Well, maybe we can't have a monthly pick-up thread here as they do on the main board, but how about an annual one?

From the Legacy auction last night, I picked up a lower-end Copes set. I had a chunk of the set already, but couldn't resist picking up this set. I don't have them in hand yet, but the description says most have better appearances than the grades, due to some issues on the backs.

Thanks Joe, it jumped a bunch in extended bidding but I was happy to get it for what I paid!

Nice pick up....still wish I wouldn't have sold my complete set...but I could not pass up the money I sold it for a few years ago. Of course at that time it was the finest set as well, my how things have changed.

You really did not pay much for the set and at that price it = about $40 a card, so how can you go wrong?

I have been slower on the golf stuff lately, picked up a couple of F series ogdens but that is about it. I have been working more on my 1957 Topps Football, 1970 Topps baseball and 191 Fleer football sets.

Too bad upper deck does not decide to make another current golf set. I am itching for something I can go to the store and buy.

Thanks Dave - it actually equated to $20 per card for the Copes set, so even better!

I think I overpopped on this, just a random bid in Tommy's honour.

some raw pick ups all sent to psa today!

5 Baines Golf Ball cards and one Baines shield Golf card. - First of these I have ever owned. They look pretty nice for being 114 years old, curious how psa grades these...guess I will find out soon.

A trio of Ogdens....2 F Series and one 1901 Guinea Gold

1947 Rich's Coffee

African Tobacco Joe Louis, Babe Ruth, and Jesse Owens.

will show you scans when I get em back. Hopefully psa is not too backlogged!

I got the following card from a fellow board member based on a WTB post I made:

http://i486.photobucket.com/albums/rr225/t2069bk/Golf/TA001.jpg

The story was what made it. Expecting to pay or even give away my modest golf collection for the card I wanted....the member offered the card as a freebie or I could send anything I wanted- they would trust me. I think that is what floored me.

Then just to compound the issue- the first offering I sent got lost in the mail (and being the compulsive neat freak I am- I already threw out the tracking and insurance slips).

I am happy to say the new cards I sent were delivered this week and I might even be able to meet a fellow board member out on the course this summer! By far this has been the most positive experience I have been a part of in 20 years of collecting cards. Thanks again Joe!!!!!!

Fresh Back from PSA!

My 1947 Rich's Coffee...PSA 8
2 F Series 1902 Ogdends Both PSA 4's
a 1901 Ogdens Tom Morris PSA 5.

I have a PSA 4 1901 Morris that will now be for sale. If interested you can check it out on the set registry as I have a photo of it scanned in.

I will listen to serious offers but I do realize that ebay may be a better avenue as the graded Ogdens seem to get some big attention there, and I cannot remember the last Graded Morris I saw from the 1901 Issue being offered.

What's going on with the backs that those got 2's? The fronts look awesome!

bijoem
04-19-2011, 08:23 AM
Scott -

the fronts look like '7's to me.

the backs have a little bit of glue stain / residue (not really bothersome at all / at least to me).

I guess they were glued in albums and kept nice for the last 80 years.

scooter729
04-19-2011, 08:47 AM
Great pickup regardless of the technical grade!

Did you end up getting the whole set, or just the golf cards? I think I remember the whole set of those (all graded 2's with gorgeous fronts) in a recent auction, but can't recall the details.

famousgolfers

Nice pickup Joe. Those Rogers Peet cards are tough! Did you win the whole set? If so, I might be interested in some of the other cards from the set.
Thanks,

Jason -

I did not win the set. I know the person who did - and he knew that I collect golf cards and was kind enough to offer them to me.

If you want to PM me the cards you are interested in, I will relay the message to my friend (and then you two can work out whatever you work out directly with each other).


edit: thanks Scott.

