i was thinking about doing this set in psa graded form . i know there are a few big $$ cards , but im wondering if there are many of these cards available . or would my time and money be better spent on another set . im not looking to do this set in a hurry . curious to hear some opinions .
This is a nice set to build depending on the grade range you are thinking about. Although not overly difficult, there have not been enough cards graded by Psa so the bidding gets pretty competitive on anything 5 or higher. You may want to try buying some cards raw and send them for grading yourself. Jim.
my worry with buying raw vintage cards is if they are real and if they have been trimmed or recolored . i was thinking of trying for psa 4 or 5's . but i guess i would get what i can for now and upgrade depending on what becomes available . i did pickup a psa 4 harvey jackson the other day for a decent price .
Go for it Mike - its a classic set and mid range cards come up for sale fairly often. 5 or better get a lot of bids. 3s and 4s are relatively cheap IMO.
The 30s sets do not draw the same high number of bidders that the C55/C56/C57 bring out. But I believe an increasing number of collectors are finishing graded 'C' sets and they will likely move into the 30s so get yours now....
This is my favorite pre-war set. Why? Just an eye appeal thing I guess. I recently registered a set on the registry after picking up a PSA 5 Clancy at the Toronto show from Cut-throat Larry. I worked out a fair trade + cash with him.
I will be after PSA 4 - 6 cards. I may add a 7 here or there if affordable. Time is no factor, if it takes 5 yr's to complete, then so be it.
