September Pickups

Well, I was hoping to put these in the August pickups, but they still haven't come. I finally decided to use the scans from the auction. I'm sure they will come soon.

Holy F!

How?????????

orly57 09-02-2017 06:59 PM

Holy F&@$ is right Jeff. Holy F&@$ indeed. For those of you who don't collect PCs, there are three known specimens of this card. This PSA 6, of course, being the highest graded by far.

edjs 09-02-2017 07:09 PM

Orly and Jeff, thanks for the holy f's, but they aren't that great! Oh, you mean....lol

Jeff, that is a great, great PC.

clydepepper 09-02-2017 07:09 PM

Jeff- don't let the guy mess with you...that's a pretty good pickup.

Not a big deal, It is because I paid by check to receive the 3% discount. I send the check from California, it takes about 4 days to get to NJ, then Al has a 7-10 day wait on checks before shipping (I recommended that to him after he got stiffed on several thousand from a guy in Nevada).

Neal, that is a spectacular image of Speaker. Congrats on a beautiful card.

Factor a postal holiday in there as well! We're pretty well caught up on shipping, we've been shipping most PayPal and credit card payments the same or next day (depending on the time of day the payment is received), and I can tell you that your package is right here next to me, to be delivered to the Post Office first thing in the morning. You should have it Thursday! :)

Its not pretty nor was it cheap. However, I am happy to have finally completed my Series 4 set with this pickup! I had been stuck on 48/49 for almost two years until this one popped up. Thank you David!

Congrats Jason! It seems like only yesterday that you began collecting T210s! Hope you don't mind my asking, but how many of the eight T210 series have you now completed?

Very nice Jason, completing a full Series is worthy of its own thread. Congrats!

Wow that Horner is amazing! The clarity on those is just jaw dropping. Love the hair with the parting down the middle.

From the same time period....Here's an item that after extensive research have not seen another (would be very interested to know if anyone else has). Didn't even see one in the Dreier collection. Measuring 2'9" x 13" x 9.5" this Cracker Jack crate was used to ship 100 cartons from the Rueckheim Bros. & Eckstein factory in Chicago. Stamped on the top "C.F. Narhold Co Cleveland" and "Neumeyer & Beach C-O Park Chippewa Lake OH" both candy manufacturers and creameries and were likely business destinations for the sweet confections during the life of the crate. I believe these crates were used to deliver the cartons and possibly unloaded and brought back to the factory to re-use. The wood is very light weight which makes it even more remarkable that this survived 100+ years. On all sides you have red and black writing that is has been stamped into the wood. The metal hinges are functional but missing some screws and both hinges and screws look old to the period. Would love to know if anyone knows anything more about these crates!

orly57 09-06-2017 10:24 PM

AJ, that is fantastic. Goes well with your original CJ box too. What a unique and beautiful item. Congrats man.

ajjohnsonsoxfan 09-06-2017 10:28 PM

Thanks Orlando!

Jobu 09-06-2017 10:45 PM

Nice AJ!

That sure is a lot of packaging for a single cardboard box of Cracker Jacks -- maybe the shipper now works for Christies? :D

Seriously though, that is a great display you have.

I wonder if I can find anything out about these. My fiancee is from Seville, OH, which is right next to Chippewa Lake. In fact it's a 2 minute drive from her house to the actual Chippewa Lake, which used to be a booming lake with an amusement park and everything. Her family has lived in that area for A LONG time.

Excellent, excellent pickup.

It's almost inconceivable to find a T205 that centered. Where are you finding these?

Thanks Sam my man. I am always on the lookout for well centered copies to upgrade to or to fill a (still very large hole) in my collection. After recent pickups I think I am around +/- 85 in total of the 208 base set.
There was a spate of ebay auctions last night which this came from....all I chose had pretty decent centering or colors etc....here are some more of them....and they were all below my max bids, some well below.

Just got back from the Long Beach Expo. Great to finally meet Mark and Sal. Saw some great stuff at the Memory Lane booth, a Cobb Lucky 7, Ruth bat and card, some high end T206 Cobbs. Small enough to be personable, big enough to have nice stuff. And if this Southworth isn't just the cutest thing?
