Like the privilege of decanting and pouring the first glass of a rare Claret - I will endeavor to rise to the task and hope the following to be worthy. My round album, N162 Keefe, 3 different somewhat distressed BANNERS (no frames). Finally and perhaps most special and important despite the round album being one of my holy grails is the much appreciated "extra" Marty secretely put into a package he sent me to conclude a trade we made. He knew I had been looking for such a box and sent it to me - free - gratis - and it's in quite nice condition. I couldn't be happier so many thanks go out to Marty yet again. All that and the 2 duplicate low grade N36 indians I got each sold for 86.00! More times than not I'm the bug - this time the windshield.

Beauties Henry,

Some great looking Tobacco stuff Henry. It's always a thrill to knock something off a long-term want list.

Now to get back on track, a couple of wrappers. - Jack J.

compared to mine it's empty. He does deal in airplane parts and boat motors as per my conversation with him over the phone. As for a wrapper putting us back "on track" - depends on one's perspective. I will admit to wishing I could collect the Indiam gum cards and wrapper. I wake-up sweating - throw some cold water on my face - and it's all good again happy.gif

HENRY 'EXTRA'

Hello Henry:

Loved your photo display and many thanks for mentioning my name BUT all good things must come to an end here.

I cut and pasted the following from your chat line message above:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
is the much appreciated "EXTRA' , MARTY secretly put into a package he sent me to conclude a trade we made. He knew I had been looking for such a box and sent it to me - free - gratis -
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This (extra marty).was strictly A MISTYPE ..It should have read EXTRA MONEY !!!

I am looking for EXTRA MONEY !!

Never forget Barrett Strong's famous lyric 'Money don't get everything it's true, but what it don't get I can't use'.

Henry - Just kidding with the "back on track" crack. I love seeing everything posted, including things I don't personally collect. The cigarette albums and banners just blow me away. I've tried the cold water in the face trick, but it doesn't seem to work very well. A quick peek in my wallet works better. -Jack J.

if my tobacco cards had come in wrappers we'd be rastling........... I always like chasing the "side elements" in my hobbying - like the cases dags and ambro photos came in for the most part over the photos themselves - the advertising a bit over the cards.
As for Mr. "T" I came out quite a bit wealthier as a result of Marty sleeping a certain auction. I like what I parted with but it cost him a bit more than if he had been able to keep his eyes open. He still came in well below what I've sold my part for in the past and I was a bit surprised by what the two low grade indians brought - not that they're not "worth" it - just seems most things selling at a discount these days. Honestly thought going in I'd just get my opening.... Marty should get a new phone - I hear they take guality pix and have an alarm. I do wish I'd met him earlier on as he really is a lot of fun - and he would have had more time to take advantage of me.
They just defeated the medical pot law here - I told my wife she'll just have to live with that pain in her ass.............

Big Newsboy Lot

Score 5.0 (1 person)
November 6 2014, 11:24 AM 

Lot of (52) Cabinets, (7) Falk Cabinets.....(4) of which identically match their green bordered N566 Newsboy counterparts (with Lillian Russell) and the rest N566 Newsboys with Sir Arthur Conan Doyle among others. A few dupes. If you see a dupe you need, I'd love to trade for cabinets I don't have..........

It looks like you had a great day Henry. The album is amazing. The A&G pictures along with the Old Gold
picture are classics. I would love to have any of them. Now a question did all Sweet Caporal boxes come
with 2 "cards". I do not know what they call them as I don't know cigarette packs. Congrats on a super pick up.
May be "PICK UP OF THE YEAR" in my book with that album included.

lucky guy - our leader with a great month so far. Great stuff Tom. Love those discs, do you know
how they were distributed?
Also, The Cabinets you picked up are loaded with "stars" of the time. A lot of them are
formally trained (Shakespeare, etc.) . I saw Richard Mansfield & some others there, they were
big stars from what I have read. A group of really nice cards. tm

Hey Tom,

It looks like two of those R79s would be new additions to the gallery. How do your remaining twenty stack up against the gallery reference; any others that could be added?

Hi Tony , The 'Birds were popular round our parts .
I was lucky enough to pick up the Thunderbird set in a condition that matches the easily available 2nd series , makes the set flow .

You remember this little guy ?
Also picked up a nice set of this seldom seen issue .

Good home point against strong opposition happy.gif
