Well, a couple months ago I tried it again and a board member reached out and said he had one that he would let go. Then I took a break from cards for a while (I didn't plan on it, just got really busy at work and sometimes just take a break for no real reason) and completely forgot that he and I had started talking about the Abstein. Then, when I came back to my cards and Net54, I remembered we had a conversation going and I reached back out to him letting him know I was still interested. He was kind enough to continue with our deal even though I basically ghosted him in the middle of it. And I am now the proud new owner of this baby! This was definitely the longest time a deal has taken me to seal (all my fault of course) but I want to shout out a huge Thank You to gentleman who put up with me and sold this to me. You're awesome man!

This completes my Colgan's Jersey City team set as well.



.
Congratulations on closing it out Andy, awesome accomplishment.

Non-sports, but these just arrived back from PSA and I'm very pleased with the grades. PSA has graded only 39 cards from the set, and both of these are technically PSA total pop 1's as they're the only blue-back versions graded. Of the 39 cards from this set graded, there's only one 7...no others higher than my six, and only one other six out there.

I think this came from Val on an eBay auction. For about half the price of an edible Goose, which happen to fit perfectly in my giant smoker!

These Kashin HOFers, like Goose here, are really growing me! They display great! Iíll probably add a handful of these guys since they are really cool dollar for dollar compared to more mainstream stuff right now.

Enjoy,
Bob

This is my first time posting to a pick up thread! Only my second pre-war card: an M101-2 Sporting News Supplement Grover Cleveland Alexander. It has a few creases and four pin holes, but the image is wonderful and striking in person.

Yes, Bob, this card card of the "Goose" did come from me. And, thanks for the very nice eBay feedback. I look forward to seeing your additional Kashin acquisitions.

Thanks so much Phil! I was very excited to finish the Colgan's with this last one. Here are the cards I know of that I still need for the Jersey City team collection.

1889 N173 Old Judge Cabinets
Joe Gerhardt

1889 N172 Old Judge (these are all 1889 team change variations)
Joe Gerhardt, Bill Holbert, Tom O'Rourke

1909 D380-1 Clement Bros
Butler (wearing Jersey City uniform in image)

1912 E254 Red Borders
Hanford, Waller

1912-13 T215 Pirate Back
Billy Purtell

1913 E270 Tin Tops
Hanford (May not exist), Kelly, , Knight, Manser, Purtell, Viebahn

1915 T214 Victory Cigarettes
Wiltse

So you can see why I consider this Colgan's to be the last attainable card that I needed.

Here is John Titus, sans his expensive T206 mustache. An added bonus to this T205 card is that the Hassan 30 back was previously unverified for Titus. If indeed it has not been verified before, well, here it is.

Picked up my first Diamond Stars card. It’s got a little scuff of some kind but otherwise in nice shape.

Nice card...looks like a partially erased number. One of the fun aspects of Diamond Stars cards are the backgrounds. This one of Bonura has the cool theme of picking out some lumber.

I resized the front to enhance its awesomeness, and then couldn't resist going nutty with resizing, creating a staircase of Bonuras.

Just got this guy in the mail! Pretty cool shelf sitter! Also the first Exhibit Iíve ever owned. Nice a crisp for a 1 price, as it has some glue on the back. Being glued up sure keeps those corners sharp.

Enjoy the weekend,
Bob

Before diving into such a project, I would assume a staircase of Bonuras is probably not up to code.

I looked at it again under magnification. It definitely looks like some kind of print anomaly and not an erasure. The surface is as smooth as the rest of the card.

From the scan it looks like a partially erased '50', but judging in hand of course is far superior.

Hereís a better pic. Itís some kind of printing scuff or weirdness, although it feels smooth.

Thanks to a fellow board member (who has the coolest T206 collection around) for making this real tough Cicotte available. A special one to add to the collection and back run.

Oh, so you're going for the master set then. Some of the color combos are pretty tough for specific players. Best of luck man. Enjoy the quest.

I have always wanted one of these Novelty Cutlery PCís. I had been trying to land a couple of the HOFers that came up this year, with no luck. I just stuck to it of this Chase, as I absolutely love the shot! I love the borders on these particular post cards, so cool!

Itís time to build a shelf for a couple of these bigger holders!

Enjoy the day,
Bob

Also from REA, really excited to add Jim Thorpe to the wall of fame! You canít beat getting a bunch of prewar HOFers on one card! Matty and Thorpe on one card, with Merkle tossed in, sign me up!

Connie Mack and the gang on the other.

Enjoy the weekend,
Bob
