Posted By: <b>Tom Hines</b><p>I have not seen one of these threads over here yet and just got this today. Not the best one out there (actually very far from it) but it is just right for me (actually a bit of an up grade, my other is a bit more loved).<br /><img src="http://www.network54.com/Realm/tmp/1187057972.JPG"> <br />Boy do I love this addiction!<br /><br />Tom

Posted By: <b>Anthony</b><p>Nice Campy Ray! That was the first graded card I ever bought, and still one of my favorites.<br />I've been buying mostly pre war baseball and boxing lately, but did pick up a couple of '49 Leaf upgrades this weekend<br /><img src="http://photos.imageevent.com/griffins/leafs/icons/Marion7.jpg"> <img src="http://photos.imageevent.com/griffins/leafs/icons/Untitled-1.jpg">

Posted By: <b>RayB</b><p>Anthony,<br />Those are gorgeous! Especially that Marion's centering.<br />I've just sent off about 7 mid grade raw to PSA on the Leafs so I'll report back on those.<br />Here's hoping this thread has legs. I love seeing the scans.<br />RayB

Posted By: <b>Alan Elefson</b><p>Here are a couple I picked up at a local flea market on Sunday. The coin is an Armour Hot Dog coin (with the usual stain) and the second is a mini record made by Mattel in 1971 (if anyone has a scan of the record player for these records, I would really love to see it).<br />Alan Elefson<br /><img src="http://www.network54.com/Realm/tmp/1187144505.JPG"> <br /><img src="http://www.network54.com/Realm/tmp/1187144534.JPG">

Posted By: <b>Dave Hornish</b><p>Wow, I used to have one of those Mattel Players (Instant Replay was the name I think). The Mays disc, if I remember correctly, was a call of his 500th home run. I think I had the player and 4 discs at one point in 1971. No clue what happened to it but long gone now.

Posted By: <b>Anthony</b><p>This is interesting- got the 2 Leafs today that were posted above, and they look very sharp. Too sharp. On a hunch I ran the certs of all the cards around those 2, and virtually all were '49 Leafs rejected for trimming. What are the chances my two are fine? I'd bet about 0%.

Posted By: <b>Paul S</b><p>Meaning what? Your 2 slipped through the grading process? Not that I know much about the process, but the cards surrounding yours that got rejected cards get/got a cert #? Huh? Set me straight.

Posted By: <b>Anthony</b><p>Paul- take the cert numbers on my 2 cards. Plug those numbers into the cert lookup on psa's data base, and add or subtract to the cert number to get the 10 cards on either side. LOTS of Leafs in those 2 submissions rejected for evid of trim. Dan M. had a post last week on CU about a similar occurance and the discussion was whether a grading company should reject an entire submission if a large % turns out to be trimmed. I think they should once it hits about 30%. Based on my 2 cards that don't look good to me I think they were trimmed but the graders missed them- and if 90% of a submission has trimmed cards I would be inclined to think the rest were as well.<br /> I"m not blaming the seller- he does a lot of consignments, and besides, the whole point of 3rd party grading is that they certify the card as legit. We all want lower grading fees, but you can't have it both ways. Like they say: good, fast or cheap- pick 2.<br /><br />edited to add my name.

Posted By: <b>Paul S</b><p>Thanks for the explanation. I understand it to mean that the rejected cards are assigned the numbers in the grading co. database just for reference purposes.<br />Condolences if yours are in fact trimmed <img src="/images/sad.gif" height=14 width=14> <br />And yes, I'd think a bell going off in a grader's head about 30% of the time in a batch of cards would be enough.

Posted By: <b>Dave Hornish</b><p>An ebay win. I have always seen these in vertical strips but almost always the dyer. These have a texture and backing paper like the issued 77 cloth stickers and are the first I've seen where both players are attached (there are no other players) on the strip. I have one of the thin felt versions of dyer as well but just missed out this week on a 3 card lot with all 3 felt types. Anyway, an interesting little test/proof set or so I've always thought:<br /><br /><img src="http://i130.photobucket.com/albums/p280/dsh46/76toppsclothstripwithbacking.jpg">

Posted By: <b>Paul S</b><p>I like your choices, Dennis. I always thought the '54 Bowman was overlooked. I just started paying attention to their prices lately, and it seems to me that they are somewhat on the rise a little -- at least the better conditioned ones. Possibly they don't get handled as much as more popular sets. I could be wrong. Have you noticed that?

Posted By: <b>dennis</b><p>paul,54 bowman and 58 topps are the least popular of the 50's sets/design(always have been) and both are among my favorites. in our post favorite set of the 50's i don't think either of these are even mentioned. the 58 topps set is, to me anyway,very much the same design as the 33 goudey and i'm the only one to see it.<img src="/images/happy.gif" height=14 width=14> as far as condition i think you can find nice ex 54's because of their unpopularity. where as nice 53 bowmans are costly.

Posted By: <b>identify7</b><p>I agree Dennis. There is plenty of similarity among the Goudey and the '54 & '58T sets.
