July Pickup

July 20 2017, 5:18 PM 

I am pleased to announce that the mail today brought me my own graded set of Davy Crockett Orange/Tan back cards. I know that PSA does not recognize them but those who follow this board know that they exist. This set is #17 on the PSA registry, and I can certify that it is, as alleged, a complete set of tan backs.

I had started amassing tan backs in an attempt to put a set together and have over 20 available to pass along to others who may be trying to build a set. Anyone interested should contact me at bvb5366@hotmail.com and if I have it I will send it to them.

Joe,
That's great! That really means you have the #1 set of orange/tan as we recognize it even if the TPG's don't.

Summer has been chaotic for me. But I have managed to pick up a few odds and ends...

A few Becker Prize cards and an Indian wrapper...

A Flying Thing I needed...

Some Kromo Gravure movie stars...

Misc. bread labels...

Been looking for these blue Wacky Wax Dinosaur cards/stickers forever! Finally have a whole set...
[linked image]

This is pretty neat! By Chris Benjamin, it is from 1987 and explains all about the litigation in the lawsuit about Garbage Pail Kids. The cards (and wrapper) were available via a mail-away offer inside. Supposedly only 100 sets were made.

They even did a nod to some classic card designs (can you name the originals?)...

PS: Hey Jack, do you have this wrapper?

Jack - Finally I have one you don't have - HA!

I just read the GPK booklet. Pretty fascinating. One of the most striking things I found was that Mr. Benjamin kind of slammed Topps (and others) for making money on GPK. He also wrote positively about OPC saying how they refused to sell more GPK on principle after the lawsuit even though they admitted it would have probably been their best seller. Ironically, he himself was profiting from the book (for $5 each) plus the sets of cards (for $4 a pack - which in itself is pretty funny since real packs of GPK were selling for 25 cents at the time). What a marketer he was!

I just noticed that the doll furniture boxes were expanded to a set of 20 and they reissued the first 15 again so there is a variation since each contains a checklist of the available titles. Interesting....

A couple more for me this July.

First and foremost from the "this community is awesome" department, two cards from Jon Hardgrove. The Mother's Cookies Sports Cars brings me to within one to finish (#14). Jon assures me that I'll have trouble finding that particular card. The Bowman Antique Autos finishes my set!

[linked image]

A complete set of the lower numbers (1-100) of R177 Zoom Airplanes. Was a real bargain and I love the little typed notes indicating the twenty-five non-issued cards. From the same seller as Todd's Wacky Wax dinosaurs I believe. There was a mixed color high number set as well but After the Tom Mix pickup this month and the National next week I had to pass on that group.

[linked image]

And a complete set of R169 Cameron Warships, again from the same seller. Missed out on Moderator Tom's set earlier this year (due to my procrastination) so happy to get this particular set.

I really like those German sets, Ryan. A very underappreciated part of this Hobby.

Mark,

Awesome job completing that Heinz master set and those colored border low number Zooms are the first that I have seen. Awesome stuff.

Yes those German cards are kind of interesting and not that it's any big deal but I think the reason you can't find those butterflies catolouged anywhere might be that they all appear to be moths to me. I could be way off base.

I bet you are correct

Now that I look closer, they definitely seem like moth cards.

Moths

Thanks for the clarification

Thanks gents for the correction on the butterflies to moths!

Frank, I sure wish I could speak German these days. I poo-pooed it in High School and it would have been really useful now.

Auf Deutsche

July 23 2017, 7:16 PM 

Ryan, in those days Pre-Med required 4 years of German because supposedly most medical research was published in that language. That is untrue. It's English by far. I can read German pretty well, but I'm certainly not fluent in speaking it. At Fordham, I'm certain one of my professors was a closet Nazi!

July Pick-ups

July 26 2017, 4:14 PM 

Here are a "Special Batman" wrapper and an American Caramels "Cannon Ball" wrapper(?). I don't believe the A.C. wrapper is associated with any cards, but there just aren't any A.C. wrappers to be had. Why is this? Where are all the wrappers to the A.C. sets like "Navy Caramels", "Circus Caramels", "Easter Caramels, "Flag Caramels" or "Wild West Caramels". Cards for all these sets specifically refer to, "...one of which is wrapped with every (enter the name here) caramel". Any ideas? By the way, the train pictured is probably the M-10000 Union Pacific steam-lined train put in service in February 1934.

I like these E161 Ghirardelli North American Wild-life cards even though the paper stock and printing are pretty bad. Also, this is the first E48 card I've gotten. - Jack J.
