View Full Version : Who needs (another) Comiskey? Really nice N172, however.

Posted By: <b>Vognar Julie</b><p>In my minsicule collection I have 3 Comiskeys. An N172 (standing, "Capt. St. Louis Browns"), Scrapps (real nice) and a 1914 Cracker Jack. I keep the Cracker Jack with my Black Sox cards and photos because, as is generally, though not universally accepted, without Comiskey, there probably wouldn't have been any Black Sox.<BR><BR>These three cards fell into my lap. It's as easy to avoid Comiskeys as it is Chases, which means damned hard. Even the Goodwin Round Album has a full-page portrait of him (looking very much like a choirboy). And, whatever SGC or PSA says, I see that Comiskey portrait offered by BMW in every other auction brochure I get. I have read and reread the sentence BMW wrote about the scracity of the card, and gramatically, it seems to me to mean it's scarce. Hogwash!<BR><BR>ON THE OTHER HAND, that's a very beautiful N172. A not-especially-desirable HOFer on a truly fine N172? At least $3000. Take the money and run, BMW!<BR><BR> Julie
