    Great stuff! I love OPC rough cut, that 1980 Ryan is a beauty.

    I remember how hot these were in 1998. Here we are 21 years later, and if I found one in nice enough condition, I'd drop the bucks for it too.

    Looks pretty good Jason.

    How much was the shop asking. I've always felt I was obligated to knock them down a bit since they seem to always think the card is worth more?

    Picked it up for $15 . It’s easily an 8

    Wow, GarveyFan those cards are insane. Hard to believe gems like those are still out there.
    The McGwire is a classic and still an icon.
    Cool idea on the Desert Shield HOF set.
    And lastly, I love UD hockey Young Guns. The checklist High Gloss is a smart move.

    Is it because ‘Danger’ is his middle name? 😂

    Added a new one to my Acuna RC collection. Still can’t believe I bought a snowflake variant.

    Very nice Acuna.

    Headed to Suntrust Park this month to see him play. He is the real deal.

    A guy on another message board posted for sale a group of 1974 team issued photos of the Patriots. Included in the lot was a team photo which included my man John Hannah, so I said I'd take them. A couple of PMs later, I had also bought a team issued photo of the 1973 squad, Hannah's rookie year. Here they are. Hannah is in the back left of each, number 73. The lot also included a 1974 (rookie) photo of Sam "Bam" Cunningham, also shown below.

    A few from a recent sub. Tons of others but I like Sp variations and I just think the Kershaw is a cool looking card.

    That is an amazing find! What a trophy! That was my favorite baseball team of my childhood. I love all things '89 Athletics. Hell, I'm just trying to find a nice '89 team autographed baseball let alone a World Series Trophy! Battle of the bay, the earthquake, the bash brothers, whats not to like. Simply stunning!

  • Kid4hof03Kid4hof03 Posts: 1,296 ✭✭✭✭

    Congratulations, Mike! That is truly amazing, a piece of history.

    Shaq.

    I collect hall of fame rookie cards, Candace Parker is my favorite player.

  • Another non-traditional pickup 😀 This book was published in 1949 and was sold by Marks & Spencer. It’s just under 100 pages. Plan is to digitize it so I can enjoy it when I’m away from home.

    If you are curious to see an example of how it will look digitized, you can check out another football album that received the same treatment at https://www.mybrokensite.com/ChixAlbum/

    Sorry this got longer than I expected....

    My first national was at Atlanta in 1992.

    There were well over 900 table numbers - the room was immense!

    I was immediately overwhelmed by the amount of incredible items to see.

    A guy with an entire table of nothing but WS press pins, someone with exclusively GU jerseys, another with just bats, balls and other signed items.

    I saw someone with a 1933 Goudey pack; another with an 8 pack 52T cello!

    There was a dealer actually dealing out stacks (bricks) of RC’s like they were playing cards. (eek)

    And then I saw what totally intimidated me. A world series trophy.

    I knew nothing about them other than what I saw on TV.

    But, I knew it would be a privilege to have one - but, at this point I’m only 2 active years in the hobby - so it was just a dream.

    Now, let’s fast forward to today…

    Balfour is one of the producers of WS trophies along with rings and press pins e.g.

    They make the Commissioner’s trophy at 24” which goes to the team and certain “prominent” individuals.

    Then a scaled down version at about 12” goes to players and staff members to include the front office.

    I’ve always wanted an example but player trophies go in the 5K and up range.

    I almost got a front office trophy from Jon Richmond/jonstats of eBay but got outbid - was close to 4K

    Then my chance came. Goldin Auctions had an 1989 World Series Trophy in fair condition - staff member version - Dave Kelley.

    I was simultaneously looking at a trophy to Don Baylor but it went for close to 5k.

    This trophy only had 2 bidders - I was the 2nd and winner!

    So, here it is.

    Yes, this is my “new” centerpiece - in fact, I’m thinking of building a house around this trophy! ()

    The trophy was a bit grungy - wonder if that ran some bidders off? I cleaned it quite a bit before taking the pic. LINK

    that is a very great trophy. does every player that wins a world series get a trophy plus a ring.
