Posted By: <b>leon</b><p>So what are the more difficult cards in the set from your experience? I think I see fewer Mascots, Forbes Field and Dreyfuss's than the others....Here is my type I won from Doug Allen on ebay....and I think it was before he was with Mastro.....it was around 9 yrs ago and I got it raw for around $350...<br /><br /><img src="http://luckeycards.com/pd322clarke.jpg">

Posted By: <b>Bruce Babcock</b><p><img src="http://photos.imageevent.com/uffda51/tiptopbreadpirates/Locke.JPG"><br /><br />This guy is a tough one. What kid would have saved Locke, Dreyfuss and the mascot? Even Forbes Field wouldn't be very thrilling to a kid. No wonder that these are the four toughest. For me, Dreyfuss was the toughest and last card found. And he wasn't a HOFer then.

Posted By: <b>robert a</b><p>Bruce,<br /><br />You make a good point. With this set (according to the back of the cards) people were able to obtain the whole set in one shot.<br /><br />But, which cards did people take care of over the years? Probably not the Mascot boy, Forbes, Locke and Dreyfuss which are the tougher examples to find today. <br /><br />I personally think they're all tough. Especially when you compare them to other smaller candy and tobacco sets.<br /><br />Rob

Posted By: <b>Anonymous</b><p>Being from Pittsburgh and having been out to the Forbes Field wall earlier today for the 48th Anniversary of Mazeroski's home run, I love this post!<br /><br />For me Locke was not the hardest card out of the ones I have since I had two at one time as well as two of Gibson. Gibson looks like a friend of mine.<br /><br /><img src="http://www.network54.com/Realm/tmp/1223949952.JPG"> <img src="http://www.network54.com/Realm/tmp/1223949965.JPG"> <img src="http://www.network54.com/Realm/tmp/1223949977.JPG"> <img src="http://www.network54.com/Realm/tmp/1223949991.JPG"> <img src="http://www.network54.com/Realm/tmp/1223950007.JPG"> <img src="http://www.network54.com/Realm/tmp/1223950023.JPG"> <img src="http://www.network54.com/Realm/tmp/1223950045.JPG"> <img src="http://www.network54.com/Realm/tmp/1223950067.JPG"> <img src="http://www.network54.com/Realm/tmp/1223950082.JPG"> <img src="http://www.network54.com/Realm/tmp/1223950116.JPG">

Posted By: <b>Bruce Dorskind</b><p>We have always enjoyed the Pittsburgh Tip Top Set<br /><br />However we have found it quite difficult to secure ultra<br />high grade examples.<br /><br />The current population reports present strong evidence<br />why the search for outstanding examples is so challenging<br /><br />PSA has graded 168 examples -only 6 have achieved a grade of 6<br />with no 7's or 8's- remarkable to find a set which does not have a single<br />example in either of these grades<br /><br />SGC has graded 366 cards - 8 have achieved a grade of 80 and only<br />3 example have been granted an 84.<br /><br />We are fortunate to own some examples of the 17 high grade cards<br /><br />In fact, the March 2008 Goodwin auction was the only event in the past 4 <br />years when High Grade examples were sold on the public auction.<br />As we recall an SGC 84 of Flynn sold for over $11,500 and an SGC 80<br />example sold for $3600. Those are remarkably high prices for a type card<br />of which nearly 550 graded examples are available<br /><br />Bruce Dorskind<br />America's Toughest Want List

Posted By: <b>Bruce Dorskind</b><p><br /><br /><br />Barney Dreyfus, next to the Mascot and Forbes Field is the card<br />where the fewest number of total cards have been graded.<br /><br />Four have been graded by PSA<br />Eleven have been graded by SGC<br /><br />The highest graded card is an SGC 80<br /><br />Our best guess is that there are probably as many ungraded Tip Tops<br />in the world as there are graded ones.<br /><br />That would mean there are probably 500 to 600 ungraded cards<br /><br />If that is the case the total ungraded population for Mr. Dreyfus is<br />likely to 10-20 examples.<br /><br />In total, our best guess is that there are somewhere between 20 and 35<br />examples of Dreyfus- 15 of which have been documented by the grading<br />companies<br /><br />Why do you ask?<br /><br /><br />Bruce Dorskind<br />America's Toughest Want List<br /><br />
