Unpopular opinion, but Jeffries resume is far superior to Johnson’s.

Johnson beat Jeanette, Langford (who wasn’t really a heavyweight even then), a washed up Fitzsimmons in 1907, Burns, and he defended his title against only middling competition and champions at lower weight classes (O’Brien, Ketchell), and a washed up retired Jeffries after he quit and become a 300 pound fatso. His actual record is not very strong. Compare it to Jeffries resume. He lost to Jeanette (who he beat far more often), Choynski and Hart before he was washed up.

Johnson has the socially popular narrative and biography suited to its audience today. Jeffries has the ring record.

Not sure if this counts, but I recently picked up this partial set from Japan. I've always liked Rikidozan so thought it would be fun to hunt down the missing cards. Wish me luck. :P

I believe the cards were released as a box set, as a child's game, I think.

Singles for sale may be a very rare occurrence due to the nature of the set.

I was the second highest bidder of the auction. I would have bidded more if the Thesz cards were complete.

Yes, I think you're right. The (partial) set looks pretty nice person.

Not exactly a "pickup", more of a "found tucked away", lol.
Has weird defect on it, looked like a calcium deposit that might brush off. But under magnification it looks like paper is bubbled? As you can see it goes through to both sides. Never saw anything like it before.

Looks like some kind of chemical deposit. That signature looks good enough to make it worthwhile to have a conservator look at it and see what can be done.

Meanwhile my big get for the...year:



Overpaid for it but when you see the right card for your collection, sometimes you have to say WTF, make your move. After all, I am Exhibitman...

1959 Stella:




These two HOFers are the only ones I've seen in the set and fought a trio of classic 140# title fights, which is probably why Ortiz is in the set (the other fighters I've seen are all Italian).

Been awhile since I posted a pickup. Was happy to get this Nelson, I have no expectation of completing an 80 card master, but hoping to build 'as many as I can reasonably get'. The images in T224/T229 are fantastic quality for their small size. This one cost a bit more than I would want it too because it's 4 VG/EX range, but it's hard to being picky on condition with the tougher sets. 3 down, 77 to go.

That Ogdens Jackson is fantastic. I was happy to get one with a small chunk out of the side.

I haven't seen one of those Siki cards offered for sale for years. Really nice. Mine has a different back:



I guess they were trade cards that could be imprinted by advertisers.

Thanks Adam, I remember you sharing the image of yours with me a few years ago. It's better than I expected, light chipping but no creases.

Interesting that the Siki has different backs. I think I've seen that card before cruising overseas Ebay sites, but never made note of the back.

Agree the Ogden's Jackson is unbelievable!

The Siki sat in my cart for a few months(I think listed obscurely) while I attempted to research it and never found anything. It was the purple that sealed the deal for me.

Lastly - Adam, you're about to hit 10,000 posts!!!!

You're lucky I didn't spot it or I'd probably have snagged it just for the back variation.
