Yeah, I think its the downward-plane, front-footed follow through shot, like the Irvin above.

Anyone seen the original photo this is from (or any photo of him batting right-handed)? I know when batting lefty he held the bat normally. Unless this is supposed to be the follow-thru from a lefthanded swing? Hmm...

Early delivery. Per my tracking, this guy wasnt supposed to show up until Wednesday. But I guess like Robert himself, this card was rapid:

Hell, maybe the centering isn't for everyone, but I have always adored this card due to the strange mystique surrounding its rareness (a short-printed card - with a huge number of them found 'checked' - in a set that had a very short shelf-life). Sort of my own personal 'Cardboard Bigfoot,' as I love catching even a glimpse of one...

Default 1952 Topps

Needed this guy for my set. 1952 Topps = 405/407. Likely the coolest card that I have ever owned. Love everything about it...the player, the condition, the color, the set...love it! 😊

NICE Jackie!!! I hope one day I will own that card...

Darren...count me in as a lover of the 63 Fleer Checklist...I've owned a couple over the years and my current card has light pencil markings and soft corners, and I love it. BTW...the reprints have "Printed in CSA" on the back at the bottom right, and the real cards have "Printed in USA". Amazing to see just how many reprints are on ebay at any given time aged to look old. It's one of the better reprints out there (I bought a mint one for whatever reason that sits next to my original)...

John...LOVE the Bob Feller! After my 60's are complete I am going to finish up my 58 Topps and begin the 55 Bowman...I've always loved those TV cards...

Darren, who cares about centering in this case. Beautiful card. I could just never pull the trigger to pick up this checklist, although I knew it was very rare without being checked.

Went on a bender this weekend...added to my SGC run of Hank Aaron's and Harmon Killebrews...here are a couple of Aarons. Both solid for 2's...I just looked for cards with no creases. Both have not even a wrinkle...

Getting so close to finishing out the 60s I can smell it...

Down to 5848/5989 base cards, or 98%...needing 141. Only need 1 Mantle (63), 1 HOF rookie (63, Stargell) and I see the light on the 62 and 67 high numbers (picked up a ton this weekend). Here are a couple of cards I've owned previously...used to have an SGC 5 Rose...prices have changed just a bit, didn't know if anyone knew that...haha...so a 4 will have to do. I was hoping for a 5 in my Carew Rookie but couldn't pass up the deal on this one. The Carew will be "freed"...the Rose will not...it will be the only graded card for my set run due to the high amount of reprints/counterfits. I have one of those counterfit Rose cards for my binder...can't have a hole!







The Rose fits with my set standards...I need crease free cards above all else...soft corners are ok but has to be centered...OC is OK (gotta have border showing) if the corners are crisp. Everyone has their standards, those are mine...

Thanks. I had a beater copy of this card as a kid, maybe circa 1989 that my mother bought for me. This is a much upgraded replacement of that card.

63 Fleer Checklist

Scrolled through the "Sold" on Ebay and saw this one that sold for $175...

https://www.ebay.com/itm/1963-Baseba...p2047675.l2557


Sucks...you can see on the back scan "Printed in CSA"...total reprint...someone got hosed.


Edit to add another reprint that sold for $145...hosed again...at least this person got free shipping...

Yowza!! I didn't even know about that until you posted it (and I'm sure every single person reading this thread who has one grabbed their card and flipped it over to see if they had been screwed). Thank God mine states it was printed in the the good ole USA. Are the reprints thinner than normal? In the back scan from that auction, you can see features of the front coming through. Unless the scanner has a uranium-235 element, that shouldn't happen. And the centering is too absolutely perfect all the way around. It sucks you can't contact buyers on ebay anymore.

You're right. I checked mine and was happy to see USA at the bottom.

Glad your guys are good...phew...

Yeah, in hand it's a no brainer...feels like a 2021 Topps card, one of the chrome 52 replicas if you know what I mean. Same thickness and feel.


Troy...I saw that Eddie, that's a hell of a card...tough to find that centered!

Classic Minoso...

Yep this is a seller that has mostly counterfeits. I saw that 63F checklist a lot over the last few months. Doesn't look quite right and priced much too cheap.

I've been wanting a well-centered 68 Ryan for a while. With how much prices have gone up, I probably should've gotten one a few years ago. (Purchased right here on the B/S/T board!)

