Default What is your "White Whale"?

What is your "white whale"?

My white whale is a 1956 parkhurst football card #33 of calvin jones. calvin was from my home town, steubenville, ohio. calvin played football at the university of iowa, from 1953 to 1955, and was an all-american. he was the winner of the 1955 outland trophy, the first african-american. he also appeared on the 7th issue of sports illustrated. calvin was tragically killed in an airplane crash on december 9th, 1956 returning from the canadian football league all-star game. the university of iowa dedicated their 1957 rose bowl game victory to calvin and his number 62 is one of two numbers retired by the university, the other being nile kinnick. if there is someone out there willing to sell this card please contact me.

thanks rich

This cabinet photo has been eluding me for years...sorry it's so small, but that's the only scan of it I have.

Also looking for this postcard as it is the only commercial Nebraska Indian postcard that I know of that I don't have....I do know of a rppc of the team, but the owner wants too much for it.

Looking for Nebraska Indians memorabilia, photos and postcards

Simple Boston Store Joe Jackson. Fills a hole in my Jackson and Boston Store sets. Not many in the popular reports and haven't seen one for sale in the last 3-5 years.

Default Boston Store Joe...

James - I saw a Boston Store Joe at the National. (I don't remember where, but I remember it like it was yesterday, as I noticed the black jersey & Pants) This card was in vg or vg-ex best of my recollection residing in a PSA Holder. It may have been a display for an upcoming auction with one of the big auction houses... (Stay tuned)

I actually made a mental note to self to pick one up down the road! It is an attractive card for sure.

Best of Luck,

Collector of Nashville & Southern Memorabilia

E107 Noodles Hahn....last one needed to complete "no no" set... well from 1900 on, and one more less on the 20 win set.

Edited to add found an earlier M101-1
