View Full Version : Who bought the Feathers

Posted By: <b>matt</b><p>I noticed and bid on (and lost) a 1935<br />National Chicle Beattie Feathers card. <br /><br />The auction ended yesterday, I lost the link, but wondered if the winner reads this board and would let us know if he or she gets it graded, what grade it came to. <br /><br />It looked like a perfecet card, but the picture was a bit out of focus. <br /><br />Does anyone still have that link?<br /><br />Thanks, Matt

Posted By: <b>John S</b><p>Matt,<br /><br />Something just didn't seem right about that card. It might have been that it was out of focus (and that is often a deceptive tactic as well) or that the card had the wrong "look". I can't put my finger on it but I did not bid. Other Feathers will come along...not a particulary difficult card.

Posted By: <b>Richard</b><p>It's only my opinion, and I've only had a handful of Chicles in my collecting life, but it looks alot like the reprints I've seen. Something about the colors being too saturated, at least to me.

Posted By: <b>Matt</b><p>Thanks guys. I am now trying to buy a few Chicles that have been graded and sold by reputable dealers. I<br />I've spent about a year buying 1960's PSA 8 HOFers, but decided to get a couple of these beautiful little card.<br /><br />Then I saw the Feathers, and emailed the seller to guarantee the card and this is what he wrote:<br /><br />"yes this card is not a reprint, I picked it up the other day from a friend at a local show. Buy it now was $399.99 which includes shipping, let me know if you would like to do this<br />Mike"
