i agree...too bad oversized cards are a no-go for many collectors!

With the surge of the Gehrig Exhibit and the rare postcards, I think that's changing. Cobb PCs are certainly booming (so much for impartiality). So I think it should follow that the Ruth's, though not nearly as rare as the more valuable Cobbs, should get the attention they deserve.

I think that '15 Cracker Jack Hof'ers are due to close the price gap with the '14's in 2018. For sure, there are the '15 factory sets which skew population reports plus scads of nrmt cards that have emerged over the years. Add in the fact they are arguably the most beautiful cards ever produced, people want them in the best condition possible and to hell with the history. And I think the '15 CJ's of Matty and Hal Chase are just plain gorgeous.

You may be right! Early Ruth exhibits could be had for less than 1K for most in nice shape maybe 2 years ago...now they'3-4 times more...these definitely have room to run. And I totally agree they are much rarer and imo desirable as compared to goudeys...most other ruth cards are to me!

And most cobb pc's are technically rookies so that kinda helps the valuations as compared to ruth. has an m101-3 appreciated much lately?

There's only one rookie Cobb...w601 PC IMO. Maybe the hobby will wake up to this card?

My guess would be something rare Ruth...Fredrick Foto, 1921 E121 variations, Boston Store, Collins McCarthy...his rare early postcards. M101 should continue to be hot. Ruth Red Sox related type 1 photos as well. Anything early Ruth with a pop less than 25.

I also see rare Jackie Robinson and high grade Robinson rookie stuff as a sure thing.

Well, I guess that wasn't just one card now was it...��

Just saw it. It's a shame I didn't pick one up when I first started looking. Great looking card for the grade.

The post-war card looks like the Tom Brady RC: Link

This. Ridiculous prices. I don’t think I have ever seen a card rise in value this fast.
