I'm likely in the minority but I like the 101 much better due to grade.

Nice card Peter, favorite card from the n300 set along with the ED. Don't see those come around all that often.

The National Chicle Earhart card has proven to be surprisingly difficult to find a decent copy for a card that has over 100 graded examples.

I love history, and Earhart is one of my favorite people to read about. She only has five cards that were issued prior to her disappearance, and the National Chicle card is the only one that is even semi common None of the other options have even 10 graded copies on the PSA pop. chart.
I literally was looking for some of her stuff the other day, and I had never searched for her cards, but was curious what was out there. I love history -- and have always sort of checked out astronaut stuff on the fringes, but have yet to buy anything there, either.

This Earhart is not particularly tough as far as I know.

Did someone say astronauts?? Here are a couple of unusual ones, of Yuri Gagarin and Valentina Tereschkova (first woman in space) from a 1969 German or Belgian issue.

Awesome to see some other Earhart fans/collectors on here. Of the seven or eight cards she has from the 1930s, the Carreras Ltd. card is the one I see most often. I had forgotten in my post on the first page of this thread that the Carreras card was also issued prior to her disappearance. The National Chicle card has four times as many cards as the Carreras card on the PSA population report, yet I see the Carreras card much more frequently. Any of her other 1930s cards beyond those two are pretty tough.

I just purchased a 1938 Earhart Mars Confections card a couple days ago that I hope to receive sometimes this week. PSA has only graded eight of that card and SGC has only graded four of them.

For such an iconic/famous figure, Earhart's cards are surprisingly affordable (at least other than her Heinz F277 Aviators card). That is why I love collecting non-sports.

I always look on eBay to see what Earhart stuff gets listed. Here is a link to her PSA set registry: The owner of the registry in the link is a member here.

https://www.psacard.com/psasetregist...shedset/141443

The 1933 Orami Heroes of the Air card looks like such a cool card, with Earhart looking at a model plane with a young girl. But PSA has only graded three of that card, and I have never seen one for sale/auction. There appears to be an error in the images, however. The 1938 Mars Confections card depicts a signed Earhart check instead of the correct card.

One of the other Earhart items that shows up from time to time and is pretty cool comes from the Smithsonian. In the 1970s, the Smithsonian reskinned several of the famous planes in their possession and made small pieces of the plane's fabric available to the public. Now, it seems amazing that the Smithsonian would actually do such a thing. But some of the Earhart samples from the Lockheed Vega she used to cross the Atlantic in 1932 do show up from time to time on eBay and typically sell for a few hundred dollars.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Smithsonian...gAAOSwlBhanugS

I am not an autograph guy at all, but Earhart was a prolific signer. Her autograph is not rare, just expensive. She would frequently takes covers with her on many of her famous trips, autograph them, then sell them to the public after the trip ended. At some of her speaking engagements, she would give give brief plane rides to members of the crowd or well-connected patrons. The autographed cards also show up from time to time on eBay and will list the person's name and what number the person was in line for the chance to take a brief ride with Earhart that day.

https://www.skinnerinc.com/auctions/2764B/lots/24

It is has been speculated that one of the reasons Earhart left her trailing antenna behind in Miami on her ill-fated final flight was because she did not want to carry the nine-pound antenna along. She was obsessed with saving weight on the plane, yet carried hundreds of covers with her that were postmarked/autographed during her flight and were contracted to be sold for a total of $25,000 once the around the world flight was completed. Not taking the trailing antenna with her greatly reduced Earhart's ability to communicate with the Coast Guard cutter Itasca when she was unable to locate Howland island. She also did not have adequate knowledge of Morse Code, and repeatedly showed no interest in learning the skill.

These are awesome. I am a big fan of Gus Grissom, and am so intrigued by his story. I've almost pulled the trigger on some of this stuff, but I am so scared of opening pandora's box on an entirely different line of collecting when I haven't finished my first set of collecting I'm focused on.

Just arrived today, from most recent Leland's. 1916 RPPC, formerly owned by the Foster estate, with hand-written note by Rube's sister. And while Foster appears on several earlier Team PCs - I even own a 1911 Chicago American Giants, (which will now become my official Pete Hill card, lol) - I believe this may be Foster's earliest INDIVIDUAL appearance on any type of "card." I might be wrong about that? Regardless, I'm extremely happy right now!!

Default Signed T201 Cicotte

Just picked up this awesome signed T201 of Eddie Cicotte. Couldn't believe it showed up on eBay last week. Brings my total signed T201 poses to 9 (on 8 cards, with Doyle and Meyers dual signed). I really love the look of the T201s with signatures on them.

T201 Cicotte Signed PSA DNA

Will join these guys...

Why did PSA label it "Trading Card" instead of T201? Just curious.

Great card by the way!

No idea ó seems lazy. Plan to cross it over to SGC, which holds the balance of my signed T201 collection. They will surely correct the oversight!

The Foster and Cicotte are amazing. Congrats guys!

This is a little bit of March stuff and some I got today. Strayed a bit from my usual focus to get these. I remember reading about Babe Adams as a young kid and when I started collecting T206 I was surprised when he didn't have one. I've wanted to pick up a few of his cards but never really made it a priority. These three kind of fell into my lap recently. Also had to snag the cool mis-cut Broad Leaf thanks to a buddy (the colors are insane in person) and Matty's toughest T205 back. And quite possibly my favorite T206 as well.

Congrats! I believe you are correct about it being Fosterís earliest individual card. I probably should have gone one more bid, but Iím glad to see that it made itís way into your very nice collection and that itís in the Net54 family.

I've wanted to pick up a few of his cards but never really made it a priority. These three kind of fell into my lap recently. Also had to snag the cool mis-cut Broad Leaf thanks to a buddy (the colors are insane in person) and Matty's toughest T205 back. And quite possibly my favorite T206 as well.
You out bid me on the Matty but I am glad to see you got it. That Quinn is sick. If either ever need a new home let me know

Love that Foster Ken, very nice.

Finished my set yesterday after basically 6 years of kicking the idea around and finally taking the plunge. Card 24 was from Kevin Struss in the Matty and then the WaJo yesterday in a nice person-person trade at a McDonalds that had a transistor blow up while we were there. Pretty stoked!

Here's the full set:

I absolutely love the "poster" you made. I am going to have to steal that idea, and maybe even take my cards to a printer to get it done right. Wow!!

Thanks and good luck. When I produced the CJ, T3, etc. poster I had a professional editor clean up my draft before print. Costs have gone up significant so be prepared to spend around $60 and do not take it to Kinkos, use a profession printing company.

Pleasantly surprised with this one:
