Probably not the kind of card your looking for, but easily my favorite player ever.

Picking just one is hard. Most of my favorites are Prookies. This one is certainly high on the list since it is definately a rookie from his first year in the majors and SUPER hard to find.

I don't think this has ever been seen before. It's a 1936 The Sporting News Stamp of Joe D......There was a set of these put out in that year, similar to the other series such as the Detroit stamps and Pittsburgh stamps........regards

That one is AWESOME! What the heck is a 1935 Pebble Beach? Never seen or heard of one. Is the back blank? Any info on it would be great. Congrats on a great card (even sans auto).

Daryle, GREAT card. I was looking to buy the M101-4 in the Legendary Auction but it was over my limit on the 1st day!

Phil, great Maranville RC!!

Some great cards on our table at the 1980 Cooperstown show run by Don Flewelling!
Kaline rookiwe's nice! Notice Hall's Nostalgia in the back with Walter and Joel! Barry Halper bought a Christy Mathewson game from the guys across from us.

Great picture, Bill! I love any old pictures of early card shows! The picture of the Halls booth is fantastic - Walter looks just the same 30 years later!

Thanks for sharing...
