Default Nominations For Prewar Card Of The Year

Posted By: Dan Bretta

Post your choice for the prewar card of the year...this can be a card that changed hands in the last year or was new to the hobby since January 1, 2008. After a week of entries I'll post the top 5 vote getters.

I will go with the Brown Lenox Cobb to get us started.

I nominate the T206 Murr'y Piedmont 350-460 that Turner Engle found earlier this year. I believe it was a significant find, not to mention the card is a one of a kind.

This is the card i sold to Dave F. raw which was found in a box with other T227 cards in a barn at Terryville CT. He had it graded by SGC.

Not a huge find but still new.

I will agree with Jantz, I have been searching Murrays only with tougher backs for the variation for years. I never even bothered looking at a Piedmont. A truly significant find. Dan.

KBats Ward, the two Wagners, Lenox Cobb, Baltimore New Ruth, E107 Matty. It was a good year.

I would add the incredible find of pristine E93s to the group. All but one were sold privately, but here is the one that was sold publicly.

Do collections count? Was the skydash find this year or last year? It changed hands this year, right? So the Thorpe from that find would make a decent nominee.

Oh - and GREAT GREAT idea for a thread, Dan.

I don't remember if the Thorpe sold this year or last December...the collection was found last year and sold in two separate auctions by Mastro...last December's and April/May 2008. Can't recall which one the Thorpe was in, but if it's this year then that's a fine nomination.

Dan,

Based upon Mastro's suggested accounting methods, even a December 2007 sale should be able to be accrued and moved to 2008, if we want. I mean, if it's good enough for the IRS who are we to quibble?

I think the T206 Matty proof should be in the mix too. It is not a six figure card like most of these, but a superstar nonetheless.

To me, this is an easy decision. The T206 Wagner is the most recognized card in the hobby and the most significant. With only a handful of truly nice examples in the hobby, the discover of an unknown beautiful example has to trump all other finds regardless of how significant.

Outside of our small hobby, nobody cares about caramel cards, colgans, 4BH or Kalamazoo Bats. However, the T206 Wagner would appeal to potentially millions of people who have seen or heard of that card at some point in the past.

T206 Weiss Wagner no question about it.

Rhys

LOL! Amazing! That's my hometown. I even ran a small baseball card shop there in the late 80's when I was in High School/College.

Imagine, there's been a box of T227's right under my nose the whole time.

Oh Well!

Here's my nomination. How many collectors have a career contemporary card picturing Pete Hill? Rube Foster? Pop Lloyd, maybe.......

I was class of 1985 in Terryville CT, known as the strip search senior year. We got strip searched because they had a report some people were hiding alcohol to our senior class trip and they decided to search everyone.

I believe we made national news because of that.

Mark,

I remember that. I was a Freshman or a Sophomore when that happened.

I'm older than you guys, but I was a Divisional Merchandise Manager for G. Fox back in 1985. I remember reading that story in the Hartford Courant.

I thought it was just the folly of youth.
