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

...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 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!

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!

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.

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

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

Default E121 Cobb

Love the image (especially since I can't swing a CJ) and think this one's a bit under the radar.

I don't think anyone on this site thinks a centered t206 cobb isn't special. Especially your first Cobb. Congrats man. Great cards guys. Ben, that collection is looking nice!!!

Favorite team. Favorite player. Great story behind the issue. Only 27 graded across both TPGs. Best Christmas ever. Thank you, Karen (wifey) and Dan.

Thanks Orlando, Steve, and Chuck! I see so many incredible Cobbs posted on here so it's easy to lose sight of greatness by comparison. Thanks for the nice comments. I absolutely love the card and want to someday pair it with its green counterpart, so here is hoping I haven't totally been priced out of one.

Been wanting to get a Capt. Jack card for some time and never thought it would be a Mayo...my first 19th century card and I like it a lot!!!

Also a couple more T205s...
