Default A T206 Murr'y found at the National

Hi Everyone,

The first thing I must say is thank you to all the staff members of SGC at the National booth. Their dedication and wonderful customer care made it possible for me to show you this card today. They went out of their way to make sure that my card was authenticated & encapsulated, so that I could take it home with me late Sunday afternoon and not have to wait. Thanks again, your willingness to do whatever it takes for your customers is appreciated.

I went to the National with a game plan of buying 6 cards for my collection. Four of which were T206s. Never did I imagine that I would find this card. I hope my post doesn't come across as self-promoting. I just thought that I should share this find with the board (posters & lurkers alike).

Thanks,
Jantz

Nice Jantz! Did the dealer know that it was a variation or did you find it amongst the "commoners"?

Jantz,

Nice find!

There were many potential buyers and dealers that leafed through that book before you found the card. Keep studying your variations, knowledge is the key as you know. Congrats.

Hey Jantz,

Great job. It couldn't have happened to a nicer guy. I enjoyed the time I spent with you this weekend at the show.

Best wishes,

Joe
