That is a nice Aaron.

I bet it is worth more now as an Sgc 92 compared to a Gai 9 even
though it is the same exact card.

WHY these two --- I still need #307 (J. Phillips) and #406 (Bob Hale)? I mean are they very hard to find in high grade nicely centered? Or just happen to be the last two? [/quote]


They are both very hard to find in high grade. Unfortunately I just missed an ebay auction for both cards that looked like they would have crossed for sure. But at the time I had a couple of PSA 8s at SGC for crossing that ended up failing after the fact.

With these 2 cards I have completed my set. I have a couple of upgrades on the way, but all the holes are filled. It took a little over 2.5 years to get it done, working exclusively on one set. A fellow SGC Registry Member was nice enough to break up his set in order to sell me the Phillips card. I cracked out 2 PSA 7 Hale cards and sent them to SGC, one came back an 88. I predicted long ago that Hale would be the last card to complete the set, and it proved to be the case. It is one tough card to find in high grade.





Thanks to all those who have helped me along the way, and to those who have watched me build it on this message board.

Matt

Hi Matt~

I applaud you for the set you have assembled. I am amazed by each and every card you have placed in it! The 1957 Topps SGC Registry set you have put together has got to be the very finest ever...for most of the cards I have had the privilege to look at through your posts and on the registry have been the best my eyes have ever laid hold on! You deserve many kudos for your efforts and time spent in amassing such a collection. Also, I would like to personally thank you for displaying a scan of each card on the Registry so that we all could enjoy them. It was fun to watch you put this set together...I came in when it was nearly completed over a year ago...and how fitting...right at the time your most gorgeous Brooks Robinson RC came back to you from SGC! I will always remember that card!! Now, onto your next adventure (which has already begun for you). I look forward to following your next quest and seeing the cardboard gold you come up with! I'm sure it will be hard to top this set, but there's no doubt the set you are doing now will be stunning. Congrats for your completion! NOW...bbo's warning of last year kicks in...sell the set and he said he's gonna do some ugly things to you! \:\) lol Thanks, again, Matt! It has been fun!

MATT'S AWESOME 1957 Topps SGC Registry Set

EARL