I guess it pays to know people...I would have paid a LOT for the Hagen and Jones even in a 2 grade

bijoem
04-19-2011, 07:44 PM
Dave -

Just casually observing other sales / auctions - - It seems there have been many more Jones cards offered than Hagen. Actually - I don't remember a Hagen being offered

I know they are all tough.... but is the Hagen even tougher than the Jones (based on your experience)?

famousgolfers
04-19-2011, 09:01 PM
Joe,

I have seen 3 of each:
- Hagen's (PSA 2, SGC 84/7, ungraded EX)
- Jones (PSA 2, SGC 80/6, PSA 6)

The SGC population report also shows a Hagen SGC 40/3 and a Jones SGC 50/4, so I guess I sort of know of 4 of each.

I don't know what the PSA population is on the Jones or Hagen. My membership has expired.

just arrived from the recent Green Jacket auction.....


(scans and descriptions fron the auction house)


Item 1 - (one of my all-time favorite players)....

Gary Player Signed Masters Caddie Coveralls Nameplate
Presented here is a great item commemorating Gary Player and The Masters Tournament.
This is an exact replica "PLAYER" nameplate from the white coveralls famously worn by caddies at the Masters.
Gary Player has beautifully signed the nameplate.

Item 2 - (this thing is huge!)

2004 US Open Street Pole Banner
Actual New York Street Light Banner
Advertising 2004 U.S. Open
This original light pole banner hung on a New York street light near Shinnecock
in the weeks leading up to the 2004 U.S. Open. It measures approximately
2' x5' It has a different graphics on each side, one of which contains the famed
Shinnecock Indian logo.

Item 3 - (very cool)

Pair of 2002 US Open Street Pole Banners
Actual New York Street Light Banners
Advertising 2002 U.S. Open
These two original banners hung on New York street lights near Bethpage
Black in the weeks leading up to the 2002 U.S. Open, which was won by Tiger

34" x 42"

Item 4 - (jaw dropper - IMO!)

Team, which included Walter Hagen, Gene Sarazen, Horton Smith, Paul
Runyan, Craig Wood, Ed Dudley, Johnny Farrell, Olin Dutra, Leo Diegel,
Denny Shute. Also accompanying the team photo is Price Edward. This large

Sarazen. This photo measures 12" x 16".

Nice pickups. I especially like the picture. Are you going to have it framed? That would look great in a nice matte.

Thanks Jason.

I recently picked up a big (14" x 17") art/photo portfolio binder.

Its like one big photo album.

Instead of framing, I am putting that photo and the others I have in that 'album'. It is fun to turn the pages and enjoy the photos that way.

I have a psa set registry for the world golf hall of fame over on the PSA site, take a look...it is ever increasing and ever growing...Sadly they will not grade the Mueller cards...boo.

Golf History
05-12-2011, 10:00 PM
Great cards Tim. I always loved that close up photo of Old Tom.

@Dave It is strange to me that they do not grade the Muellers. I always liked the Muellers and it would be great if they could have been updated and remained current. The costs involved, especially with a high profile artist like Bart Forbes, are pretty high. If I remember correctly that set originally retailed in the $150-200 range.

Tim, thanks for the kind words, I have a couple of new ones I need to update with PSA, of course this set gets added to all the time, so trying to find the right cards to put in the set is sometimes challenging as well.

Jason, thanks for the TT GRay it arrived today!

I have 111 cards at PSA right now, a ton of ogdens golfers and boxers, a complete set of 1911 Wills Boxing, and a few other odds and ends. I also have some items that I have bought recently both graded and ungraded that should be arriving any time, so I will add some scans as soon as I have them in hand.

talking of great pick-ups - I have submitted my first EVER batch of 35 cards to be graded - all cards I have picked up this year. Well over 20 of them are Ogdens - and all look good to me + some nice other golf cards. My heart was in my mouth as I was posting them from NZ to the PSA (but I know they have arrived) - cant wait for the grades to be posted. (i also threw in 2 1939 Play Ball cards (6& 7 both HOFs) - which I picked up for next to nothing from a uk auction - they looked MINT to me. I will post grades - and maybe some scans when I get them back.
I enjoy reading the treads Ian Wagstaff (NZ)
