In addition to the high-priority cards below, I’m always interested in pre-1970 cards of HOFers. For older cards, I am happy with no major creases, markings, or alterations. For the newer cards (1960+), I tend to shoot for VG with decent centering if I can. Thanks for taking a look!
FOR MY TOP 100 DISPLAY
Am working toward two side-by-side framed displays of 50 cards each, featuring the Top 100 players from 1933-1980. See related post.
1933 Goudey Babe Ruth (yellow or red)
1934 Goudey Lou Gehrig (either one)
1935 Diamond Stars Luke Appling
1936 World Wide Gabby Hartnett
HANK AARON COLLECTION
1955 Topps Doubleheaders
1958 Hires Root Beer
1959 Home Run Derby
1960 Lake to Lake
1964 Topps Stand-ups
1959 FLEER TED WILLIAMS
I love the look of 1934-36 Diamond Stars and would make this my goal if I ever wanted to complete a pre-War set. No Ruth and Gehrig on the checklist sure helps. At the moment, here are the cards I DO have.
- Rogers Hornsby
- Carl Hubbell
- Mel Ott
- Bill Terry
- Pie Traynor
- Ducky Medwick
SIR ISAAC NEWTON
See this post for the many Newton cards my son and I already have and the handful we need.
