A few new arrivals. The Bobby Orr is the Lipton Soup card but because there are no visible cut lines, it would likely only grade an "A"?

LOL. I thought you might like that one.

With how new/recent these cards are, comparatively, I was hoping to find higher grade examples but at $20 dollars each CDN delivered, I couldn't refuse them.

You definitely got a good deal. That's a nice '7' for the Kurri, and I love oddball issues and you can't get much better than Orr. Funny, as much hockey as I have, I've never gotten a KSA graded card. And heck, I even have an SCD graded Gretzky so its not like I'm married to PSA/BGS.

I thought for a 7 it was a great looking card, especially the centering.

As far as grading goes and different companies, I likely have cards from almost everyone but not once have I sent a card in, personally, to get graded.

I have heard/read numerous stories about KSA, all from severely negative to highly recommended but I personally have no idea how true any of them are?
I heard under the old ownership one had to be careful but I have quite a few times now the new guy, Nate, is suppose to be on top of his game?

They certainly don't have wide hobby appeal nor do they carry the same clout/value as SGC or PSA graded cards, but so far so good, imo, with the cards I have purchased. All fit the cases/slabs perfectly and none show any signs of shenanigans as far as my eyes can tell.

Like you, I have never personally sent a card for grading.

I pretty much buy the card, not the grade nor the company. That Kurri 7 is indeed a nice one, I have had a nice 7 and a poor 7 (both PSA). I imagine that happens a certain percentage of the time with all of the grading companies. Just part of the deal I guess.

[quote=Exhibitman;1971508]I have one in my collection; not an easy card to find.

There are 2 JD McCarthy Bucyk cards. This is the more difficult one to find.

Ray Bourque RC 80-81 OPC and a recent scan update of my Jaromir Jagr that I pulled years ago and placed in its current recessed screw down. OC, mostly back, keeps this card from being a 10, imo, even though it is pack fresh.

Another arrival today. 82-83 OPC Grant Fuhr RC. Had a bit of a tough time finding a raw one centered for a decent price but lucked out on this one, finally.

Very nice. Such a great card, big fan of the cards of that era and that's a good one.

Based simply on your "new acquisitions" posts, you must have an amazing collection.

Thanks, Rob.
I also like the cards from that era, especially the Gretzky . Hindsight being 20/20, I should have purchased a OPC BVG 6 for $600 a few years ago.
I thought it was a lot of money back then, and it was, but I could have easily doubled it now as they seem to be on fire.

I am getting there with my collection. Outside of concentrating on my 52's, I pretty much have a mish mash of everything. (most in my link below)

I just watched a 67-68 Orr All Star card end. I wanted to bid but due to the sellers feedback and description of the card (VG) plus the fact I'd have to pay 13% sales tax on it, I decided against it. I think I made the right decision but due to the cards centering, it was tough not to bid. https://www.ebay.ca/itm/1967-68-TOPP...orig_cvip=true

I'm not sure what I am going to chase next? I recently got burned on a Darryl Sittler RC that came creased so with that one on its way back, I will likely try to find another one?

I'm still picking up cards to complete my vintage Parkhurst run. The cards are available, but I may just need to get up off my wallet and pay.
1952-1963 I now need 59 cards (I'm collecting the '51 series as well but I need ALOT LOL). Batters Box and Greg Morris cards continue to supply, and these arrived today. I use the old Tuff Stuff price guide which is online I really don't know how accurate it is https://www.tuffstuff.com/priceguides
1953 Doug Harvey #26 cost me $28 which is a little less than 20% "book"and just 2 more cards left to complete my set.
1958 "All Eyes On the puck" cost me $11.13 a touch more than 20% book and just 4 cards left to complete my set.
1959 Carl Brewer cost me $6.13 about 6% book I need just two more cards for my set.

Larry

Picked up another Darryl Sittler OPC RC as the first one I won ended up being creased despite the sellers claim it had no flaws.

A couple recent P/U's. One is of Ty Dellandrea's signed OHL Flint Firebirds card. Ty is a friend's nephew and a local boy to me who was chosen in the first round, 13th overall, by the Dallas Stars.

The 2nd is another Sidney Crosby RC. 05-06 Beehive card that I happened across and went for it. A 10 would have been nicer but I have zero complaints with this card.

Two for my album:



Tho they are a year apart I wonder if they were shot at the same game?

The 1973 has been a favorite since I was a kid--doesn't get any better than Wilt and Kareem battling it out.

Nice cards, Rob!

I just received this one yesterday in the mail. I was looking for/watching his Young Gun cards and seen how they were increasing in value in every auction so I decided to step out from the craze and purchase this one while searching and seeing another one end just shortly before. I don't normally talk up my cards, but this one is a great looking card, imo.

A couple of new acquisitions......

I am a big fan of 80s hockey cards, particularly O-Pee-Chee. I like that you get rookies cards, difficult to find in good condition, of players like Neal Broten, a HOF icon, for $10. In US hockey, he's the equivalent of Barkley, and good luck finding a 3rd year Barkley for $10...

Love the OPC hockey, great pick-ups. Agreed, so many great cards of great players for little to nothing relatively. Especially love the Broten, would fit in my little "Miracle" pc.
