Default 1910 T229 Kopec Jack Johnson

Looks like its time to let my baby go. I bought this in a group raw and got it graded; the only one I've seen although there are undoubtedly others. This falls into the class of cards that get priced high at a show so it doesn't sell. Let's see some others!

Great card.

While everything is for sale at the right price, I could cite quite a few from my collection that would not be sold absent an insane offer. Some of them:

1904 Jeffries-Munroe cabinet card by Sporting Life magazine:



E80 Jack Johnson that belonged to Jefferson Burdick:



Benny Leonard "Flying Fists" die cut. One of two known specimens and the other one has the tab removed:



1938 American Sweets Joe Louis:



1951 Ringside salesman sample with Marciano RC:



This one isn't as impressive, but it is rare and I just happen to like it:

I had a hunch someone cornered the market on Frank Gotch Kopec card(s).

Although Kopec cards pop up from time to time, that card can honestly be described as "rarer than rare".

True. In my case I got a type and breathed a sigh of relief. They do turn up though. I picked up a Kopec Attell on a trade a few years ago at a national.
