Actually, since I haven't had time to post much lately, these are more like April through June pickups.
Last seven I needed for the Blatz set.
When he was about 7, my dad collected half of the "Zorro" set. He passed them on to me sometime when I was in high school. One of my goals this year was to complete that set. Thanks to four different vendors at the Philly Non-Sports Show last month, I was able to make that happen.
Apparently these were either soaked from an album or stored in a damp place. The eBay listing didn't mention that, but for about 50 cents per card, I really can't complain.
The sticker and card in the first column are from the Fleer set. The rest are Cocoa Puffs premiums.
That's a "Pulver's Pictures" card at the bottom right. Very happy to cross that off my "type" list.
Last 11 I needed for the "Yule Laff" set.
It's not in the greatest condition, but...
...how many "Fighting Marines" ad panel cards am I ever going to have the chance to own?
I had all four of the exhibit actress cards individually, but I thought it would be neat to have them in an uncut panel.
Sorry this one came out blurry.
Last five I needed for the "Troopers" portion of this set.
Not sure what country these are from, but I like them.
Wish the coating wasn't so worn, but it is what it is.
I was really surprised I won this lot.
"Wise Ties" has been on my want list for a long time.
Never thought I'd actually see either one of these, much less have the chance to buy both within two hours' time! But that's one of the great things about collecting non-sports... you never know what opportunities are waiting just around the corner.
