The Huggins is a Pop Report of 6 between SGC/PSA.

The Phillippi from what I can find is a Pop1 w/ SGC. I'm not exactly sure how rare this one is, but it's one of my favorite cards in my collection.

Wonderful cards being shown in this topic. Love it!

Bill

also this...not sure exactly how rare it is (anybody?), only that the hand-cut version is supposedly rarer than the 'standard' version.

Definitely this one for me in terms of rarity. 1 of 2 across both SGC and PSA. The very hard to find W516-2-3 set (I saw someone post a Ruth earlier).

For those that care - the differences between the W516 variations are subtle but noticeable. The W516-2-3 version is the normal font and non-mirrored image.

If you've never learned the differences, Old Cardboard sums it up perfectly:

Here's the Al Simmons from the same strip issue:

These 3 blank-back Senators' cards appear to be from the same strip card issue as Adam's cards.

Most of the cards from this series are in the single digits of known copies. This one carries the star power, although I believe the Robinson (which I also own -with many thanks to Brian VH) is the only known.

1869 Redstockings Photo Disc (with closeups of front and back). Probably was a pin, but I really can't see evidence of that on the back. It's clearly a manufactured item, but have never heard of another surfacing.

Here is a hobby unicorn: an R340 Sport Kings premium of Dempsey, Baer and Carnera using an image from the MGM film The Prizefighter and the Lady. There are two known SK premiums, this one and a Weissmuller. The alleged Ruth that was sold some years ago is a proof, not the as-issued card.

Brian,
I may be able to joust ya;
on the, "least desirable"; lol.

'Wickey' McAvoy, an 18 yr-old catcher from Rochester, NY; after his team had a series with the Baltimores; is signed by Connie Mack's A's, as a back-up catcher. Subsequently is sent to Baltimore for seasoning. While there, McAvoy catches a young pitcher named Ruth; undoubtedly is reporting analysis of this young pitcher back to Philly. When Mack begins negotiations with Dunn of Baltimore, Mr. Mack feels $10K is a bit steep for his liking; prolly thinking negotiations will follow. The rest is history as Boston came a calling. My guess is that after the passing of Powers and ATC pulling his card from the 350 run; someone from the A's office acquired this card from the printer (nameplate removed, no shadow); inserted it into the ol' typewriter
(anyone remember those? lol) and gave Wickey his own 'card'; this was a big deal to some back then, having your own baseball card. I am still digging on this backstory but wanted to share what I have.

Default 1964 Topps All-Star Rookie Banquet Card

Since a few collectors have previously posted Post-War items, I thought I'd post this fairly rare, desirable card of Pete Rose. But, Pete is not the reason for it being in my humble collection. I enjoy collecting unique '50s and '60s White Sox memorabilia; and this bad boy includes 3 Chisox Topps Rookie All-Star Team selections.

Post them up, Brian. Here is one I have only seen one of. And it could go in my thread about owning the same card twice too. I think I overpay every time I get one back because there is a tiny bit of sentimnetality in my bidding.

Default 1907 Cubbies and more Cubbies

What great cards in this thread. Thanks to all of those sharing.
Picked this up a few days ago. Canceled on back to 1907.
I don't remember seeing one like it (there must be others) . Not in hand but shipped... Love the cubs....

That Oms is one of the coolest cards I've ever seen. Haunting in a way.

Question though, what are those several cards you posted last? Not familiar with the set, and assume they are all blank backed.

I LOVE that, '07 Cubbies, Leon!
Thank you for sharing. So cool, have never seen it.

Default A few rare cabinets and a few color freaks

Guessing my rarest cards would be either my T4 Obak Cabinets or my Old Mill Cabinet.

The John Tiedeman T4 Obak Cabinet was trimmed to the oval, whereas the Claude Berry T4 Obak Cabinet is complete. The Joseph Laughlin H801-7 Old Mill Cabinet is one of my favorite items.

I also have some "color freaks" which would qualify as rare. They include a Otto Miller B18, a E92 Harry Bemis, and a E102 Red Kleinow.

Okay. Since I've seen both postcards and post-war cards posted, I'll add a few.

I have no illusions of waking up with anything comparable to most of what I've seen...especially Mr. Kenny Cole - I'm just sharing what I still have:

BABE RUTH Single-Signed 4x5 Photo.jpg

1961 Topps #344- SANDY KOUFAX SGC-96 Mint - Lionel Carter Collection.jpg1968 Topps 45- Tom seaver SGC-4 Gary-Carter-Collection 91.26.jpg


FYI- I had earlier posted my hand-cut '41 Play Ball- Hubbell and asked if anyone knew how rare it is. I'd still be interested in any details.

Scott,

Amazing cards, cabs , postcards on this thread! Don't want to slight anyone by naming favorites so great collections gents.

This thread is right up my alley as tough to find cards have always been a focus of my collection. Just my personal choice but I would rather own a card that not too many others have rather than a card that can be easily found. Probably have enough to bore you guys with for a couple of hours

All M101-6 Mendelsohns are relatively scarce but these 3 are never seen.
Two of them are obvious team changes.

Sam Crawford is a 1/1 for now . Probably there is another one out there

Grover Alexander is usually seen with the Cubs.
This is both a team and photo change as his first year with Chicago was 1918
