Yes, he has some nice 57's. I've never looked closely, but I suspect the best ones are commons like the 59's I find. Which ones in particular should I look for, or just any nice ones?



I am missing card #s: 5, 149, 154, 201, 287, 288, 307, 333, 398, and 406. I would take any of these in 88 or better quality.

I would also be interested in any commons you thought would pull a 92 or 96, if they would upgrade my set.

I'll see what I can find. If that's all you need, I can only imagine how tough they are to find in high grade. I still have over 40 cards in 1959 I'd like to upgrade from 84 or worse. Plus another 225 or so that are "merely" 86. An 86 is fine with me since it's better than NM, which is what I collect. But if I see a nice one that could improve upon that, I usually take it.

To be down to 10 cards, I fear what it will take me to finish mine from that point. Some may just have to remain 84.

These are not for sale, but will go in my Registry set. The undergrades (cards these replaced) are for sale and are listed in a B/S/T thread.

Waited a long time to find a 2nd year Roseboro this nice. A HUGE upgrade from my 84.
Photobucket

Likewise on Solis, a tough card for me. Another LARGE upgrade from my 84.
Photobucket

Finigan's last card, this is also a bear to find in high grade. I'm fortunate to find it raw. I passed on a PSA 8 about a year ago as the auction got away from me. Glad it did. I like this one better and it does nothing for PSA sales.
Photobucket

Also Hegan's last card (his son Mike's rookie is a high number 1967). I've got two of these in 88, but my first one is a bit o/c and the colors are nicer on this one, too. So, yes, the other 88 is for sale, not this one.
Photobucket

Pena rookie is true bear of a card. Only 9 have ever been graded in any grade by SGC and just one higher than this one. Randy's set probably has the 92, and it must be stunning if it's better than mine. I am thrilled to have scored this one in raw form and glad SGC got to grade it.
Photobucket

Submitted a PSA 7.5 as a crossover earlier this year, but SGC didn't agree to cross it. So it sold. Recently found this one raw and it made my target grade of 86. Tough card for me, so I'm glad to put it behind me for now.
Photobucket

Shantz in PSA 7's go for $180-$200 all the time. My 84 is o/c both ways, but has nice colors. This one is a little better centering-wise and the colors are comparable. At $5 plus a grading fee, how could I go wrong?
Photobucket

Another brutally tough card. I actually think my 84 could be a better card since it's centering is dead-on 50/50. But 86 is my target grade on this set, so I'm leaning toward using the 86 and selling the 84. Somebody's gonna get the greatest NM 7 Amaro Rookie on the planet.
Photobucket

I've subbed more Romano rookies than just about any other card trying to improve on my 84. Finally found one that SGC agreed with me on. I've had some killer 84's, so I'm happy to put this one behind me for a while.
Photobucket

Schmidt's another elusive card I've submitted many of trying to upgrade. They all seem to come back 84 due to centering or a printer smudge on the upper left side border. This 86 has neither problem, so I'm a happy collector.
Photobucket

I'm showing this 84 (1) because it's an upgrade to my other 84 Moore and (2) because it's a dang nice card for the grade. Good centering seems to elude this 1959 pennant-winning White Sox pitcher.
Photobucket

Let me know if you're interested in any of the lesser grade cards these replaced. Most are scanned and priced in a B/S/T 1959 thread.

Good looking cards and nice narrative. Why don't you keep 96s for your set?

Rare to find raw and frankly above my pay grade to buy them already graded. I've subbed a few that came back 96: Colavito, Dave Sisler, Hank Foiles and the Herrera come to mind. Maybe a Maglie? I can buy several 88's or 92's for the price of one 96. Bottom line, it's just a matter of focus and setting boundaries. If I color too far outside the lines, I spread myself too thin and would never be satisfied with just a handful of mint 96 cards.
