Default Look what I picked up today....

Hello all,

I thought I'd share a picture of a card I picked up today. It was part of about 2 dozen other '59 and '60 Bell Brand Rams cards. Pretty cool huh?

I don't know much about the 1959 and 1960 Bell Brand cards (except they are super cool LOL). I have one or two in my collection.

Looking at the Standard Catalog the 1959 set is numbered to #40, and the 1960 set is numbered to #39.

No #43 is listed, no Tom Frankhauser is listed?

The pictured card certainly looks legit to me, what is the story and why isn't it cataloged?

Larry

Wow, very cool pickup! Have you compared it to the other 1959 Bell Brand Rams you have? Do you believe it is an uncatalogued card or from some related promotion?

Here is a picture of a description from Beckett (see image).

I also looked at the PSA Pop report and none have ever been submitted. Looks like it is a very rare card.

Very interesting stuff. Thanks for posting this. Was not aware that there were additional SP cards in this set.

I wonder who is/was card #42?

Quick update for anyone who is interested. I sent the card in to PSA for grading, and I just got the grade back today. It came back as a PSA 2 GD. According to the pop report, it appears to be the first one ever graded by PSA. Pretty cool stuff.
