Default Once, Twice, Three Times an Ugly

Most of you guys have seen my T206 Rube Portrait. Thanks to a generous board member (Hi Sean!), I now have Rube Squared. Filling out the trio is a Mr. Jennings E-90-1.

To paraphrase Monty Python....

BRING OUT YOUR UGLIES!

Default The Mutants are Gem Mint on this Thread

The set is still intact. The price just went up for they really feel out of place on this thread.

Aaron.jpg

Hank is almost in two pieces.

Berra.jpg

Yogi cannot challenge Waddell

Clemente.jpg

Roberto may be trimmed, but remains centered.

Koufax.jpg

Sandy emulating Titus with the 'stache

Mays.jpg

Someone wanted Willie out of New York, but let him keep the cap.

Williams.jpg

Restoration is the key for the uglies. Ted's trim was carefully restored with a "Preston Ward" boarder.

Interested parties should simply refer to "The Mutants" in their inquiries.

I sincerely apologize for polluting this thread with gem mint uglies.

Default Well-loved , much-handled , poorly-stored....



..to the set-completionist crowd , any port in a storm is anthem -- if anyone out there is willing to help me out with an upgrade proposal of any of these , well that would be a noble thing to do seein' as how we're so close to Christmas and all...
