Which PSA N172 Delahanty would you rather own?

Post by jbonie on Sat Jun 18, 2011 11:31 pm

These two Delahanty's went for about the same hammer price.




For me, I'm going with John's! Easy call, right?

I've never seen another OJ Delahanty that I would rather own more than John's.

Can I just say that while I absolutely agree the image on the bat pose is tremendous, I do strongly prefer the praying hands pose - I find it captivating.

I like the bat pose. Very menacing. Like he is staring down the photographer giving him a look that says if I have to stand still much longer I am going to beat you with this bat. I imagine it's the same look pitchers got when he came to bat.

Gotta admit...I like the contrast of Johns much better...but I think I also prefer the praying hands pose...and I'm not a religous man either!Smile

The vote count is rather lopsided. So, rather than belabor the obvious--I agree with everyone else about the bat on shoulder--I'll just observe how intimidating that bat with the dark tip is. Was that typical for the era? I honestly don't know. It has a look about it that says, "The end of my bat is stained in blood. And it's yours. Good luck, dead man."

Harkens back to ole Ty Cobb: Something like a war, indeed.

I like both poses about the same, both are very cool for different reasons.

Agreed. It isn't the pose that differentiates it for me. It's the all-important contrast on the O.J.s that makes all the difference to me.

The one where he is bent over into a lump isn't my favorite. Otherwise, I like all the poses. The throwing pose is pretty cool, actually. But as Brian says, contrast is key.

http://www.robertedwardauctions.com/auction/2011/51.html

$8300 to 11k good deal.

For the record my card is also available hours after the public auction for a 30+% return on my investment. Just in case anyone who has 5 figures at any level to spend on a card of this profile wasn’t aware that major auction houses such as REA, SCP or Goodwin exist, and only use the BST of forums for huge purchases. Very Happy

Mention you saw the ad here and I will take 10% off the new 41k selling price. Wink

Cheers,

John

Okay whoever voted for the PSA 8 has got to come out of the closet. Was it you, Blair, resident card contrarian?

You're too generous with your offers, John! Wink

John,

Should I sell it for 30% less than what I paid for it? That would be bad business don't you think?

People try to buy low and sell high all the time, its what makes the world go round!

Buy low...sell high= sound business principle

Buy high...try to sell even higher right away=poor business principle.

just my 2 cents!

I guess everytime the T206 Wagner sold for a new high... thats bad business then? Someone bought it at a high and then sold it at an even higher price.
