A tribe of T74 Booker Indians. Minimal creasing and exceptionally clean backs for this series. Happy New Year!

Arrived in the mail today....Henry Parker coin. Allegedly a tie in to the R109 Pirate's Picture Bubble Gum set. The coin is about the same size as a penny. The Henry Parker image on the coin traces back to card #61 of the R109 set.

Not much in the way of main stream non-sports cards but some interesting
odd and unusual items.

Three unknown. I thought they might be to a game, but I do not
know how they would be used, they are blank backed and have no
markings. I like the art work!

Umm, Charley? Is there a story to be told about that #4 you slipped in amongst the others? Or perhaps was this brought up on a thread I missed? Either way, if it's real, a big congrats.

FIRST, a public apology to Richard...

No score for this post

Dear Richard, I had been meaning to contact you for the longest time. When I finally gathered my thoughts I scanned old threads but could not find your email addy.

When I saw you post about a month back, I was soo relieved! Now, I had your email addy...but I had to gather my thoughts. Was going to email you privately..but in the interest of Civilty,Common Courtesy,Net54 Non Sport brothers and others.
I have decided to Publicly apoligize for my rather coarse and unfriendly remarks towards you last year? or earlier. You then promptly disappeared and I know that I went beyond just venting and "telling it like it is" add to that ..I most certainly was not " Showin the love" in the way I verbally took shots at you back then.

I AM SORRY, I ASK YOU TO FORGIVE ME.

I strive to be above board and honest in all my dealings, I do not hide behind my keyboard on the internet in blogs, chat, boards, forums and throw missles or flaming posts Annon., thats for little boys. I simply "Call'em like I see 'em".
In your case, I went overboard and it became personal.
I let you, myself and this board down.
This is precisely the behavior that has caused some well respected and talented collectors to "leave" here (Net54).

I did not see it at the time but my God soon prompted me to go back over that thread. While I did have "solid ground" for my argument/opinion...I Should never have treated you that way.

I went to my God, made my peace and now ask your forgiveness in that matter. It may seem insignificant to you but God showed me the error of my ways.

Thus, this Public Apology.
Again, I am sorry.

With that said...
The #4 strongman IS a Reprint..Courtesy of Todd Riley...Yes..you have missed the thread on this and also his post in the B/S/T area.
You can get your own #4 by contacting Todd and folking over a few dollars. Well worth the low price if not just to use as a conversation piece. Card is Well done and is pretty good repro (did I just say "Good" and "repro"!???) Anyhoo, It IS marked on the back REPRINT. Tip o the cap to the Riley's.


Thats the news from Lake Wobegon...



"Showin the love since 1967"

Charley,

I've never been apologized to so nicely before! I wish I could accept it, but I'm afraid you got the wrong Richard! You and I have never had a disagreement on this board, or anywhere (at least none of which that I'm aware). So, if there was something said, I missed it completely and was never offended. My guess is there was a "Richard W" who posted here a bunch in the past. That is a different card lover than this Richard Winters.

Back to the card (to avoid hi-jacking this pick-up thread). The treasure hunter inside of me is glad to hear it's a reprint. When the real card finally starts surfacing, I hope it's me who quietly slips it into a pick-up thread without fanfare.
Take care!

Courtesy of Ralph Perry via eBay, I picked up these 5 "uncut sheets" of A MAN IN WAR cards produced in 1981 by our own Les Davis. The first sheet of "Series III" was unfortunately missing, but whaddayagonnado? Each sheet is 8-1/2"x11" on thin card stock.

Les (or anyone else who knows), were these issued as subscription incentives for The Wrapper or sold as sets, and is the series complete at 6 sheets/36 cards? Also, is that your own artwork that graces the card fronts?

Just picked these up Thursday. They were published as supplements to The Chicago Sun.
They are 10-1/4" X 15". The one pictured is GENERAL GEORGE C. MARSHALL
from Sunday, May 24,1942.
Other that I got are --
(1)ADMIRAL ERNEST J. KING, Chief of Naval Operation, United States Navy -
Sunday, May 17,1942
(2)Lieutenant-General H. H. ARNOLD, Commander-in-Chief U.S.Army air Force - Sunday, July 12,1942
(3)Admiral WILLIAM D. LEAHY, Chief of Staff to the Commanding Chief -
Sunday, August 16, 1942
(4)Major-General CARL SPAATZ, Commanding General, U. S. Army Air Forces
in British Isles,Sunday, August 30, 1942
(5)Major- General RUSSELL MAXWELL, Commanding General Air Forces in
Middle East - Sunday, September 29. 1942
(6)Lieutenant-General BEN LEAR, Commanding General, Second Army, Hdqrs.
in Memphis, Tenn. Sunday, October 4, 1942

[IMG][linked image][/IMG]

But the one that really caught my eye is a double supplement from Sunday, October 11, 1942 picturing Lt. JACK DEMPSEY, U.S. Coast Guard Stationed at Manhattan Beach, N. Y. Took heavyweight title from Jess Willard following their bout on July 4, 1919, Toledo, Ohio and Commander GENE TUNNEY, U.S.N. - Became Heavyweight Champion after defeating Jack Dempsey on Sept. 23, 1926,
in Philadelphia, Pa. Retired undefeated July 31, 1928

Of course these are NOT true non-sports cards. I just hope you enjoy this type
of related material as much as I do.
