Default April pick ups thread

Never started one of these!

This was actually a March pick up, but provides a couple good examples of why I love this site. Based on Ted's prior thread(s), I had learned that the rounded corner variants are indeed 1947 and Jackie's rookie card... and based on one of the 15% off coupon threads, I got a very nice discount. Long live N54!

I know it's not baseball, but the card doesn't really fit anywhere else on the board. I was finally able to pick up an Amelia Earhart Sky Birds card. The condition pretty much speaks for itself, but I grew tired of waiting for a decent one to show up on eBay. I figure I can always upgrade in the future.

The National Chicle Earhart card has proven to be surprisingly difficult to find a decent copy for a card that has over 100 graded examples.

I love history, and Earhart is one of my favorite people to read about. She only has five cards that were issued prior to her disappearance, and the National Chicle card is the only one that is even semi common None of the other options have even 10 graded copies on the PSA pop. chart.

Cool Collins, Leon. Below is another rare back (and rare front/back combo). Love me the rare HOF stuff. Now, I just need an HOF front 215-1 & -2 for a full HOF T206-front back run.

I literally was looking for some of her stuff the other day, and I had never searched for her cards, but was curious what was out there. I love history -- and have always sort of checked out astronaut stuff on the fringes, but have yet to buy anything there, either.

This Earhart is not particularly tough as far as I know.
