My collecting for this year: get busier on 50 Bowman baseball and probably dive into some 54 Topps baseball....all of this dependent on my finally deciding to be "done" with 53 Topps and stop upgrading!!!!

I agree love the safe!! I met my initial goal of 60% on the set. Im at 70% right now and my new goal by the end of this year is to be 99%. Im going to have to save up for the #433 Poncho Herrera Error card as it goes for a few hundred up to a thousand or better. Its in the registry so i think you gotta have it to make it past 99%. Im also going to do my best to upgrade all my cards that are sitting at SGC 40 and below. Did I mention I love this hobby!!!


Wish you had this one then:

Who pays over 15k for that card?
Or even 7K at this auction: http://www.goodwinandco.com/LotDetail.aspx?lotid=4986
This one is better, almost 3K, prices are dropping: http://robertedwardauctions.com/auction/2010/698.html
This sold back in 2009 for over 1700:
http://www.memorylaneinc.com/site/bid/bidplace.asp?itemid=13480&getauctionid=72
I found this one sold on Ebay for 600: http://www.ebay.com/itm/1958-Topps-Panch...d-/190747179667

1958 Topps Pancho Herrera, Missing "a" Error #433 SGC 88 NM/MT 8 - Highest Grade Known! By far, this is the finest of only three graded by SGC. For vintage card enthusiasts the T206 "Magie" misspelling is the king of the printing mishaps. Hobbyists who specialize in the 1950's have the famous Pancho Herrera missing "a" variation from the 1958 Topps baseball edition. This particular card also displays an unworldly fading of the "r" as well. Although the "Magie" error accounts for over a full third of the submitted "portrait" examples, only 3 of the 40 '58 Herrera cards submitted are the missing "a" variation. Adding to its uniqueness and desirability is the fact that this card is of unquestionable quality. This particular beauty has rich and lush coloring, a bright white frame, a perfect layer of gloss and four razor sharp corners. It is a hobby classic and one of the finest examples known to date.

Still i would not buy that card. Sorry no sir No way. Even if i found that in a basement find, I would not known who he was and just put it into my crap pile of cards.
Makes me wonder if theres a 10K card in my crap pile?

What makes that card so expensive? There are other printing errors at a fraction of that one. It is not really a true printing error because on most of these cards you can faintly see the "a" that is missing. Whoever started the run up on that card is a genius. I wouldn't give you $50 for that card.(OK I would just to sell it to some sucker.)

My collecting goals are:

1.Pass Stuckmeyer in the registry for 55 Bowman Football

2. Upgrade about 25% of my 52 Topps to SGC 80 or better.

3. Help Blackie in his quest for quality 58 Topps

4. Convince Goldenhawk that he doesn't need his 52 Topps high numbers and he should donate them to the CAMMB Charity.

Thanks Tony!

I almost forgot you were working ont he 55 Bowman Football set. I will move my "sight picture" over the 55 Bowmans and see if I can find any pickups you need for your set. I gotta go check your set to see what your needing.


Yeah the Herrera error card is crazy. I see one raw last year that was not on anybodies radar as being the error on ebay and it went for $125 bucks. The guy (a CU member) then submitted to PSA and got a 5 or 6 out of the deal and make a buttload of money. Sometimes I wonder if that card should be in the registry at all. Its not the Yellow varations but a misprint or weak print of the last "a" in Herreras name. Wonder if we can remove it from the registry.......hmmm??

Thanks KRB. I noticed there is a 15% buyers fee. I usually stay away from that bogus charge. Thanks anyway.
