I only have one card with the Burdick stamp on the back but it was great finding it and I wish I had more. Cool card.


I was the under bidder on both of those strips. I'm trying to stay within a budget (as I know you are as well); sometimes you have to keep the bids low and hope that you get something. Nice pickups.

I must say that the volume and breadth of what rolls through these monthly pickup threads is really impressive. Some of you guys must have entire rooms dedicated to card storage. I'll second Jack's sentiment and say thanks to everyone for sharing in these threads.

Thanks, Daniel! I'm trying to stick to a budget this year, as well, which is why those are the only ones I ended up with out of the several complete strips that have shown up on eBay recently. The items on my want list I'm still paying what I need to for (within reason). Everything else is getting a low-ball. I've missed out on some good stuff already this year (I'm still kind of halfway kicking myself on a lot of Blony paper items I missed out on at the beginning of the year), but hopefully my wallet will thank me by the beginning of 2018.

February Pick-ups

Thanks to Marty, I now have half the Red Barn's Space Contest cards. These nicely chronicle an event that I remember well. We sat on the edge or our sectional couch watching our Magnavox television, my folks, brother Leon and sister Bonnie ... all gone now. Different times - exciting times. - Jack J.

JJ, nice post up and personal memories. I think almost all here can relate.
What an exciting time as Americans it was.

Not much of a science buff , but now (NASA) are talking about the TRAPPIST system which is like 231 TRILLION miles from us!

The older I get , its the cards AND the back stories that get me.
