Posted By: <b>David Seaborn</b><p>Well,<br /><br />I've finally had good luck roll my way. I acquired some T206's with paper attached to the back. For many of the cards the paper attached to the back flakes right off quite easily. One of the cards was a Broadleaf. As I flaked away the paper I was shocked when I saw the 460. Just thought I'd share it with the board...<br /><br /><img src="http://www.freephotoserver.com/files/img70785111_75651517.jpg">

Posted By: <b>barrysloate</b><p>That was lot 254 in the Hunt auction. I was looking at that picture and wondering if it was a 460. But from the picture you couldn't tell if the card had paper attached or if the back was missing. That's the advantage of viewing in person.

Posted By: <b>Hal Lewis</b><p>Way to go!<br /><br />Show us the front too, so we can update our checklists of known B-Leaf 460's!<br /><br />Thanks!

Posted By: <b>Hal Lewis</b><p>While your luck is at a high point,,,<br /><br />maybe you can peel the paper off the FRONT of the card and see if Ty Cobb or Honus Wagner is hiding under Gabby!!!<br /><br /><img src="/images/happy.gif" height=14 width=14>

Posted By: <b>David Seaborn</b><p>Thanks Hal but I don't think I'll push it. When I saw that 460 I felt like a little kid again. I only wish something like this happened more often instead of once every couple years!

Posted By: <b>Hal Lewis</b><p>I haven't a "wax pack" in about 20 years...<br /><br />but I know the feeling and would love to experience that "great find" again!<br /><br />Maybe I should buy some of those old GAI slabbed wax packs and try my luck.

Posted By: <b>David Seaborn</b><p>BTW- Here's an Uzit from the same grouping if anybody cares. It had less paper attached and it had actual paper loss on the back (unlike the Broadleaf), but still cleaned up nicely.<br /><br /><br /><img src="http://www.freephotoserver.com/files/img75832213_39146931.jpg">

Posted By: <b>David Seaborn</b><p>Hey Dan, good to hear from you...were you up there?<br /><br />I did get the group for a good price, but the bargains were few and far in between there. I really had to hunt and get lucky (Broadleaf 460) to get anything for a good price.

Posted By: <b>Art M.</b><p>Nice pick up!<br />I had contacted the Hunt auctions last week and was told the Broad Leaf card was Street, catching. I knew then it was a BL460 back but from the picture it looked like paper "loss" on the back, not paper attached!<br />The Uzit player is Wiltse and the lot also included 2 Hindu cards.

Posted By: <b>David Seaborn</b><p>Dan,<br /><br />The Hindus were all brown (that would have been too lucky). They are Ames (throwing), Ames (portrait), Bergen (batting), Coles, Revelle, and two Overall portraits.
