May 2020 pickups - show em!

I don't see a pickups thread for May 2020, so I'll get the ball rolling.

1936 Detroit Times Sports Stamps Joe Louis. A hand cut issue. It's tough to locate in any condition.

Hello, I'm a Joe Louis card addict.

    He didn't know that in 89 though. You would think the guy they call Donnie Baseball would have been a shoe in.

    Watching him struggle with injuries in the second half of his career was almost as painful as watching the awful teams he played on in that era of Yankees baseball.

    I kicked off this month with a new early Yankees card addition. I like old cards of important Yankees and this guy was a team and franchise superstar. The Crow made his debut for the Yankees in 1932 and would be a Yankee mainstay for the next 40 years. With a playing career of 17 years as a slick fielding shortstop (who often pulled off the hidden ball trick on many the unsuspecting Major Leaguer) and then another two decades as a part of the coaching staff, you really couldn't face the Yankees and not bump into the light hitting 2 time all star. Here he is 91 years ago - before the Yankees - they when he was picking it for the Seals.

    Stephen, congratulations, incredible card and your Dad's day with Nelson is a great connection. I love your equating Nelson to Musial, from all I've read that is spot on.

    1936 Detroit Times Sports Stamps Joe Louis. A hand cut issue. It's tough to locate in any condition.

    The Detroit Times stamps were issued in either a side-by-side pairing; or, in one case, a full-page "sheet" of 16. The Joe Louis pairing was with Babe Ruth, making it a pretty special one to find with those two together.

    Yeah, I've seen that Babe Ruth before, thank goodness Joe was separated from Babe on mine, or else I never would have been able to afford it! ;)

    Gorgeous and Iconic card. He is also a lawyer, an author and a former member of Parliament here in The North. Hockey might have been simply a hobby for him.

    I decided to bite the bullet on this one early. Given the current climate of cards and the hype surrounding him, I just thought it wouldn’t pay to wait. This is my second card of The Martian. I may do one more.
