Wow, another sweet one. Hope to one day do a Dr. J Topps run. He was THE guy when it came to playground basketball talk as kid in the '70s. I have been on a bit of a graded stuff run for awhile, but have picked up a couple of nice raw lately so I get you in that area. And like the Hull, that is a really great card.

Nice centering. I have a complete nm-mt set but most of the centering is off.

Icee Bears are very cool, and relatively inexpensive.

I'm all about the presentation and the price, regardless of slab. The Howe is decently centered and crease-free, which is a bit of a stretch with the deckles, and the price was great. This is my current happy card:



Bought it raw at the National and it just got an 8.

On occasion you see a card and you are owning the sucker even if you overpay a bit:



I saw Boom Boom and hadn't ever seen a nicer 67 so I grabbed it even though my normal wheelhouse is nice 6 or 7 caliber for this set.

I saw him play as well and he became a favorite. That's a wonderful card!

I'm currently working on that set (raw though). It's a lot of fun. Lacking 44 of 175.
