No remorse on these. I like most, and I even love my E90-1 Graham.

..If his name wasn't on the card you'd have a hard time figuring out whom it was.



..His '52 Topps is also far from a head-turner , yet his '53 Bowman Color and his Star Cal are drop-dead gorgeous.....

Lots of cards here with a ton of "character." Must say, there is something cool about cards that have been well loved.

If you look close, you'll see that there was some color added to this Kling.

Take Care,

These are really cool. As with many of the items that have been shared, if you hadn't posted, I wouldn't have ever seen cards like these.

There is a Lake and a Cree in a few auctions. I am sort of tempted to give them a home. I have to scan my Arndt. Now that's like a 40% of a card...

Here are a couple more. I don't remember where the N29 came from (it is blank-backed with pencil writing). I am pretty sure I found HITTIN[G AREA] on the sidewalk years ago.

This thread is terrific. Those are some well loved cards!

I wish I had a scanner at hand, as I have a few that would contribute nicely. I've been thinking of sending them off to PSA just for fun. The $10 doesn't bother me. Waiting the better part of a year to get them back though....

Still my favorite pose and one of my favorite all time pre-ward cards. Even if this one is chopped.

A fairly recent pick up with some help from a friend. I think it qualifies for this thread.

Bob is pretty rough, but one of two tough commons from the E103 set and a replacement for a “lost” one that I had.

Default "Scranton Bill" Coughlin -- Maestro of the Hidden Ball Trick

From Wikipedia: The Detroit Tigers teams of 1906–1908, on which Coughlin played, were among the most colorful groups in baseball history, with the flying spikes of Ty Cobb, on-field antics from Germany Schaefer and Charley O'Leary (who toured as a vaudeville act in the off-season), fisticuffs from catcher Boss Schmidt, and the shouts, gyrations, and jigs of Hughie "Ee-Yah" Jennings from the third base coaching box.

Coughlin's role in this colorful bunch was as the maestro of the hidden ball trick. The hidden ball trick is a play in which the runner is deceived about the location of the ball, in an effort to tag him out. Although no known comprehensive list is known to exist of all times when the hidden ball trick has worked, Coughlin reportedly pulled it off seven times (and at three different positions) -- more than any other player in MLB history. He pulled it off on May 12, 1905, against Hobe Ferris of the Boston Red Sox. He did it again on September 3, 1906, catching George Stone in the first inning. In Game 2 of the 1907 World Series, Coughlin caught Jimmy Slagle with a hidden ball trick, the only one in World Series history.

Very interesting, George. Here's "hidden-ball" Bill with the Tigers (shameless plug - this card is currently FS on eBay):

Probably have to take a better shot to fully show this one off, but it's my 1933 Goudey Jimmie Foxx. It's been completely taped over both front and back. I'd like to think some kid taped it up "for protection"

Not mine, but this one has made the rounds on the internet and I love it. Back when I was in OBC, these used to be called "Tiptons on Parade":
