Default April Pick Ups

Although these are not baseball cards, these are now some of my most cherished cards I own thanks to a fellow N54'er.

Have been wanting to obtain a "Chariots of Fire" playing day card from the main characters from the movie- Harold Abrahams, Eric Liddell, Lord Burghley (Lord Lindsay in the movie), and E.A. Montague (Known as Aubrey in movie)

1) Picked up a nice graded Burghley for my birthday. Easy enough

2) Picked up an Abrahams 1929 Godfrey Philips raw along with a Charley Paddock from a fellow board member last year. Sent off to SGC. Awesome.

3) I thought my search for Montague was impossible, so I picked up a replicated postcard of him Steeplechasing in the background in the 1924 Olympics. But lo and behold, I then discovered he had a card in the 1922 Bunsen Confectionery set.

I found a dealer in England who was willing to part with one. Boom! I thought my quest was nearly complete...

4) The Liddell was another quest I thought to be impossible, as TCDB showing nothing but post playing day cards for Liddell. Makes sense since Liddell had a short career running and focused on his ministry work in China after.

But then thanks to some late night digging on Anson's PreWar card's site... I found the 1924 Gallaher set that included an Abrahams, Liddell, and Henry Stallard (another obscure sidequest I have yet to embark on).

As luck would have it, Liddell was actually mispelled as "Liddle", which is why I never found it on TCDB. Lets go!!!

The hard part now was actually finding a copy. Liddle was not seen on any website, outside an overpriced graded copy of the Abrahams.

Just for fun I threw a shot out in the dark on net54... As luck would have it, a fellow n54 member had several Gallaher cards including the Liddle and Abrahams. So naturally I got both.

So there you have it, the "Chariots of Fire" playing days card for each member complete. Here are pictures of the last 3 difficult cards I had to track down. They will head to SGC sometime early next year.

Over the moon about these!

Never thought I'd be able to add a Broad Leaf to my Providence set, but was very glad to be able to add this one.

I don't know if it was the artwork or what, but nobody wanted them almost regardless of the price. I finally blew out several sets after trying to get what I thought they should be worth. I suspect I'd get my prices now!

That is so awesome!!! I'm a huge fan of Eric Liddell and I'd been wanting a card of him for a long time, but like you I thought he didn't have any cards. Now I need to see if I can get a Gallaher of him.

Lovely cards - and congrats on finishing your Chariots of Fire set!

I also just linked the 1924 Gallaher to Liddell's ID on TCDB so people can actually know he has a playing-era card.

Just stumbled on this one from eBay. Fragile condition but not often does a program from April 17th, 1947 come up for sale. Jackie Robinson’s first MLB hit (a bunt single to third) and Duke Snider’s MLB debut. Jackie’s debut on Opening Day drew about 26k, but the follow-up only had about 10k in attendance. Today is the 77th anniversary!

Talk about recent floods on eBay, anyone saw the group of William Patersons this past week? More than a dozen HOF’ers and a good group of stars and commons as well by Greg Morris. There was a Hornsby and I think a Cobb as well. You rarely ever see even one of those. Only one I ever owned was the Travis Jackson rookie when I was doing the HOF RC collection back in the early 2010’s.

Wow, sweet card, Paul, and great turnaround by Mile High.

Great pickup! Cobb rookie postcards have seemed to come back down a bit, may need to pick up a Cobb Fielding soon.

Great piece and pickup, Greg. Cobb looks ready for battle and tool of destruction in hand. A remarkable image.

Here is a 1933 Wheaties Minneapolis Millers card of Spencer Harris. Larger than what I normally like to collect, but he happens to be the all-time hit leader for the minors leagues, racking up 3617 hits over 26 years in the minors, and according to his SABR biography, "Harris holds the minor-league mark with 2,287 runs scored. Harris is also the minor-league career leader in doubles (743) and total bases (5,434) and may also be the leader in walks." All while hitting .318 for his minor league career. He also played parts of four seasons in the majors.

So I couldn't resist adding a little Spencer into my card diet.

Nice Cobb. I have always felt that card is one of the best looking ones of him (of course I have 2, so I am feathering my own nest...).

Maybe he will catch up, in value, to some less than great looking cards of his....

Front and back of a 1930s French magazine page that includes Ruth in its baseball article. Appears to be translation of a conversational piece on presenting baseball to overseas audiences. Edges looked trimmed because it's juuuuuuust a bit bigger than my scanner. :-)

I thought you might like this one, Leon.

Great pick up Gary (glad it went to a good home). Yes, certainly 1860s not 1875. I have 3 gem types all single portraits and I have never seen one with more than 1 player let alone an entire team.

Default E91-a Johnny Kling American Caramel

Thrilled to have grabbed this E91-a Johnny Kling American Caramel off of eBay with a BIN!

Centering, registration, and corners are outstanding!

Will make a nice companion piece to go along with my Bresnahan E91-a. Both cards actually resemble the players!

Default T206 Peaches Graham

Picked up another Peaches Graham T206 that has all the red markings on the uniform to go with my other Graham T206 which only has the red marking on the right wrist but is missing the red on his hat, collar, and at the elbows of the uniform.

Patrick, nice Kling, and you are correct that they both resemble the faces of the players!

Some raw Kentucky boys from a board member!
Very excited about these as I spent half my life in KY and know all the Bluegrass League towns very well and have family in a couple of them. My OCD has always kept me away from the T210’s, but what the hell, a few won’t hurt!
Thanks,
Bob

REA could have saved me a lot of trouble if they had just put these in the same auction!
