my best pickup of the year:

David.... For the record - I never roll my eyes when I see those scans!
My stomach gets a bit jumpy.... and I start to feel woozy... by my eyes stay still.

Your collection is incredible.
One day I would love to take a trip to paradise and hopefully get an opportunity to see it in person!



My favorite pickups of the year:

Baseball:
I was very picky about this one. I looked for a long time - trying to find 'the' one.
I wanted perfect registration.... and registration is usually off at least a little bit on this card.
Happy to have found the one I was looking for.

Golf:
In my eyes this is the T206 Wagner of golf cards.

Non Sport:
I thought I would go years before having the opportunity to grab one of these.

Great stuff, guys. Just wow...

My best baseball pickup for the year, or at least the one I liked best, was a 1925 Exhibit Champions Babe Ruth.

Scott, that's about one of the nicest 2s I've ever seen -- and the best card ever to have such a 2.

Can someone explain this to me:

Where Gary posted his picture I just get a red "x" and the words "linked image." I likewise get it every time Dan McKee posts a picture, as well as some other people.

Why doesn't my computer pick up the image?

Barry, I get the red x with Dan's signature line pic but not with Gary's card. Perhaps it's becuase you live in Brooklyn?

Come to think of it, I think I forgot to pay my electric bill.

So which card did Gary show?

Now I can see it. It's the 1865 Nationals of Albany.

Nice Richard, I had to settle for a Minor Leaguer happy.gif

If anyone has the D380 Pattee I am very interested in buying or trading for it.

Awesome card, Richard! The Clemente Bread Ty Cobb must rank as one of the penultimate rarities in this hobby.

Barry, if it happens again that you get the dreaded "red x" do a hard refresh by holding down the shift key and hitting F5. That will usually cure the problem.

While I had some amazing pickups for the beer collection in 2008, the sports was a bit slow. I did manage to pick up this nice one though.

Great McGreevey, Greg!


2008 was a great year, leaving me with a difficult choice. I would say my M101-4 Duffy Lewis (Sporting News back) is number one on the list, followed by my T210-8 Berger:
