I know I was happy when I sold him over 80 T205 commons.<BR><BR>Lee<BR>

Posted By: <b>Ben</b><p>As soon as I start out on CJ's, Kit Young gobbles up every last one. Check the items he's won in the last month...he's been paying some rediculous prices. <BR><BR>Anyone else forsee a Topps reissue of Cracker Jacks coming up in the near future?

Posted By: <b>Jeff S</b><p>Now that we've had Topps-206 and Topps-205, maybe he'll move on the subcontract for "Topps-low-grade-Old Judge."<BR><BR>Or, better yet, Topps-"graded"-reprint. Then it won't inflate the prices of anything we collect...

Posted By: <b>Hankron</b><p>I would think that Goudeys would be a good route for Topps to take, in part because they're classics and in party because they're relatively easy/inexpensive to buy in bulk. You can even get some low grade Hall of Famers at a decent price.

Posted By: <b>Hankron</b><p>Thinking about it, Fleer came out with a Goudey football issue in 1997, so perhaps Fleer holds rights to the Goudey brand name.

Posted By: <b>Anthony Nex</b><p>Kit Young had a quarter page ad in this weeks SCD to buy Cracker Jacks, '14-15's. Says he's paying 80-100% of book. I did buy a graded ExMt CJ from him a few weeks ago, so he's selling some of them. Based on the couple of auctions he's won it would seem like he's looking for VGish ones.

Posted By: <b>Rob M</b><p>Is it typical that the writing on the reverse of these cards is written upside down as compared with the front of the card?

Posted By: <b>runscott</b><p>Actually, the back is right-side up, but the front is upside-down...

Posted By: <b>Rob M</b><p>Ahhh! Then the one I own is incredibly rare because its front is right-side up, and the back is upside-down!! <img src="/images/wink.gif" height=14 width=14>

Posted By: <b>Adam J. Baxter</b><p><BR>Since the National, Kit Young has also bid on and won quite a few ebay auctions for graded and raw N172 Old Judges. A majority of his winnings for N172's have ended 100.00 and higher on average and most seem to be VG or better. In fact, I think a few were sniped right before closing.

Posted By: <b>Jay Miller</b><p>From what I have heard Kit has a client for whom he is putting a collection of Old Judge together. He seems to have set a limit of about $200/card and doesn't seem to care if the cards are rebacked. Just what we all need, a little more competition.
