Picked up these two PSA 8s and fifteen PSA 7s. Now have two thirds of the N83 set with a 6.8 GPA.

Been wanting to add an N135 to my Type Collection for a long time.

Here's another set I'm glad is finally part of my collection:

1934 Roosevelt action picture.

Card was obtained by redeeming ten R103 wrappers.

Mentioned in Benjamin but omitted from the bible.

One side is an action picture which "moved" when the screen was used,

The other side is foil. Most likely the first foil card.

Among the rarest of president cards.

fantastic trade card for my core collection. Thanks Wonka! Top billing despite the following item.

Bit OT but ran across this 1968 photo T shirt featuring Warhol. Special to me because my mom is in it.........

Super hanging store card with grommet. Harlequins, cupids, and women with wings have a way of seperating me from my money.

Few odds and ends.

Great T Shirt Henry! That's from the days when I'd be thrown out of Max's Kansas City for being underage (no one really cared it was NYC in the '70's), I wanted see the bands. Your Mom must be really cool!

they held a minute of silence for her at Max's as she was quite well known there. I went there a few times in the mid to late 60's. Once a guy who picked me up hitching on the NYS thruway in 1968 was telling me about his harmonica playing and we wound up at Max's where he actually got to play for Leonard Cohen (I really suck at spelling). True story happy.gif

First a R701-9 Bowman Movie Star wrapper from 1948, a tough one to find. Dan, you might consider this for the Gallery.

I love the R70 Pho-to Gum wrapper graphics, but never has there been a more miss-matched wrapper to card set. Why would Shelby Gum put nursery rhyme cards in this wrapper? The set of cards is still referred to as "Humpty Dumpty". -Jack J.

From an old seemingly deliberate collection of singles.

I would guess this to be the highest number printed.

Previous high was #26

you've been busy! Signed Lillian looks "right" (I've reviewed quite a few - but it's always a leap of faith). Banner is great regardless of the flaws. You have flaws and you're not even that old. As a continuing point of information - I have mentioned the printer's proof marks like the one's in your sovereign piece in the past and suggested that although the image itself was perhaps used in a die-cut as well - the configuration of the markings at the perifery rather than next to the central image were with near certainty indicitive of a poster or similar. The piece above however was most likely a proof for the DIE-CUT. Notice that the hash marks are next to the central figure suggesting die-cut. I can say that there does exist a die-cut of the above figure thereby at least for the moment not ruling out my conjecture.

Your Duke's advertising mirror is quite nice. I have a slightly smaller version without any sort of insert (never was one). Is it sealed in the back and what's with the armature holding it? From the scan the condition appears to be exceptional for the age and materials.

While I still regularly search for and encounter Lillian items - I've relegated myself to "historian" as until you have it all - I apparently have no shot at winning rare or even at times pedestrian items that "just happen" to feature an image of Lillian. I can see you're taking this seriously and besides the accolades due you for the banners and posters which are of course of great significance - your tenacity in chasing down Lillian is fun to watch. Not blowing smoke up your *ss btw (which happens to be a real remedy used in earlier times as can be found on the interweb - isn't it wonderful) - just the way I'm seeing it......

I used to have some real passion like you have now which has waned a bit since leaving an environment that featured opportunities for the search and occasional acquisition. Mostly it's this board and a genetically driven appetite for stuff that fits my now truncated focus which sustains my interest - but I no longer have the passion on a day to day basis. I'm still married however to quite a few of my "children" and I still get excited about something newly discovered as well as exploring the history and production with someone that potentially cares, selling or trading b+ and better material without losing money, and making a tough score. The rest - not so much.

It's for all the usual reasons I suppose - after a while certain material becomes recognized as unatainable because it's acquisition is cost prohibitive, it's infrequently if ever encountered, or it's inextricably entrenched in a collection. It's also hard to keep up with all the auction houses large and small, search eBay, go to shows, and have a life happy.gif. The demands of the challenge begin to exceed the rewards.

Sadly that has resulted in the pursuit at times either feeling oppressive or not feeling fresh and engaging. I suppose that's why I like when questions arise relevent to the earliest cards and collectibles - it allows me to explore and in some ways re-visit my stuff and the reasons I have it to begin with.

no guarantees whether written or implied

obviously not edited for brevity or clarity - I removed some smiley faces as my mood suddenly changed happy.gif

Henry, as usual your post made me stop and think, re-read and wonder..... Unusual this time was the wonder. I'm rooting for you discover a previously unknown (affordable) tobacco treasure or something old & sufficient to get your colleting juices percolating again!
