Not sure if anybody has posted about this recent find. Amazing pictures and article including unopened box and packs of Star Player candy cards including Walter Johnson (previously uncatalogued). Here is the link:

Amazing Find

March 2 2009, 10:19 PM 



Once again Robert Edward Auctions has proven itself to be the premiere source for the super rare
heretofore undiscovered and truly world class collectibles.

When one goes back before World War II, it is remarkable to realize how many great finds can be
attributed to the brilliant work of Sir Robert.

With a staff of two, he outsmarts "larger dealers' with 30 or 40 people, manages to uncover a plethora
of one of a kind collectibles and pays consignors in a a third of the time that his major competitors do.

Congratulations to Robert and his latest history making acheivement

that is amazing...reminds me of a candy distributor I used to go to as a kid when I visited my grandma on staten island. I'd buy unopened boxes of topps cards.and this was before you could just "buy unopened boxes of cards!"

I like how Rob is 'speechless', yet he finds the strength... Great stuff and a reason to keep going into attics.

Sorry. I had the first "dibs" post at 9:57 PM. I'll consider selleing you any dupes... Maybe.

If you were to win "one" of the Babe Ruth Star Player cards still in the wrapper, would you leave it as is or would you take it out of the wrapper???

Can it be graded while sealed in this type of wrapper?

great find

Rob and I spoke about these a few days ago and they are truly great items. It's nice to see this kind of hoard in a somewhat pristine state. regards

Thanks Jeff,

At least someone understands "dibs".

I'm thinking of reselling these before I actually own them, by listing them on several different boards, at different prices.

As long as I have a couple of good business models, I might as well blend them together!

If I currently had a Star Player Candy Ruth in my possession, my first thought would be "Sell! Sell! Sell!"

If I had four Ruth's...I'd keep one. I'd be tempted to open up the package and bust it loose too. If they've been valued at 20k, obviously putting four on the market is going to drop the value down some.


I'm wondering what the previously unknown Johnson will go for?

I'd have a hard time opening up one of those packages. And for what it's worth, the value of the Ruth in NM will surely go down due to the sudden influx into the market of these examples. As someone who loves the Star Player Candy issue, I'm not sure I've ever seen a cooler find. Has there ever been a find of cards inside a pack with gum from an earlier date?
