    Beautiful Yogi, MLB! Just curious: I notice your recent Yogi, Reggie and Torre pickups were all reholdered. Was that factor at all important to you in buying them, or would you have been just as happy with them in their original pre-hologram holders? Or did you have them reholdered yourself?

  • brad31brad31 Posts: 793 ✭✭✭✭

    Nice Berra. Your cards have been amazing the last couple of months MLBdays. Thanks for sharing.

  • MLBdaysMLBdays Posts: 803 ✭✭✭✭✭

    @PaulMaul ... that wasn't a factor at all...just the merits of the card are evaluated. I only re-holder if the holder is in bad shape which is fairly rare. Thank you for the feedback!

    Well I must say they look even better with the lighthouse holders! Congrats!

    A few more Roy's to add in. These "St. Patrick" cards have me captivated right now:



    Main collecting focus is Patrick Roy inserts/game-used/autograph cards.
    Also collecting Cal Ripken Jr., Ken Griffey Jr. and Frank Thomas; Donovan McNabb rookie cards.

    And a McNabb rookie jersey that doesn't pop up often:

    Thanks to some eBay bucks action, I just scooped the Scooter! Pretty nice example of the card and I will get it done soon enough; crossed to a PSA slab, that is. This time, though, I grabbed his actual rookie card. I’m working on a self created set of representative rookie cards for the Yankees who have had their number retired. While PSA has their own similar set (I’m working on that, too), I prefer a few of the ‘first card rookies’ to some of the more arbitrary ones. For example, 1933 Goudey was closer to Ruth’s 20th season, 1939 Playball was Joe DiMaggio’s 3rd season and 1948 Bowman was Phil Rizzuto’s 7th. So, without further ado, here he is and HOLY COW does he look young... :smiley:

    I don't know about you all but I am horrendous at hanging on to my eBay bucks for longer than 24 hours :p

    Been steadily picking up as much of this guy as I can when the price is right.....

    And a couple of raw cards that will be headed to PSA very soon.....

    This 2007 Ultra card is nice.. In fact so nice that they used the same picture (ok maybe a split second between the two) on the front for 2 consecutive years!

    I do like the complete stat line on the back of the 2007!

  • MLBdaysMLBdays Posts: 803 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Here is a 2018 Topps Heritage Dual Real One Auto SSP /25 of "Fast" Freddy Freeman and Ronald "The Big Tuna" Acuna ... One of the fun aspects to collecting RC's in the Heritage hemisphere these days is the number of different Rookie Cards a collector has at his options.... I had to jump into my very first purchase of a Dual Auto ever with this Acuna RC option.....had Heritage offered an Aaron Judge RC via the Real One Dual Auto issue in 2017 I would have bought my first example last year and not just this year with Acuna....enjoy!!

  • Dated April 19 1938. With some research I found out Ruth was at the polo grounds that day doing some work for the Worlds Fair

  • Added these to the Trout collection

    So I purchased this rare 1/1 Rookie Mookie last year during the MLB season. I decided to get it reholdered and it recently came back. Went on the PSA Website and it looks like they got a nice scan of it while it was there.

    So much fire. I'm legit jealous of this. Congratulations!

    Love that you try to stay consistent and get things in the new flips, I'm the same way.

    Top 3 HR hitters In the 1970's ~Willie Stargell hit 296 Home Runs, Reggie hit 292 and Johnny Bench hit 290 ~...... If you had to put a face on the 1970's it'd be Mr. October....Reggie was the 70's in MLB..this is the latest to the Reggie career set.... enjoy! T ~

    Wow! Great card from an underappreciated set. Stunning.

    Interesting fact: It’s actually different people but when you sat in those seats during the Griffey years you had to put those clothes on during every at bat.

    They were in little bags under the seats. Nobody seemed to mind.

    These explanations sound totally rational to me. Griffey was amazing.

    Little known fact, the Seattle fans would not do this for him. Once he moved to Cincinnati the fans loved doing this. I am glad Ultra caught the moments.

    Sweet relic of a fading Ultra brand who apparently fired their photographer and creative designers.

    Nice pic anyway.

    Like the Keller cards, Ive been secretly stashing Kingham cards.

    pulled a 2017 bowman platinum keller auto last year and never heard of him. found out recently he's picking up steam so I picked up a few more for the hell of it. even though his 1st Bowmans were 2014 I think, it wasn't until 2017 that he started signing cards.

    It's like signing the card is a jinx.

    Borrowing from an SNL News joke about the death of the "world's oldest living person" where they mention the relatively short reign of the two previous titleholders.

    Cool item, btw.
