Legendary Leanings

Post by ullmandds on Thu May 24, 2012 1:31 pm

So does anyone have their eye on anything in the LEgendary auction? In true..."follow the leader" fashion...a 2nd year ruth card is attracting very strong bidding...

http://www.legendaryauctions.com/LotDetail.aspx?lotid=129003&searchby=0&searchvalue=None&page=0&sortby=0&displayby=2&lotsperpage=100&category=1&seo=1917-E135-Collins-McCarthy-%23147-Babe-Ruth---PSA-VG-EX%2b-4.5

currently hovering around 37K...an incredible price for a non rookie ruth in my opinion.

I'm eyeing the e94 wagner I've been trying to add to my set...but I'm frugal...and am practically at my max...so we'll see.

The Collins McCarthy shows Ruth in a Boston uniform. Anything that does that is going to command some big coin. That said, I was surprised how quickly it shot up.

That E270 Colgans Red Border Cobb is pretty cool. Only the 2nd time I've ever seen that card available.

The E135 Ruth card is very attractive and much more difficult to find than the m101 rookies. It should fetch a pretty penny. Still, I cannot stomach the descriptions these clowns use. Did they hire Stephen A. Smith to write this tripe? Put down the thesaurus and say what needs to be said in 7 words, not 27. "The item's cartophilic credentials are immediately apparent through census report statistics, and they're reinforced by informed discussions of industry lore". Really? Talk about someone in love with the sound of his own voice (figuratively). Give it a rest already--tell us about any flaws, cite a pop report figure or two if need be, and get on with it.

This concludes my morning rant.

I think the Boston caption is more critical than Ruth in a red sox uni...as many early 20's issues depict him in the same exact pose...but with ny yankees caption.

I agree that the descriptions in many of these houses is downright insulting...not just legendary...it's most of them!!!!

That red border cobb IS very cool...I love the contrast of the dark background. But...it's really not a card...it's like a disc...or something!!!!!!

Goodwin is going to be out soon... he has already changed the front page of his website. I'll be seeing what's there first before placing any bids.

Two items peek my interest... uncut strips (the w573 two strips of ten look awfully nice and the nine complete sets of uncut 1920's-40's strips also is intriguing though not completely sports related).

Gotta agree with the disdain for diatribes associated with auction descriptions. English Lit majors must REALLY be looking for work. I like what jbonie posted about the elimination of auction catalogs. Perhaps in the same vein they should limit the characters in descriptions. Of course, then they would read like text messages, or hieroglyphics.

I'm guessing goodwin will be filled with Lee's semi rare back t206's he no longer wants...and other T206's!Smile


I stand corrected...it appears the next goodwin auction will be a "premium" auction...so the July one will be the next T206 auction.

I love Stephen A. Smith. He has developed a bit of a routine but he is one of the most intelligent sports journalists. I think it would be hilarious if he started writing auction descriptions.

"Supreme historical artifact" is pushing it pretty hard for the E135 Ruth. Yet if the card sold at Goodwin, the description would be five times as long. Brevity may be the soul of wit, but verbosity is the pulse of card sales.

If I had fifty thousand bucks to spend, I might like a long description justifying my purchase as well.

My boring ole tastes run right to that set of 24 graded T206's. Nice bunch of SL's and HOF's thrown in. At the moment it's sitting cheap, and it might fly under the radar of so much high-profile Ruth stuff. (A "Babe Ruth Cast Iron Door Stop." Was there no end to what the man would shill? But hey, more power to him. If someone wants to pay me to put my name on door stops, stop all the doors you want!) laughing

I'm not a Cobb fan but if I had the coin, this is the Cobb I would be chasing. This is easily the best picture of Cobb that says everything about what type of player he was. That "Don't mess with me" look epitomizes what I think of Cobb as a player.

Lots of great Cobb postcards out there.

Here's my copy of his M101-3. The safety pin holding his collar cracks me up.
