I got the T51 Murad College Series Amherst #23 from a board member who knew it was the last one I needed for the Master set. Thanks for the trade, Phil!

That's great John. Can't be too many master sets out there. These four R44 Don't Let It Happen Over Here complete my set. I started this set and R48 Film Funnies at the same time; I'm not even close on the Film Funnies but very happy to have this one complete.

In 1979 Warner Bros issued cards in packs to promote its artists, so this is a Prince "rookie card".

Great haul Ken. I have never seen the Krinx Animal cards and love them. They are a lot like the "Kinderbeast" cards which I also like. - Jack J.

1932 Good Year Blimp Card

No score for this post
September 10 2017, 10:19 AM 

I picked this one up recently. The German card market has a wealth of cards that seem fairly undiscovered on the other side of the Atlantic. This set is one of them in the fact that it contains the earliest known Good Year Blimp Card...the "Pilgrim." While the Pilgrim wasn't the first blimp built by Good Year, it was the first to have the words Good Year printed on the side. This 1932 German "Die Eroberung Der Lift" (The Conquest of the Air) set was the first to capture the iconic Good Year Blimp image on a card. In fact, the only other cards I can find of the early Good Year blimps are postcards. This set was made to collect and paste into an album which was typical of the German tobacco sets of this era. Surprisingly, this small lot of cards I won at auction survived this pasting fate. Köberich catalogues this set as the 20703-5 and it chronicles the history of human flight over 234 cards from mechanical wings on humans to passenger aircraft and blimps. Each card measures approximately 2 7/17" x 1 9/16".

I think the Third Reich made German cards basically uncollectable. That and the language barrier.

I wouldn't say that, John. There are many, many really nice German issues from the prewar era and they are quite popular. I have an extensive type collection of German cards from the era (boxing). What makes many of them less desired is their abundance. Cards like the Sanella issue are easily found but really nice additions to a collection nevertheless:

You can also plug any card back into Google translate and get a pretty good translation.

Nice German Boxing Card! Yeah, I don't believe the Nazis killed German Card Collecting. Same with Japan. I think language is a hurdle, but the biggest is the lack of checklists in my opinion. No one knows what's in each set so it's hard to chase what you don't know is there.

It's been a little slim this month, but I'm very pleased to add this V276 Fighting Forces wrapper to the collection. 1939 was a great year for wrappers - Spy Gum, World In Arms, War News Pictures. - Jack J.

That is a cool Lindberg card. The artwork is amazing on German cards for sure.

Germans do things better than anyone else; just ask them and they will tell you so. Seriously, I like all those German cards but I don't need anything else to collect so I';m happy to see other's foreign pickups posted here.

Jack, that wrapper is gorgeous. love the graphics on it.

My effort to thicken up the pickup thread. I'm up to half the Heroes of Pearl Harbor set now; two bump on the Playbucks, three graded cards in my sweet spot (love all three sets), and a Cops and Robbers with evidence tab attached. That's right, with evidence tab attached!

Massive pickups. The lucky penny coin cards are pretty nice. Master set collectors need them for their 1957 sets.

Some R714-18 Robin Hood cards to get closer to the set, a handful of R25 Yip Roper and Crafty Keen booklets and an R20 Battleship card.

Here's a group of Canadian cards including a V278 HOW card, four V275 Empire Defenders and two V276 Fighting Forces.

[img][linked image][/img]

Three V11 Cowan's Canadian Forest Trees cards, the first I've gotten. I was surprised how small they were. Also an R206 Fleer Mask.

Two new wrappers, a pre-card Topps wrapper and a variation on the Horrors of War wrapper. - Jack J.

Yes, this post is not about what I got, but what I didn't get. I bid on the four cards I still needed for the 200 card W545 "World War I Leaders, Scenes, Insignias: Strip Cards". Wouldn't you know it, I won three of the four. Some OTHER COLLECTOR (that's as nice as I can put it) stole the #19 Winston Churchill card right out from under me. Now I've got 199 of the 200 cards. When is another WC card going to come up? You can bet I'll bid big time if it does. No more whimpy bids ... this is WAR!!! -Jack J.

Really, congratulations to whoever got the card. I hope it's one of our folks. Now I have another card to place on the "One or Two cards you need to complete a set" thread.

Jack,
What a great idea! We need a new monthly thread like "SEPTEMBER NON PICK-UPS". In there we can post all the non-sport "fish" that got away.

Ha! I was thinking about this when I posted about the Angry Signs prototype cards. I have at least half a dozen stories about cards I should have bought but didn't. Fortunately, I've been able to track where a lot of those cards ended up. My current plan is to outlive their new owners and then take advantage of that "second chance offer"!
