Filling a Couple of PC Holes

With my fourth Ebay money purchase I decided to fill a couple more holes in my PC. 

While I had gotten a 1933 Goudey out of the way I found a couple of 1934 examples to add to my Braves and Tigers collections.

First we have card #59 of Boston Brave Joe Mowry.  The "Lou Gehrig says" on these cards is a major plus as I could never afford an actual Lou Gehrig card from this time period.


This is card #70 of Detroit Tiger Pete Fox.  Having a Brave and a Tiger from this set is very satisfying.

Another player that I could never afford from his playing days but is a need for any Tiger collection is Ty Cobb.  This same dealer had the 1960 and 1961 Fleer cards available so I took the plunge.  These cards are in fabulous condition.


1960 Fleer #42


1961 Fleer #14

Having these PC needs filled leaves a great taste in my mouth.  These cards come from 1,000,000 Baseball Cards in Manchester, Missouri and was my second purchase from them.  I will definitely look out for more cards from them in the future as the conditions for both purchases exceeded my expecations compared to some other Beckett Marketplace sellers I have ordered from.

This was going to be my last purchase with the "fun money" portion of my Ebay funds but I do have one more shipment on the way and will document that when it arrives.

Then I will have to figure out where to get more "fun money" because this is getting addictive!

  1. I'd love to eventually add some original Goudeys to my collection one day. Great looking cards.

  2. Maybe it's me and I've been influenced by all the stories I've read of him, but there is something unnatural about Ty Cobb smiling...

1976 Topps Mail Day

Made another trade happen from Twitter and got 3 1976 Topps I need in exchange for a 1973 Steve Carlton.  That Carlton card documents one of the greatest pitching seasons ever.  The Phillies were 59-97 that year but Carlton was 27-10 and led the league in strikeouts. Wow! Here are the 3 lovely cards I got back in trade: That is Reds backup catcher Bill Plummer, Cardinals SS/2B Mike Tyson, and the team card from the Oakland A's.  This was the last great Oakland team from their dynasty.  They were the 3-time defending World Champions but lost to the Red Sox in the AL Championship Series. Thank you to the Baseball Card Kid for the nice trade. Please see my 1976 Topps want list for what else I need.

RIP Knucksie

  As a child growing up in the late 1970's in Georgia I watched the Braves a lot. My first baseball hero was Phil Niekro. Phil Niekro died last night after battling cancer. 2020 needs to end.

Tax Refund Treasures

  I filed early and got a decent tax refund so I decided to buy a couple of more vintage cards for my PC. First up is this lovely 1957 Topps Al Kaline that fits nicely into my vintage Kaline collection.  It is now my oldest card of him.  Since I'm not a fan of the oversize Topps cards from before 1957 it is likely to stay my oldest Kaline. My collection was missing a Goudey card so I picked up this card that checks that off the list and is an addition to my vintage Tigers collection.  It is now my second oldest baseball card. A big thank you to Medina Sport Cards in Medina, Ohio for having these two great cards at good prices.
