No wonder, I love the Perez-Steele baseballs. Thank you, I will have to pick up a base set.

Congrats Larry! I just completed this set myself recently as I was looking for a few of them for quite a while.

I love the Redskins matchbooks that were produced between the late 30s and the 60s! I wish more teams had matchbook sets like these.

Someone has to be picking up football. These were like $3 a pop for my sets

Cotton Davidson had to have one of the most hard luck careers in Pro Football. Drafted into the NFL in 1954, then into the army in 1955. Returns in 1957 to seriously begin his pro career, but he was a Colt and that was the moment the Colts discovered this Johnny Unitas kid was looking like he would be great. Spends 1958 in Canada and 1959 coaching at Baylor before the AFL gives him his 3rd chance. He does pretty good in 1960 and 1961 (and makes the all star game in 1961 where he is the MVP of that game), but then the Texans discover this other guy Len Dawson, who leads the league in half the passing categories for 1962 and they don't need last years All-Star. Davidson gets dumped to the Raiders (for a draft pick which became Buck Buchanan, a great win for KC) for his 4th chance, where he is now 32. He makes the All-Star team again in his first year as a Raider, though he only gets 5 starts. Gets some playing time but misses a lot of time for the next 4 years and ends his career at 37. Not saying he was a great or anything, but Davidson was good enough to make all-star teams even after what should have been physical prime but something always seemed to happen outside of his control to halt his career.

George Connor is always a good buy in my book, as he is basically priced as a common card in most sets but was a deserving hall of famer and one of the early large-but-quick linebackers. He's a steal.

Default 59 Topps Hornung

Picked up this one at a card show today. Might not be incredibly valuable, but I think it's a great looking card and is undergraded at a "5"! Cell phone shadow on pic, sorry I'm in a hotel room so can't get to my scanner.

I always have fun reading and learning about players when I get their cards. Some interesting Hornung tidbits:

- Heisman winner (1956) for a team that went 2-8?! Looks like it should've gone to Johnny Majors

- MVP winner (1961), possibly the most undeserving MVP winner of all time? 597 rushing yards, 145 receiving yards - Jim Brown had 1408/459 that year and didn't win! Hornung did also kick 15 field goals with a long of 51 yards so maybe that gave him some weird Ohtani-like boost in voting? Packers also won the championship in a 37-0 blowout. Most likely just racism against Brown, though.

- suspended for the entire 1963 season for gambling! including NFL and Packers games ("only to win" of course)

some interesting articles:

I suspect it has more to do with not wanting to give one guy the award every single year, as has often been a problem for generational talents in sports. Brown won the first 2 years, 1957 and 1958. And hed win again later, hard to see a bias against him at work here. Hornung was enormously popular and a fan and media favorite, on the championship team, and led the league in scoring (for the third time in a row). Jim Taylor probably had a better case than Hornung though.

+1000 No sign of racism here IMHO since Brown had already won it two times. Agree that Hornung wasn't the best pick for MVP but if you read Lombardi's book he says Hornung was one of the best if not the best that ever played for him. Looking at stats from previous eras always makes players look bad as the game was a much different game then than it is now. Hornung was considered the key cog in that offense for quite some time by Lombardi.

Yep, I agree with you guys. I didn't realize Brown had won it the previous two years, thanks for pointing that out!

For my NFL 100 (list published by the league) set. Well, NFL 97 because three players on it from the 30s don't have any contemporaneous cards. I am down to one, a National Chicle Dutch Clark.

Happy to have this as a type, from the BST. One of my older football items, not that many cards pre-dating.

Gale Sayers with the Slit B notation. I am not 100% sure who the other Slit marked cards are in 1969 but there will be 1 more from series 1 and 2 from series 2.

Not usually a pink fan but I think this is one of Sayers' better looking cards so I am happy to have an excuse to add a second 69 Sayers to my collection.

92 of 100 down for my base set. O'Brien made the College Hall of Fame the year this was issued, and won the Heisman in 1938, the first Heisman winner to reach the NFL. He retired after only 3 years and I'm not sure why.

I mean, it's not a PSA slab at all . There's nothing to be offended over, you don't have to like low grade pickups. Happy collecting.

I don't understand how these are made. Most wrong backs have the incorrect back printed upside down, because they happened when the sheet was ran through the press backward during one of the sides printing. This Stenerud has Van Heusen's back, but it is not upside down, it is correctly oriented. Van Heusen and Stenerud are both series cards; so it's not from a test of the fronts using a previous sheets backs or something. I have a few of them like this now, I just don't get how they exist yet.

I'm sure it's not expensive enough to meet with full approval, but I like the oddities that instruct about the process or produce a mystery to me.

I picked up a real nice 1962 set across the table at Anaheim, for resale. I might have to get the Davis graded.






Some of the SPs and commons are nm.

If anyone is interested, send me a PM.

Some more for my set build of a full 263 card set of 1971 miscuts. Going to take awhile, some cards are way easier to find this way than others. The more severe, the better!

It is a T49, a tough issue. There are 20 cards, picturing a generic student of a university, often in a sport pose. There's only a handful or so of each subject known. 17 were catalogued by the time of Bob Forbes' book in 1999. The Yale football card here was one of the 3 only discovered to exist a few years ago. The 20 we now know matches the back text, so the set is presumably completely catalogued finally. Not that valuable or anything, but a tough T type.
