I am pretty sure that is Honus dressed and made up to be a very old peasant woman.

When someone finally offers you a dream card you've always wanted and you realize you don't want it anymore.

A sign you've been collecting a long time---

When you realize those cards you bought for a penny in 1948 need to be put up for auction because you have no one to leave them to!

The only concerns are that someone submits it for grading and then auctions it as a rare variation.

Default Gum

I still think about the smell of the gum. I wish there was a cologne of that smell. It's like women with baby smell. I love Topps gum smell.

Cheers,
Geno

Immediately after I sold my collection the 1 card I still needed for my type set came up for auction, a D355. Had it been a year earlier that card would have sold for 10k instead of 5k. Since I was selling my type collection I didn't want it anymore, after all of those years. (around 20 yrs)....

With a slight editing of the thread's title...A sign I've been collecting too long?

My 1973 cards are still way too 'new' to send in for grading...but they came out over a half a century ago.
