Default Howe McCormick backstamps - 50 I'll never see

Posted By: Frank Wakefield

Compose a letter to the eventual winner. Then rewrite it to really get it polished. A short letter. I would think you could contact the auction and they'd agree to forward your letter on to the eventual winner. I doubt that they'd give you the winner's name and address.

In the meantime, you might focus on saving funds to either outright buy any of the stamped cards the winner would sell, or funds for buying replacements for the eventual winner.


And I agree with Leon, some collectors still help fellow collectors. I mailed my "Howe McCormick" backstamped card to this guy....

Default Howe McCormick backstamps - 50 I'll never see

Posted By: T206Collector

A few weeks ago, I learned about some Mastro auctions from April 2001 that contained many signed deadball era cards that I had never known existed. By using Mastro's "back door," I was able to see many of them. Now, I hold little if any aspiration to ever find the owner of the signed T206 Lajoie I saw, but just the knowledge that it is out there has improved my collection -- it provides a road map, a legitimate wish list. I can sense you appreciate the same concept in your Howe pursuit.

I suspect the lot will be bought and then broken down. If the ultimate buyer learns that two people love Howe, it would make sense to sell them and upgrade. They may trickle down to ebay or even find you directly through Net54. Keep in mind that you have market forces on your side.

Good luck!

Send an email back to Steve Lucas @ Mastronet and give him your contact info, letting him know you won't be winning the 519 card lot but that you're interested in the McCormick cards. It may not amount to anything but than again, it may offer the opportunity to pick up a few of them from the lot winner. Good luck!

Ed - that SGC A Plank doesn't have a McCormick stamp, does it? Just kidding and good luck!

Hello there. New to this group. I recently purchased a grouping of 165 T206 commons. Upon showing them to a fellow collector, he mentioned that there is someone on this site who seeks out cards stamped with Howe McCormick on the back. I found three of them. Bowerman, Bransfield, and Lindaman in F-G condition. Do you have interest in these?

You’re looking for Ed McCollum. He’s called “StuckInOmaha” on Net54. Send him a personal message. Thank you for bringing your find to Net54 and welcome to the board!

Ed said that he'd be taking a break from purchasing these a few months ago, and I offered to buy some and hold them for Ed until he can continue the pursuit. I will contact you, NoTrim, and make an offer. Once Ed has the money, I will sell them to him *at cost* to help him get closer to his completion.

You da man, John. Thanks for doing what could be done by so many and done by so few. If you need help in your endeavors let me know (PM or whatever)....

True story and was on one of the prior threads if you want to verify. It's a good group of people here--welcome aboard--and it's awesome how everyone is helping put this collection back together.

NoTrim and I are going to make a trade to secure these three cards for Ed down the line. It will take a while since one of the cards I'm trading is at COMC and has to get shipped to me first.
