You need to check the box to include sold items in the search. Here is a direct link, I hope:

+1. For all the non experts out here, we are curious.

And congrats... but I'm not sure for what.

The tin top is worth the price of admission even without the Shappe!

Nice Dan.

"Blind Squirrel," my ass! A better description for Mr. Mckee is "The Old Fox" (a/k/a Clark Griffith)!

Hey Dan, good to see you active again on Net54. Hope all is going well for you.

Congrats...that was quite the lot. The T206 Shappe and the Red Border Colgan's card. But there is another card I have not seen before, the W572 card with the Nielson's back. I have a vague memory that maybe there are cards out there with counterfeit stamped backs (real card, fake stamp).

No matter what, congrats, congrats + potentially congrats!
