A set I'm working on and I have this card in worse shape. About 2 years since I last picked one up from this set. have about 8.

Interesting side note. My friend and neighbor from a few doors down had the last name of Sickles. Direct descendent. Something bad happened to General Sickles but I forget what it was. I need to check.

The General had personal problems:

Born to a wealthy family in New York City, Sickles was involved in a number of public scandals, most notably the killing of his wife's lover, Philip Barton Key II, son of Francis Scott Key. He was acquitted after using temporary insanity as a legal defense for the first time in United States history. This became a defense associated with 'crimes of passion'.

Do not piss your neighbor off!! happy.gif

He also had health and competency issues:

His military career ended at the Battle of Gettysburg in July 1863, after he moved his III Corps (without orders) to an untenable position where it was virtually destroyed. He was wounded by cannon fire and had to have his leg amputated.

Do not take any military advice from your neighbor! happy.gif

An t64 just popped up on eBay with a price tag of 400 bucks. It's in decent shape, but that seems steep. What would those of you in the know expect to pay for these cards?

Just found the card your referring to, that card is VG at best. I haven't looked at mine in quite some time but as I recall they're Ex-M at least.

Technically Good I would think but the major faults are the corners. Not too bad.

Scaryclown, do you really have some? I may be interested, just not sure $500 is doable unless Lee or Jackson or high grade.

Yes, I have some, not sure who or how many, maybe 4 or 5. I stash stuff and don't look at it for years. It would take me a while to find them (probably a couple weeks) I move slow. Prices are not written in stone. And you are correct as to good condition as the card is actually missing a piece on the bottom right. So this is probably illegal on this site but how do I contact you?
