that Titte card always kind of freaked me out. Looks like a giant (no pun intended) head on a tiny body.

I agree, Jay. That's quite the melon he's got there.

Yeah, the angle at which they shot the photo is unfortunate. But at least he's not bleeding from the head like in that famous Berman photo (which I think was taken that same year).

Some recent HOF's:

August Pick-Ups _5722August Pick-Ups _5723August Pick-Ups 07270710August Pick-Ups _57_312August Pick-Ups _57_214

Plus a recent acquisition with the new SGC slab:

August Pick-Ups _5724

Am I the only one who doesn't really dig SGC's new look? I liked their old slab. I didn't see any need to change it. But oh well...

I don't like it all. Seems kind of amateurish and home made. I'm a lot of it has to do with marketing. Change the slab and the collectors that are OC will want to have the same type of slab on all their cards, so it will generate some re-grade fees for them.

Thanks, Z. My collection started with the '53 Topps Paige (it was raw, but I've since upgraded to a PSA5, pic below), so he'll always own a soft spot in my collecting heart. This gives me two of the three cards he was issued in national sets during his playing career (so far as I know). The one I don't have is his short-printed card in the 48/49 Leaf set. That one I just can't afford, unless an acceptable low-grader comes along. I hope it does, but the SP's in that Leaf set draw big money, even if they're commons, so I gotta think I'm gonna get priced out of a Paige at any grade.

Ah, well. That's for later. If the price gets too high, I can always apply a 'hesitation pitch.' For now, I'm enjoying having two Paige cards.

Nice 70T Hanburger! I'd love to acquire his '67 Philly RC, as I'm a die-hard 'Skins fan, but it tends to run high when graded at a decent number.

A couple more HOF's from The Monster. Down to 33 cards to reach my 520. (Not messin' with the Big Four.) Nice to finally win the Speaker, particularly with a less-than-common back.

Thanks. Philadelphias seem to suffer from poor centering, rough edge cuts, and they are VERY popular.

The original OJ is cool, but this is way better.

Hey, a version of that went for only a grand on REA last year. It could be yours, Jay!

(Or was this one of the Big Ten and you got rid of it?)

Doh! I screwed up. I've gone into syndication. Enjoy the repeats! I belong on TVLand.

However, the Waner is new.

I hope I don't create a double post since it looks like my first effort failed. I don't post much but I thought I'd share my recent Huggins & Scott pick up. My first tougher back. I have always thought the Cycle back was pretty cool.
