Default Most Pleasant Surprise of 2011

Now that we are entering the second half of 2011, take a moment to look back at your collecting experiences from January to June.

What was the most unexpected item you were able to secure?

It certainly need not be the rarest or the most expensive. Just an item that you found in an auction, show, flee market or Ebay that you have been looking for for a long time. You always hoped, but never really expected, to find said item this year.

Clearly, the Baseball Card Gods were on your side.

The item we obtained was a sample of the Winthrop Moving Pictures card.
Please see link below, and good luck at the National and during the remaining months of 2011.

Bruce, when I saw that card I thought you were going to buy it. I've seen adds of yours, looking for one of those, that are 15+ yrs old. Nice pickup

I have almost a complete set of the Pinkerton postcards (W530). Filling in the holes is taking quite some time.

I was able to purchase a Connie Mack off Ebay recently. The seller thought it was a T5 and wanted big bucks, but I let him know the postcard was worth substantially less. After it didn't sell for quite some time I was able to purchase it for a much more reasonable sum.

Bruce this is a really great thread! I too remember seeing you mention many times that you were looking for an example from the Winthrop PC set. Congrats!

Nice card.

My big pickup of the year was the balance of the T49 set. Not baseball, but two of the cards were uncataloged. And I never expected to find them all.
Plus a shiny card that's 1 in 18,000 packs.

Nice idea for a thread...

I never thought at the start of 2011 that I'd pick up an uncut sheet of 1933 Goudey Sport Kings. Now it's one of my favorite pieces that I wouldn't want to part with! (Sorry for the flashes; can't get a good pic without a flash off of the glass on the frame.)
