Hi guys, I just wanted to share a few of my finds from the last couple of months. Over the summer I went to a ďcity wideĒ garage sale. I came across a seller who had some old fish tobacco cards so I asked if he had any baseball cards. Turns out he used to be an antique dealer in the 80s and still had quite a few cards. We finally meet up In December and to my surprise he had a 1907 Wolverine News Cobb batting. We agreed on a price and I was ecstatic to acquire it. 2 weeks later I see an add for some old Tiger programs. Owner tells me he also had a stack of Wolverine postcards. Unfortunately he sold them already but put me in contact with the buyer. After about a month of negotiating I finally was able to acquire the stack which included another Cobb batting along with several team cards, a Crawford, Jennings, and 12 other commons! I recently got them graded, one Cobb came back a PSA 3 while the other SGC authentic (still not convinced its altered just has a funky cut on top). So in the 5 years Iíve been collecting Iíve never even seen a Wolverine news postcard and in 2 weeks I was lucky enough to buy 2 Cobbs! I figured the other Cobb postcard collectors might appreciate seeing these.

Amazing garage sale finds Joe!
Finding 2 Cobb Wolverines is crazy, such tough cards!

Wish I could find a garage sale like that in my neck of the woods!

Nice haul! Love those Wolverine News PCs! No Wolverine News Portraits of Cobb in the group?? That's too bad. But such a sick group! Love it!

Amazing find! If Payne, Siever or Downs happen to be among the commons and you have an interest in selling one, I'd be interested. Great cards!
