Default Looking back -Five most important acquisitions - 2008

Posted By: Bruce Dorskind

As 2008 draws to a close, it is an appropriate time to reflect on the year,
and particularly one's experiences in the hobby.
What were your five most important acquisitions during 2008? Please list
in order of importance.

Our five favorites this year were
1911 Bishop (E 100) Peckinpaugh SGC 80
1926 Domion Chocolates- Joe Breen PSA7
1936 Worldwide Gum Joe McCarthy SGC 84
1910 E 93- Hooks Wiltse PSA 7

Number 5 was not a card, but rather a full ticket to the third game of the 1958 World Series played at Yankee Stadium. Don Larsen shut out the Braves 4-0. It was our very first baseball game. A memory we will always treasure

Best wishes for a joyous holiday and a prosperous (it will be for some folks) 2009

Bruce, I never thought of looking back to see how I did for the year. Nice idea.

I actually felt pretty good after looking to see what I added to my MLB HOF RC collection.

In 2008 I added a quite few cards I had been trying to get for 3 years.



Here's my list:

1. 1923 Jim Bottomley Maple Crispette (raw, now SGC20)

2. 1914 CJ Ray Schalk SGC50

3. 1926 Sports Co of America Tony Lazzeri SGC30

4. 1903 E107 Type 1 Willie Keeler GAI Auth

5. 1907 Dietsche Postcard Ty Cobb SGC10





Top 10 Other Cards (not in any particular order):

1929 R316 Kashin Chic Hahey PSA7 (will be crossing over to SGC, I hope!)

1926 Exhibits Left Grove SGC50

1922 American Caramel Gabby Hartnett SGC50

1925 Exhibits Red Ruffing SGC60

1916 M101-4 Eppa Rixey SGC40

1931 Exhibits Luke Appling SGC40

1931 Exhibits 4-1 Bill Dickey SGC40

1933 Goudey Babe Ruth PSA2

1887 Allen & Ginter Cap Anson SGC10

1887 OJ Mickey Welch SGC30

Nice idea for a thread.

I went VERY easy on acquisitions this year. So easy, in fact, that I'm going to count an acquisition from the very end of 2007 as my best of 2008:

1) Henry Johnson Confectioners Babe Ruth. Got it just after Thanksgiving, 2007. I doubt I'll ever see another, although it appears that PSA has graded two (one is mine).

2) '38 Goudey #281 Al Lopez, SGC 88

3) Henry Johnson Confectioners Walter Johnson. With a Cobb, Ruth, and Johnson, I guess Alexander is probably the next "key" card I need.

4) Very nice '38 Goudey #253 Hank Greenberg, SGC 80

5) 1888 Potters' League Champions imperial cabinet photo of the Clark Brothers' team from Trenton, NJ.

6) Wire photos from 1928 of Walter Johnson managing the Newark Bears, and from 1929 of Tris Speaker managing the same team.

-Al

Top 5:
--4 on 1 Universal Toy & Novelty Co. card from the Universal Surprise Box. I have been lusting after this card for years for my Benny Leonard collection; got it during the National on Ebay. W-Unc., very tough...The fighters are Jack Britton, Pal Moran, Luis Angel Firpo and Benny Leonard.
--E78 Jim Jeffries upgrade
--(4) 1923 Wesley Andrews, Inc. Jack Dempsey cards: Sold at his training camp in Montana in boxed sets of 12 cards. Very tough to find.
--Sean Connery autographed PC. Genuine Connery autographs are almost impossible (nearly all available are secretarial); apparently he is a bit of a bastard and doesn't sign much.
--Leader Novelties Lefty O'Doul

A few favorites:
--1948 Leaf Ted Williams and Honus Wagner: always wanted these, picked them up in lower grade on the cheap for fun.
--1944 Academy Awards ticket. The oldest Oscars ticket I've ever seen.
--1925 Exhibit Champions Babe Ruth: down to 7 cards for the set.
--1921 Exhibit Earl Caddock: next to the last card I need for the boxing/wrestling set. Jesse Westergaard anyone?

T206 Broadleaf 460 of a Philadelphia Phillie
T215 Pirate Back of a Philadelphia Phillie
1915 Postaco Stamp of Grover Alexander, SGC 88

I'll leave it at those three -- there are other neat items I picked up early in the year, but I don't specifically remember off the top of my head late 2007 vs. early 2008
