Default May Pickups...

Wow, you can tell cards are getting even more stupidly expensive, because no one is seemingly buying anything these days. It is the afternoon of May 3rd, and there hasn't been a monthly pickups thread created until now. Yowza!!

Speaking of 'overpriced' (your opinion may vary) cards, were it not for a big chunk of credit card points, I would've had to pass this one by. I am convinced Nolan Ryan cards will continue to go crazily upwards as it gets harder and harder to afford other illustrious superstars like Mantle (duh!), Aaron, Mays, Koufax and Clemente, so I made it happen.

1971 Topps #513 Nolan Ryan. It has the obligatory centering found on this card, but the focus is sharp (my scanner lacks the CCD element) and the only thing blacker than those borders is the mold in my shower. There's no evidence present, but if I had to guess, I'd say the submitter had the choice of getting either a PSA 8 OC or the straight PSA 6 (asking for no qualifiers) and opted for the latter...

Thanks for reminding me I need to upgrade my 71 Ryan! Great card...


Here are some miscellaneous cards I just picked up. First off is my LAST two cards for my 1959 Topps set...enjoyed putting that one together and it went rather quick. Last card is Minnie Minoso...classic card, class player. Also waited until the end for my Gibson rookie...best raw card I could find...first time I have ever owned this iconic card...






Found a REALLY nice for the grade 55 Koufax...I have had several through the years and my 55 set is missing both Koufax and Clemente and it's time to get new ones. The 1.5 is due to some staining on the back...can't wait to get this one in hand...




Also, very randomly, I wondered into an auction closing and jumped in, and upgraded my 60 Yaz rookie. My other card isn't that bad, but I just couldn't resist a good deal...

Received this one on Saturday (which is why I am moving the SGC 5.5 in the BST):

I bought this last month in the REA auction but just got it today, so I'll count it for May.

Darren gets the credit for this one. I couldn't pry a copy from his collection, but drooling over his '61 All Stars inspired me to get my own.

Great cards everyone! This was also technically an April pickup, but just now getting around to showing it, so will include it here. I now have two of these for my 67 set. Im not sure thats 100% necessary, but it feels good to me right now:

That Banks is STELLAR, Matthew. Good centering on a '58 is rare, and so attractive when it's dead-on like that. Great color, too.

Very cool Rose Jay...I saw a few of those at a show a couple of weeks ago and I know ZERO about them...never saw them as a kid either. I need to do some research on those as they are really cool looking. Great card!

Love that Rose Jay. 1971 is my favorite set and I've often considered doing the GM set but the cost and centering issues always scare me off. Congrats on the Rose, that's a great card!

Big mail day (OK, yesterday + today) for me and my 67 set. 52 Rush is an upgrade. 54 Bollweg goes into my set. 75 mini is a mistake. Thought it was the regular issue, not the mini. Grrr.

Dale, I didn't realize it took that long for mail to get to Canada from the US if Jackie Robinson sent you a postcard and it just arrived today.

Pretty good mail day today. Yeah, there are some centering issues, but for the price, they don't bother me much. Especially with the Brooks - it's hard to find a decent one that doesn't cost an arm and a leg.

Dammit! I even rotated the image before I saved it so it would upload right. Why does it do that every single time??

Thanks! Carl has some stray black ink smudging (kind of like the dark equivalent of snow?) but is otherwise pretty nice. I already had one, but, like you, I couldn't resist a good deal with prices on his rookie rising lately.

I've wanted one of these for a long time and finally found one I liked at what seemed to be a reasonable price. The scan is a little unforgiving -- in life, the snow isn't so prominent. My favorite Topps Clemente card.

Wanted this card for years but it never fit into whatever I was collecting at the time. Still doesn't but stopped procrastinating.

Congrats! One of my favorites and a card that actually looks better to me a little careworn, just like Satch.

Big day for my 67 set, this one has been on a want list for quite some time. The entire set will still be a while in putting together, but its now actually more of a possibility than a pipe dream:

John....CONGRATS! Thats a big pickup right there...long gone are the days where you could pick an EX card up for a 100 bucks, and that wasn't that long ago. That is a beauty...no creases and really centered, super clean... nicely done. BTW...I am a glutton...when I finished my 67s I just kept buying high numbers when I would see a good deal as I couldn't stop looking...it was like an addiction...lol. I'm now at 450 cards towards a second set! I do need another Carew and Seaver...so...there is that...lol.

Already have a raw one with a few annoying "waves" for my new set, but saw this and couldn't resist the upgrade. Go nice with my SCG 50's collection...




Also picked this up with a few others on a really nice set break on the bay...may have to write a number "8" on there... My set is really coming together...

I was happy to get that card years ago. The one I have has a crease through the Minnesota player (Rod whatshisname) but I got it for Hank Allen. I was chasing it for my Senators team sets.

Nice pick up.
