Funny that you mention 89 Score. I literally have almost the entire set in a box that travels with us in our van.....my son reads the backs as we travel.

So.....I took those TO the Antique Mall.

They're few and far between, but you never know.
What player and back was it? If it wasn't a Cobb, it must have been a rare back.

Persistence is the key. Sure you strike out a lot, but occasionally you get lucky. I've found lots of great stuff in antique malls. Just recently I picked up a Dick Groat Hartland for $25. Yes, it's the c1960 vintage one. Although it's been years since I've seen a single pre-WW1 card in a mall, about 7 or 8 years ago I ran across a bunch of Obaks at a local mall, I took some pics and shared them here because I really know next to nothing about that set. Some members here implored me to go back, but they were gone.

I picked up a really nice '59 Clemente from an antique store last year. Coincidently, the antique store was in St. Louis. It was in a stack of cards that were individually priced and it had a $40 price tag on it. Plus there was 10% off that day. I could tell it was in really nice condition, so I took a chance. I got it graded by PSA, and it came back a 7. Nice pick up for $36!

15-16 years ago I came across a display case that had a 19th century photographic cabinet card of a no-name player with New York across his jersey that they had priced at $400, which even with a 10% discount seemed high. I've been there many times since and never came across anything that cool.

10 years ago I did manage to pick this large cabinet photo from the 1910 era of the Harrisburg semi-pro team for $200. I passed on a postcard version of it that I kick myself for not picking up as a companion piece. I think it's the team Bender and Thorpe played for, but not that year.

I passed on this bad boy based on a net54 post generated some discussion. The next day it was gone from the display case. I suspected my post somehow alerted the seller and he had the item pulled, example of the internet making a small world even smaller. Lost no sleep over not picking it up.

I picked these up, likely 30+ yrs ago, thinking I did very well but found out here, (just last year) through opinions and research, they are most likely reprints.

I still like them, however, as I can still remember my excitement when I seen them. (I believe I paid around $7-$8 dollars for them?)