Anyone who has collected these 63 Fleer knows how poorly centered they tend to be. This card especially...I might see 1-2 cards each year like this. I've been outbid on it about 10 times over the past few years, so I was thrilled to overpay a little for this example. When I got it in hand, I really think the grader must've been having a rough day. IMO, it wouldn't look out of place in in an 8 or 8.5 holder.

(Also, this bring me to 18 out of 24 on my Brooks set.)

Add me to the list of people that hadn't heard about these reprints. At least by putting "Printed In CSA" on the back they made them easy to spot.

If you think about it, Printed In CSA is actually pretty amusing. A fake card printed in a non-existent country. Seems like the counterfeiters decided to have some fun.

Due to "life issues", my pickups have been virtually non-existent for months.

Perusing Ebay, I came across this one, and for the grade and price, the eye appeal really floored me.
Not having any Frank Robinson cards, I had to have it.

Worked out a deal, and extremely happy with it.

The colors are great in hand, and the clarity is very strong for '57s, which can have a multitude of problems.
That said, it does have a slight wrinkle on the front only, which you can barely see at the exact right angle and light.




This is just a cell phone snap, so excuse the cell phone and back lighting reflections, but you should get the idea.

Happy to own this one now and add it in to my collection.

It made me think of the "Confederate States of America" which the rebel army put on some of their equipment.

Legend says that when US Grant accepted Lee's sword at Appomattox Court House, he gave him a pack of unopened baseball cards to help ease his loss.

Printed in CSA would date the card to around the 1860's. So, the conversation should probably be moved over to the pre-WW2 chat group . When I started collecting cards I picked up one of the fleer checklists mixed in a large lot. Not knowing how scarce it was, I gave it to my daughter with some junk cards to sell at a yard sale. She was thrilled to get $10 for the goofy looking thing. Of course I had to pick one up later in life for a bit more $. Just one of a handful of oops moments. She had a blast selling those cards though.

Cool. I was fully expecting someone to jump in with, "Lee never actually surrendered his sword, blah, blah, blah...", so your reply was better.

I was such a dangerous hitter I even got intentional walks during batting practice.

Spelling "Yastrzemski" correctly without needing to look it up since the 1980's.

Overpaying yesterday is simply underpaying tomorrow.

When I got it in hand, I really think the grader must've been having a rough day. IMO, it wouldn't look out of place in in an 8 or 8.5 holder.

(Also, this bring me to 18 out of 24 on my Brooks set.)

Beautiful Brooksie! Agreed that a sharp, centered one is hard to find. Looks like an 8+. Congrats.

I made a recent YouTube video showing my Lelands Auctions pickups featuring a larger lot of (33) Bell Brand Dodgers w/ (2) Sandy Koufax along with several Non-Sports Cards lots I won from them. Pretty fun hodge-podge video...

Be sure to check out some of my other recent videos, like this one featuring my signed 1951 Bowman project...

Cross-posting from the auto side. I bought this Ryan rookie raw at the end of February. Had it for a day before I mailed it in to the Nolan Ryan Foundation and just got it back. Nice to finally enjoy it:

Hello all - long time listener and first time poster. Thought I would add some of my 2021 pick-ups for fun. I really enjoy seeing all of the pictures and the discussions on the site and hope to contribute in the future.

These are cards I had in college and I had to sell around 1990 to help pay tuition and living expenses and beer. I had a great Nolan Ryan collection in the 1980's. Anyway, I decided to start buying them back and to start my collecting up again - like a lot of people the last year.

I am building out my Ryan's, Schmidt's, and some other stars of the 60's-80's that I had to part with. I also dabble in 1970's and 80's hockey but that is for another forum. Thanks for listening!

Nice grouping. (Any Mel Brooks fans here??)
Those probably cost a pretty penny, but the Ryan Express is definitely skyrocketing these days. Great stuff!!

In another thread, I was introduced to the 1973 Topps '53 Reprints which I did not know existed. Even though, the actual 1953 cards are only slightly more expensive and despite the presence of the 1991 reprint set, I found that I had to pick up a couple:

Johnny Mize as he was a fellow Georgian

&

The Clyde McCullough error that is actually Vic Janowitz, who won the Heisman at Ohio State...fairly cool...to me anyway.


Just love the art-work!
