Default Thanks to BuyThatCard

That Hornsby looks nice in the binder page.

Here's a Gillespie batting. I need to check, I think I only need a RHHH to finish the run. It has taken me longer to do this player run than I thought it would. Ten years on...

Thanks, Jay. I figured the OJ collectors would know "right hand head high". I say "right hand held high" for the Connie Mack, which is one of my favorite cards.

Recent LOTG pickups: So excited to acquire something period of HOFer Henry Chadwick! My HOF career-contemporary number now stands at 316/329. Also, picked up the Bill Dahlen because 1) Speculation of his eventual induction, and 2) My collection REALLY needed a Turkey Red - my very first. :-)

Cool pick up Leon.

May seems to be a Wagner month. Thanks to Tim, Bob, and Dan, each of which is a board member, for these cards. I am especially over-the-moon about the Newsboy.

Jerome, that's awesome that you picked up a Tin Top to finish your Nashville collection. There are four Tin Tops on my Jersey City want list that I will likely never acquire. Your pick up gives me some hope though.

Thanks all. And thatís a great looking e90-1 Matty!

I took a Chance on this card at Goldin tonight. Admittedly, likely over-graded but very tough combo.

Starr is a "once in awhile" condition upgrade.

Last month I finished trades with two great guys, Bryan and Val.

We kicked around both trades for years (we were in no rush!) -- Bryan made my day with this pretty Red Cross as he knows how much I love the set. Val and I had worked hard to find just the right trade -- WaJo for WaJo -- for the Victory. He filled a key spot in my WaJo hands-at-chest back run. I am now only missing the BL460, T215-1, and T215 Pirate to complete the project.

Thank you guys!

Default Doc Steen Collection: Signed M101-2 Nap Lajoie

Can't believe I was able to pull this absolute stunner down from Heritage last night. Although not identified by Heritage in its description, this signed supplement comes from the Doc Steen collection, which made its way to auction on May 16, 2015. I now have 18 of the possible 53 from that collection.

From the original auction in 2015:
Dr. Clarence G. "Doc" Steen, began collecting baseball autographs in 1910 and he collected his entire life passing away in 1965. Doc Steen sent players photos to sign, most in the form of these premiums, storing them carefully and out of the light. After his passing these signed photos were placed in a safety deposit box where they remained for decades. As a result of this careful handling and storage the majority of his collection are signatures that rate 8-10 on a scale of 1-10.

Lajoie M101-2

Absolutely stunning Nap item! The signature is amazing on that one. And so is the provenance!

Default Mail day from SGC

Submitted at Strongsville, and arrived today. Reasonably pleased with the grades as well. Obaks are just wonderful.

Ryan, I had that T214 Victory in my WaJo collection for roughly 25 years. But, being a lover of the advertising on the backs of cards, the amount of paper loss on the back "bothered" me for all those years. Had the paper loss been much less, I would not have parted with it. Upon learning how much progress Steve had made with his back run of the WaJo pitching pose, I felt this card belonged in his collection moreso than it did mine.

Another factor in my decision is that I am a much bigger fan of real-photo, black-and-white cards than I am of the colorful, artist-created cards (except for the T206 WaJo portrait, the best looking pre-War card ever made). So, I'm happily working on back runs of WaJo's 1916, 1917, and 1921-22 real-photo issues.

I am now only missing the BL460, T215-1, and T215 Pirate to complete the project.

Thank you guys!
Steve, great Walter pickup. Someday We'll have to meet up and photograph the Walter and Gabby Street back runs together. We can reunite Walter with his catcher.
