National pick ups

July 29 2006 at 11:01 PM

The National being 500 tables down from last year had pretty slim pickings. Anything nice you found were priced at auction prices (with juice). I think the main reason I go to the Nationals each year, is to keep in touch with many fellow collectors. Here are some items I picked up so Tammy knows I actually went out there..

I know some others had some good buys as well (Leon, Peter, Scott, Adam) to name a few..

Nice pick ups!
I'm not 100% sure but that cabinet card shows the Pinetrees B.B.C. from the Wesleyan Seminary in Kent's Hill, Maine.

I went to the National . . . but all I got was this lousy plastic bag!

I'll be posting some cards later. I had a great time and enjoyed meeting so many guys from the Forum.

Not much of a haul, unfortunately, but I did sell everything I came in with. Thanks, RM, for the Marquard.

I had never seen either one of these before so I grabbed them. Parke Wilson was a catcher who played 366 games in 7 years and hit .265.

The only D359 I saw in 4 days - from Leon. "I would rather have a hole in my card than a hole in my collection."



1923 Walter Mails game card. From Mark MacRae. First one I've ever seen.



N184 Kimball's. From Scott Brockelman.

Forget auction with juice prices, some folks were outright out of their minds. I couldn't believe the prices that some wanted for mid-grade T206s. Wonder where they pulled those numbers from???? I saw a few cards that peaked my interest but were either way out of my league, trimmed, or really worn. I did pick this up at Scott's table, which I'm quite happy with. However, I would consider this a borderline overgrade on SGC's part.

Only picked up a few things at the National, including these two strips with Alexander and Hornsby. Had a great time meeting many of you,

More cards from Levin

Bruce, impressive pick-ups, some extremely nice pieces. It was great meeting you and seeing that N172 Brouthers in person. Certainly one of the best out there.

Here are the two items I picked up from Dave and had graded on-site. I also picked up a PSA3 1888 Brouthers that is being crossed over.

I enjoyed the show and plan to make next year my 4th in a row.





Best Regards,
Joe Gonsowski

did you see Alan Silvers????

I heard we have a long time friend in common for the same reason!
We both got killer cards from him 10-15 years ago!

Doug Allen brought him to the Mastro dinner!

Picked this up from Steve on my way out Friday. Way out of my area but I love the visual & got a swinging deal on it! I was hoping some of our Cuban collectors could help. I was also kind of hoping that lovely creature in the front row is Effa Manley, but with my luck she is probably the local miss sugar cane queen, 1928.

Brian, I did see Alan Silvers and his son Kyle. Originally we were going to meet at the show Thursday at 1 pm but Alan wasn't feeling very well and decided not to come at all. Then Doug twisted his arm and they came to the dinner.

Probably half the good cards in my collection came from Alan.

I'm sorry we didn't get a chance to meet and talk in person.
