Default Flea Market Finds

I went to a flea market this past weekend and picked up some post-WWII vintage baseball cards including a '57T Robin Roberts, '61T Richie Ashburn, a '67T Joe Morgan, some 70s cards of Rollie Fingers, Reggie Jackson, Willie Stargell, and Brooks Robinson... and a 1947-66 Exhibits Larry Doby.

The find of the day was the 1973 Mike Schmidt shown here. My question to the experts is if it's real or a counterfeit/reprint. The printing looks better on the actual card than it does in my 300 dpi scan. It looks good to me, but since this is the first '73 Schmidt RC I've owned, I'd like others' opinions.


Thanks!

Nothing jumping out and screaming "fake" to me. How does the card feel, compared to the other '70s cards you have? How's the gloss/reflectivity, compared to the others?

To paraphrase 'Seinfeld,' "It's real and it's fantastic."

It undoubtedly appears to be real, and it also has the typical centering involved with that card. A fine grab, indeed!!

It's one of the finer John Hilton rookie cards I've seen.

Default Prices

I wanted to get people's opinions before I posted what I paid, but always intended to share that info. So here goes...

The '57T Robert's was $25, the '61T Ashburn was $4 (from a 70% off box), the '64T AL Wins leaders card was $2 (also from the 70% off box), the '67T Morgan was $7.50 (from a 50% off box), the '72T Fingers was $5, the '77T Robinson was $5 , the '76T Stargell was $3, the '79T Jackson was $5, the Exhibits Larry Doby (not shown) was $8, and the Schmidt rookie came out of the same 50% off box where I got the Joe Morgan... it was marked $5 so I paid $2.50 for it!!!

Great finds. I went to a flea market this weekend too. Had a guy with some cards. Wanted $25 for a 1988 Topps Greg Maddux. Nothing outside of 1987-1992. Overpriced junk wax era is about par for my era I guess.

$2.50 for a Schmidt rookie, wow! I never get lucky with baseball at flea markets, antique stores, etc. Mostly overpriced 70's and then junk wax I sometimes buy for a fun rip. Have found some non-sport and boxing T card steals a couple times. Probably not the worth amount of times I've tried

The Schmidt would be nice except for the word "reprint" on the back.








Just kidding. Made you look though.

Very very nice find. Two summers ago, I had a few really nice finds at a local flea market which included some early 1960's with Berra, Yaz, Mantle AS, and some 1963 Fleer. I was really really lucky.

Congrats on this find and I hope you find some more good stuff at the flea markets!

Sorry to be picking nits, but actually, the quote was uttered by Terry Hatcher in a Seinfeld episode, "They're real and they're spectacular." Too bad we didn't get to judge for ourselves, eh?

I was obviously using 'Seinfeld' to denote the show, not Jerry himself. (Now added single quotes to my post.)
