Ah, Cobb's is the 18th, I thought maybe it had something to do with the gift selection. Some great people born in December. :cool:

Busy trading & buying.....

Upgrade
 
http://imagehost.vendio.com/a/204295...UPGRAD_NEW.JPG

...the new one is the somewhat-faded raw one ; it is better than the old faithful PSA 2 which I've had for 8 or so years ; ( it originally had come back from PSA as a "1" but I knew it was better than that so I cracked it out and re-submitted and then it came back as you see it --a glorious "2" ) ; with the new raw one hey we could be talkin' a 3 or a 3.5.......I bought it last month from "COMC" as a BIN as soon as it was listed because they had titled it as a "1936 Fine Pen National Chicle Premium" ; that happens once in a while but hardly ever with the pricey scarce ones....

Thanks Eddie! It's a big pickup for my factory 42 subset. I let one slip away over a year ago and was finally able to pick one up!

Brian Van Horn 12-03-2017 09:32 PM

A belated Happy Birthday, Paul!

Chris - incredible postcard and glad I could help you add it to your collection!!

MattyC 12-04-2017 09:52 AM

Thanks to Joe T for finding me this beauty. Represents the 1927 team, and the year Ruth hit 60 for my collection, which had been two holes. Plus any Red Sox Ruth image is also always extra cool. Had been seeing the early Ruth stuff take off in price, and was a good time to grab a nice York, before one hit the auction circuit and joined the others. "Affordable pre-Goudey Ruth" is starting to become an oxymoron! ;)

Bicem 12-04-2017 10:22 AM

Great Ruth!

And congrats again Chris, one of the best postcards in the hobby, especially post WW1.

Jobu 12-04-2017 10:44 AM

I love the San Diego piece, I've never seen that one before. Great Ruth too!

Upgrade..'37 Type 5 Mechanical Man
 
http://imagehost.vendio.com/a/204295...5TYPE5_NEW.JPG

...these are "Wide Pens"- R314 Goudey Premiums from the 1937 Type 5 issue of mostly Canadian players but also with about a dozen or so Detroit Tigers from South of the border (but barely so) ....the upgrade is quite a bit faded , and the original is somewhat darkened , undoubtedly from questionable storage practices over the last 80 years.....the true standard normal coloration is a dullish tan/amber matte finish , ; picture something about halfway between these two garish examples....
..Charles Gehringer appears in the types 1 (1936) , 4 , and 5 (both 1937)......Hank Greenberg is the only player to appear in all five versions.....took forever to put together that little mini-master set...

Technically, Detroit is north of the border.

Hey Mac,
Great pick-ups.

Obviously any Kalamazoo Bats is a huge score, with yours sporting a beautiful image.
And the Duffy is gorgeous for the grade.
I don't think Mayo's get the credit they deserve.... What a beautiful set.

Congrats!

This is card is bad ass. I did a bit of reading. Found the final paragraph particularly interesting:

In 1888 the Purnells discovered a group of preachers extolling a man named James Jershom Jezreel as the Sixth Messenger. Jezrel had published three books known as Extracts from the Flying Roll. While the preachers were in Richmond, Benjamin and Mary joined their group, known as "the Visitation Movement", which was started by a woman named Joanna Southcott, the First Messenger (Angel), in 1792. While studying the writings of Jezreel they noticed that the Seventh and last Messenger was soon to be on the scene, which is mentioned in Revelation 10:7. On March 12, 1895, the Purnells announced that the spirit of Shiloh had bonded with them to become the seventh and last messenger.

The House of David was formed by Benjamin and Mary Purnell in 1903 after settling in Benton Harbor, Michigan.[1] Prior to that, the Purnells lived in Fostoria, Ohio and had two children, one of whom died in a firework factory explosion at the age of 16. The Purnells were looked down upon by residents of the city when they decided to forego the funeral due to their beliefs of not having anything to do with the dead.[1]

In 1913, the Israelite House of David began to play competitive baseball and by 1915, they were following a grueling schedule. The House of David became famous as a barnstorming baseball team which toured rural America from the 1920s through the 1950s, playing amateur and semi-pro teams in exhibition games. They were motivated by the need to make money for their families and colony back home and by the opportunity to share their beliefs. The team members wore long hair and beards as they played.

By the late 1920s, needing more skilled players, the House began hiring professionals, the most notable being Grover Cleveland Alexander, Satchel Paige, and Mordecai Brown. Some professional players grew their beards out to show respect towards the God of Israel, while others wore false beards. They were known for their skill and played against some of the greatest teams in the country. The House of David played against Major League, Minor League, independent and Negro League teams, with all the same spirit of competition and fair play. At one point, the community had three separate barnstorming teams touring the country, playing and evangelizing wherever they went. The House of David teams were famous for inventing "pepper" baseball tricks, along the lines of the fancy basketball moves of the Harlem Globetrotters.

Thank you, Orlando, for the great research.

Well, I just Wikipedia'd. Not exactly Jim Chapman-type research, but I learned something new. Congrats on the postcard. I love it.

Rhotchkiss 12-07-2017 08:30 AM

Totally bad ass. What a great story, and best part is now I know why they wear those beards (although I can't understand for the life of me why 20 somethings are wearing them nowadays). That would have been an awesome team to watch, but who gets the start, Brown or Paige? I'll take the latter

It's neat to see all the great stuff everyone has picked up this month. After a couple of decades searching for the right piece for a Bill Dahlen autograph, I finally found one that's suitable. If you're into HoF autographs or just baseball autographs in general, have a look at CooperstownExpert.com. It's got this Dahlen piece and autographs of all but three HoFers who debuted in the big leagues since 1903.

Not a big $ card, but finally got the last Sovereign for my Providence set. Harder to find than I expected.

why the MK designation on on that Matty, Bob? on the back?

Yes, on the back was a purple stamp of “Tom Doran”, it did not matter to me (obviously)

RedsFan1941 12-08-2017 09:41 PM

don't blame you a bit. that stamp is easy to ignore

Was able to make a cash/trade deal with a gentleman in downtown Orlando last night before the Magic game. Crease-free and presents better than most other SGC/PSA 3's in my collection. Obviously I'm thrilled

pawpawdiv9 12-09-2017 08:26 AM

Dan, Super-impressed, I'd figured everyone snatched them up and stored them away.

Thanks Chris! Believe me I had to sell and trade some great cards to make it happen (thanks Peter and Scott) so I appreciate the validation

Congrats on the Ruth! One of my all time favorite cards.

Finally...
 
http://imagehost.vendio.com/a/204295...TOMLEY_NEW.JPG

..finally able to add a mostly clean fairly unwrinkled tackhole-free still-glossy R311 Jim Bottomly Bottomley...for some reason this one is more difficult than most R311's....kids in 1936 might not have considered him a big deal anymore...
