Not really. He is a Michigan man, though a few years behind me. Figured I had a shot at at least one 98. Those are some strong 9's. I should have them in hand by Monday. I'll put scans up next week.

Bamberger went from a 60 last time to an 80 this time. I suppose a one grade bump is not too unusual. Nice looking card. Powers deserved better.

Photobucket

Dropo has razor sharp corners. Too bad about the centering. Nuxhall is dead-centered, but SGC always hammers cards with any print defect.

Photobucket

Cream of the crop for this invoice. Craddock is a screamer, best card in the bunch. Nieman is not as nice as it looks, so that grade is a small gift. Typical centering for Bob Bowman, but rarely do you find such bright blue color. I'll take an 88 on that one any day.

Here's the Bunning. I haven't found the problem yet. So that's a crackout. As mentioned before, the Larkins are for sale, $10/each or $25 for all three.

Can anyone tell me why the Topps Larkin is not a 10? I can see the Donruss and Fleer might not be GEM, but I see nothing wrong with the Topps card.

Not sure on Larkin, but the Bunning has a sweat stain under the left armpit... \:\)

Bunning must've known that after winning 20 games for the Tigers in 1957, he'd have four 19-win seasons, but never another 20.

Jim Bunning is the only pitcher to have struck out Ted Williams 3 times in a single game.

Measure the Larkin. It has a tilt (to the right). Maybe that kept it from a 98.
