Very cool, thanks for the heads up! I'm heading to Phoenix for a week during spring training so I'll definitely check it out.

Default Ken Kendrick collection

His collection is amazing!

Some of his cards include:

T206 Honus Wagner PSA 8
1916 M101 Babe Ruth Sporting News Rookie PSA 8
1952 Topps Mickey Mantle PSA 10

The cards mentioned above which are the top 3 sports cards in Joe Orlando's top sports cards book are the highest grades in existence.

Uh, lemme see if I got this straight. A guy who practically runs the joint (yes, I know they are publicly traded) writes a book which lists three cards, which his very own company graded, as the highest in existence. The most famous card, of course, is. admittedly ...

His company grades them; they didn't print or make them.

Many collectors would agree those are the three "top" cards in the hobby.

You are correct. And everybody in the hobby now knows that the first card they graded, the flagship of the fleet, belongs in an Authetic holder.

Look, this topic has been beaten to death around here. So I myself would be bored to death to exhume it. I was only pointing out about the book written by the guy who...

I saw this collection when it was on display at the Hall of Fame. Leaving aside some controversial aspects of the discussion, I will say this:

I spent the better part of an hour looking at the collection, and considered it time well spent.

Best regards,

Eric

Ok just to make you feel better, I will swing by and take a gander at the cards on Wednesday afternoon, March 16th as I will also be in the Phoenix area for baseball spring training.
I will let you know if they are any good

I'll be busy watching games after that for the rest of the week!
