Default Show a card that makes you happy!

All this talk about "investing" and such...let's see some cards!!!!

I love this donlin pose...I fell in love with the t213-2 card with the .300 hitter caption when I was younger...I eventually sought it out and went for a coupon run. This t213-3 OP is the icing on the cake for me!

Pete...I always liked the .300 caption too. Eventually I picked up a messed-up one, but with the naked eye it looks like '.200'. For a while I thought I had a special card, but under higher magnification it is just a damaged caption. The card still makes me

I bet everyone has a card that when they look at it, it makes them happy. What other card for me, of course?

Before anyone asks, I don't own it, but seeing it reminds me that there is always more to be found, and that makes me happy.

This PSA 8 card is about five times nicer than the one I dreamed of having from my local card shop at age seven. You can't not smile at that.

At the risk of facing Frank's rapier-like wit...

While it's not a REAL card, my little brother made this card of me when he was like 8 or 9 years old. Almost 50 years later, I STILL have it and we STILL laugh about it!

It's my AVATAR! (I'm the one with the rod!) I think that you will recognize where he got his idea for it...

Enjoy & Cheers!

When I was a kid they would have called the condition of this Huggins vg/e.

Also here's a .300 batter card with Nap Rucker on top. Rucker played for Brooklyn 1914-16 the years of production, so it doesn't help with the year. My guess is the Donlin NY was issued in 1914, and the .300 batter in 1915 and 16...

The sight of this card always makes me happy as I picked it up at the very start of my vintage card journey, and it taught me perfection is in the eye of the beat-up beholder.

Nice as well, and mine was from 1981 and also around $2.00 (I got 5 1910 era HOF cards for $11 at the first show I ever went to, and actually the first table just inside the door...I spent all the money I had within the first couple of minutes! I was destined to collect vintage).

I guess $2.00 was the going rate for T206 Mattys back then.

Card #15 in Series 1, it was in the first packs that came out in 1967. Reminds me of those chilly Minnesota April days when we couldn't wait for the weather to get just a little warmer so we could play baseball.

That is really amazing the price difference back then compared to today!

Not exactly pre-war, but...

I got married in Venezuelan 18 years ago, and Mike Schmidt was always my favorite ballplayer. So this is a cool piece from my Phillies collection

These three make me quite happy......


Last card in my blue Chase run which completes this sub-set (started in 1981).

.





This Plank completes my SWEET CAPORAL Factory #30 set of 468 cards (after 10 years of collecting these "sweet" T206's).

.





Does a BB card get any more "psychedelic" looking than this 1949 LEAF card ?

I have a couple to share. The 1960 Topps Koufax was my first real vintage card buy when I around 8 or 9 back in the mid-80s. It was at a local flea market that had a card dealer. I'd buy boxes of 80s junk wax and one day picked up this baby.

The T206 Hannifan was not only my first T206, but it was my first prewar card and my first Jersey City card that started that collection. Back in the 80s when I picked up that Koufax, what I really wanted more than anything was tobacco cards. Specifically T206s. I knew about the Wagner and thought those cards were so awesome. But I thought they were so rare, where would a kid ever find them to purchase and they must have cost a ton. Of course, I was wrong, but never knew it at the time. I could've been collecting prewar as a kid, like I wanted to, and would have been able to pick up T206 HOFers for a few dollars. When I got older and found that out, I was so upset that I never knew it back them and I missed out on all those wonderful tobacco cards.
