Upgraded my ‘72 Lefty. I still think this is one of the most underrated cards of the 1970’s. The only card from his fabled 27-10 season to feature Carlton as a Phillie, and nice copies can easily be had for less than $50. Imagine if Nolan Ryan had a high-number “Traded” card from ‘72...

Soon to be included in my 1961 Topps for trade thread , I couldn't pass this Santo up. Man, qualifier or not, this high grade HOF rookie card is just the slightest hair off-center top to bottom. Looks pretty damn sweet to me...

That centering isn't bad at all! Great pick up on a razor sharp card!

I can't understand why that card has an "OC" qualifier. Looks outstanding to me and CERTAINLY not "OC". Very nice!

Love it. I never understood why they gave Fregosi that card but not Ryan.

Me, too. Apparently it was all because Fregosi was in the first series, so he was 'wrongly' pictured as an Angel, but Ryan came in the later series and Topps was able to picture him on his new team.

Thank you! Not quite sure why it's only a '3'. Has no creases or wrinkles. It does have a very faint roller mark towards the center of the card.

Wow! Hats off to you. You did really good!!

Incoming today. Thanks eBay bucks! I will say it again - always have thought the ‘61s are under appreciated in comparison to ‘65 or ‘67 Topps. At least on the ones with caps - the portrait shots are generally pretty good.

Technically not new pick ups, but case breaks/resubmissions. The Berra was previously graded a BVG 6 and got a PSA 5 while the Musial was previously graded a BVG 5.5 and received a PSA 5. All in all, pretty happy the PSA grades were very close to the BVG grades.

P.S. These are from when I first began dumping my savings into buying cards and didn't understand what I was doing (hence the off-centering) and I was merely buying the grade, not the card! These cards are honestly a bit of an eye sore to me now due to the bad centering, despite how cool they are.

That is a beautiful card this OC qualifier is a joke. Using that standard their own example of a PSA 9 should carry an OC qualifier.

Hello! My first post; I just got back into collecting and have narrowed my focus to some vintage baseball, Basketball, football and hockey! The set I’m looking to put together is 1970 BKB Tallboy, with my second focus being baseball!

Picked this up today! 1960 Fleer

I've been doing a series called "Cardboard Cooperstown" on the blog where I choose the best looking card of every Hall of Famer. As you can imagine, it's hard to write about all these great cards without buying one or two.

For my money this Campy card comes about as close to a perfect card as any. Finally pulled the trigger.

He did: Of course, at the time, he wasn't as big a star as the all-star shortstop he was traded for:

In fact, he wasn't even mentioned on the card back either:

Here's a Brook Treakle color photo card of the Mick:



From a post on CU:

"I've been doing some research over the past two years on these postcards. The photographer's name is Brook Treakle. He passed away in 1991, but he took a lot of photographs for the Peninsula Pilots in the Carolina League; in fact, his photographs were used for the two 1980 TCMA Peninsula Pilots sets with Julio Franco. ... Treakle's trademark is his immaculate hand-printing on the backs of the cards. When he passed away, his mother sold his collection. It was broken-down into three groups: photo postcards, negatives, and autographs. A lot of the autographed items have appeared on eBay. I found out the two collectors who purchased the negatives and the postcards. I don't know what quantities he produced the postcards in, but I have to believe it couldn't be more than a handful. He also took pictures of photographs in books and made postcards out of them, He referred to them as "photo negatives.""

The card has Treakle's immaculate block printing on the back.

I used my ebay bucks to pick up these two 6s for my set. Down to 19 to go.
Thanks, SFMS.

Those are 2 great looking cards that get you that much closer! Must be a great feeling.

Congrats.

Great card. Much more appealing than Hank's Topps products, in my opinion. Kind of a tough number in that regional set, as well. Congrats.

This Aaron had been on my want list forever. Had small pittance left over after taxes and was able to pull the trigger.
