The first round of grades from our Texas collection is beginning to arrive!
As expected, there are a fair number of 7s and 8s among the 1959, 1961 and 1962 baseball and 1967 hockey sets, with a few higher.
This collection is loaded with fresh cards with fantastic eye appeal. Stay tuned for more details!
One of the most amazing components of our recent Texas Find was a massive cache of autographed 1952 Topps cards.
Not enough to be a complete set (no Mantle, for instance), the collector clearly acquired many duplicates to be used as trade bait. The result is this enormous box of cards, each one autographed.
There are some pretty amazing treats in this box. We’re reluctant to report on any of them in particular, until they’ve been authenticated, but suffice to say that this one will be in the first batch to go to PSA:
That is, of course, an autographed Frank Campos “black star” variation – it’s got to be the only one in existence, right?
