to my beloved community,

I have been picking up some Lew Brudette cards as I learned that he became Deaf when he get older so I thought it would be cool to add some of his cards into my Deaf Sports Collection.

I just noticed that there's some SGC stated "Lew Burdette's Collection. It made me very curious on what kind of collection did he had. Is there a list of SGC cards that labeled as "Lew Burdette's Collection"?

Here's an example that I found on eBay.

So curious to see what you guys know about this.

Best,
Danny

I don't know anything about his collection, but I hope someone can shed some light on this. I remember watching him pitch and I loved the Milwaukee Braves.

Danny, I bought the Burdette Archives set from Mears a few years ago & chose 100 cards to be slabbed & pedigreed
by SGC. So I could keep a few as I collect player pedigreed cards.
I didn't have the entire set slabbed.

I sold many in the day incl the Mantle that's on eBay from a diff seller as well as Satchell Paige, Jackie Robinson & so on

Rec'd your Email & I thank you for your order.
Here's the Jackie Robinson & Mear's certificate so all can see how it looks

From the Burdette/Wolt collection ....

I liked this one mainly due to the fact it was not in the 53 Topps Set. The Snider was also pretty cool from what I remember.

Saw him pitch the second game of the 1957 World Series at Yankee Stadium when I was a boy. A great baseball memory.

That is very cool they did that for the flips. One of my other faves is (I think this is what it says) "Collector's Collection".....

Leon over the years I have won many lots from Mears, Hunts & others that were player owned.
And usually when the player passes, the family liquidates the players memorabilia.
W/ proof of the auction lot & COA, SGC has slabbed & pedigreed about a dozen players card collections for me.
I keep some for my collection & market the others to pay for the lots & slabbing.

Here are some that SGC has done for me...

That "Collector's Collection" makes me shake my head every time I see it. If anyone has the story behind it, I'd like to hear it so I can at least stop muttering "what the hell" to myself.

Also, does anyone know if SGC still offers this collection labeling service?

^^^^^^^^^

just a couple months ago I was told my SGC that the cost is an additional $5 dollars a card.
