Posted By: <b>scott brockelman</b><p>I don't normally post much in the pics thread, but I thought I would share what cost me a huge piece of the most important part of my collection, to trade for the opportunity of a lifetime perhaps.<br /><br />By posting the pic the entire board may be able to enjoy the card as much as I hope to.<br /><br />Scott<br /><br /><br /><img src="http://members.auctionhawk.com/sb1/3807840-img477.jpg">

Posted By: <b>MikePugeda</b><p>OK Scott,<br /><br />Now I'll trade you all of my unopened wax boxes from the late 1980's and the 1990's for that Wagner. <br /><br />After some consideration, I will also throw in my entire Starting Lineup collection.<br /><br />Congrats Scott! You have attained a goal most of us can only dream about.<br /><br />Mike

Posted By: <b>Ted Zanidakis</b><p>Thanks for the back info on your Wagner.<br /><br />If you don't mind my asking.....does Wagner make your T206 set a 524-card set ?<br /><br />Best regards,<br />TED Z<br /><br />

Posted By: <b>DMcD</b><p>Way to go, guy! Never would have guessed you had a deal like that cooking when we were looking over my dupes and beaters. You appeared pretty much normal. Guess now you'll need to throw on some seller's commish on my ratbag Newsy Lalonde to pay for the cat food you'll be living on.<br /><br />That card may be a 2 but it's got the eye appeal of a 10. Rounded corners, <i>shmounded</i> corners. Congratulations, Scott!<br /><br />Edited to say: Nice fun bunch of pick-ups, Sean. Guess you're probably feeling like you just got nuked. It's all good.

Posted By: <b>bcornell</b><p>This might qualify as the single biggest card trade ever... I got to hold the card - it's a beauty for a 2. That's the correct grade, btw - it has a vertical crease that's more visible from the back. Much, much nicer than the PR ones that sold in Heritage and Mastro recently.<br /><br /><br /><br />Bill

Posted By: <b>Jeff Lichtman</b><p>Scott, awesome card and an awesome image for the grade. What a big difference between a 1 and 2. Now is it true that going forward B & L auctions will be charging bidders 200% BPs? <img src="/images/happy.gif" height=14 width=14>

Posted By: <b>Michael Steele</b><p>Geez Scott, what a card and pickup and done without lights, camera and action the way it used to be. Very refreshing.<br /><br />I was at your table yesterday afternoon consigning to your upcoming auction, trying to work a small potatoes purchase and had no idea you had worked this deal.<br /><br />Congrats on a great looking pick up!

Posted By: <b>Joann</b><p>How. Cool. Is. THAT! OMG. Good for you Scott. How fun.<br /><br />I'm right with whoever it was upthread that said it's cool that a nice Wagner was part of a trade and not outright purchase. Something about that strikes me sentimentally or ... something. Like the school yard meets the hedge fund, or some such paradox.<br /><br />J

Posted By: <b>Marc S.</b><p>and what a phenomenal way to obtain a Wagner -- trade for it. No commissions, no competitive egos -- just two hard-core collectors duking it out to get fair value for their prized possessions -- with both coming away feeling that they've won. If that does not summarize all that is great within the hobby, then what does?<br /><br />Congratulations.

Posted By: <b>t206museum</b><p>We have acquired a t206 OM double bar overprint back from a family who found a Old Mill collection from their attic. We were told the collection includes 150+ T210 and 100+ T206 with pure Old Mill backs. It also has a few Old Mill tobacco packs (the family isn't sure those packs are unopened or not but they will check). Here is a quick pic from our digital cam and will get a better scan once a scanner is accessible.<br /><br /><img src="http://www.network54.com/Realm/tmp/1217866359.JPG">

Posted By: <b>Denny Walsh</b><p>Scott, Please take No offense to my writings about your newest family member <img src="/images/happy.gif" height=14 width=14><br /><br />Here goes! <br /><br />Out of the ashes of the Net54 people arose a Phoenix that would not be denied. His conjuring awareness during the haggling of a Lifetime would soon become the pinnacle of any cardboard collecting beings existence. When the Phoenix Rose to its Completed Awakens, there stood a man with an emotional surge that only Exhausted Screams from Diamond Head Peak could satisfy ones newest addition to his life & Family of Cards. <br /> <br />Your breathing must be somewhat tasking at times, but the extra skip found in your walk has got to be overwhelmingly pleasing to the hobbyist's soul that resides within you!<br /><br />Congratulations Scott, I am very much inspired NOT to Ever give up the hobby that I truly love.<br /><br />"Thank You!"<br /><br />Life's Grand,<br />Denny Walsh <br /><br /><br><br>Life's Grand,<br />Denny Walsh

Posted By: <b>fred</b><p>the wagner might be the greatest modern trade in history. i'm sure sure someone may have traded a bunch of mantles or pre-war cards along time ago but this card at this time i would think would rank pretty high as being the bigest trade.<br /><br />nice card and great pick ups by all, i couldn't make it tot he show but its nice to see what everyone buys/trades for.
