PSA 9


This card caught my attention. What is the story behind this one?

From the BIBLE: "The 72 card set was a test issue and received rather limited distribution around Massachusetts. The cards were sold three per pack for five cents with a piece of gum, or in two-card packs with no gum."

Looks like the Ryan card is by far the most expensive in the set.

It was tough having to sell almost my entire collection of ~1,700 PSA graded cards from the 1910s - 1970's and my ~250 - 300 Graded Packs from the 50s, 60s and 70s. But when your daughter AND your wife are diagnosed with Cancer, sometimes you don't have a choice. One day I'll get some of them back!

Thanks for the explanation.

I just checked the pop report and there are some different variations.

This card is a Pop 16 with none higher.

If the Ryan card is by far the most expensive this must be a player registry fueled card.

Wow, I wonder what a White Back would go for?

it is by far the Big Kahuna of the set--

I have been trying to complete this set 3 ways, gray backs, white backs and Undeckled proofs. But still 3 white backs short. Fortunately the Ryan is done
