Wow, that Koufax looks crispy 4 mint corners. That Banks has sweet centering. In terms of trading Goldenhawk as long as you are happy with your new cards than it's a good deal, that Mays is amazing razor sharp corners no chipping there aren't many like that out there...

The Banks MVP Baseball Thrills card is awesome...the registry very clean and clear ... just the way a card should look and super centering! By the way, nice to see you at the BIG SHOW!

The one on top is the one i traded for in Chicago.Which one do u guys think would grade the highest in PSA ? I guess ill go with PSA on my 56 set.Im trying to get my sets in either PSA or SGC for each yr.These will have to stay PSA because i have several in PSA for these yrs.1952,53,55,57,60,61 topps & 54 Bowman.The 54 topps will have to stay SGC.The 58 set i was leaning toward SGC because the ones i have r a better grade than the PSA.The 56,59 & 62 topps,i havent made up my mind completely.I submitted 197 to PSA at the show.I also had 183 to submit to SGC but we couldnt get together on the price.They were all 58s.I can get a better bulk price at PSA & PSA is easier to find if u need to replace any.

The corners on Koufax are a bit deceiving. Three of the four have very slight touches, enough to keep it out of a 92-holder. But it does look mint from the scan due to the color, focus, registry and way better than average centering.

That card is the definition of eye appeal. At first glance the grader probably thought 92, but had to drop it to 88 upon further review.
#1 in 1959 Topps. Officially known as Assassin according to stanthemanfan 3/31/2014 and god of minor league basketball according to cammb.
