Thanks Scott and thanks Tony. I do like the centering....wishing the top left and right corners were sharper against the blue but its still a nice card and glad to finally own one.

Nice pick up on the Rose Rookie Rob!

It is indeed very nicely centered.

No offense meant here, but the "Floating Head" Pete Rose Rookie has always been a very unappealing card to me personally, Especially in comparison to the beautiful full card 64 and 65 issues.

Very true John and I agree but ive always wanted this card. I do think the 64 is much much better looking card.

Wowzers Tony! That's a great card of Jimmy Brown bro and an SGC 86 grade is a nice bump from a PSA 7. Your 66 Philly Football sets coming together well.

Indeed a Nice looking Jim Brown!

Its nice to see some vintage football cards on the boards here.

Regardless of the "Label" assigned to it and wheather it "Bumped" or not can always change as even TPGing is still an opinion and subjective call.

While the "Labels" can change the one thing that remains unchanged is the "Card", its still the same card regaurdless of the label.

I would like to see more of Tony's 66 Philly set!

Very Nice


Here's a few of my latest Football Pick ups:

Cracked out this 69 Jerrell Wilson for my set. Ive been a bit disappointed with the quality of the past few PSA 8's Ive cracked, But the Wilson went the other way, Much nicer than other 8's Ive cracked.



1974 Dwight White Crack Out. The 74 Set with the goal post design is just so tough with side to side centering. Im to the point on this set where upgrades are far and few between, but got a steal on this card for $13. The Ray Guy and Bert Jones Rookies have been eluding me for years now.



Last but not least are a few cards I picked up for one of the only graded sets Ive been working on. At this point Im starting to think I may never been able to complete my 1971 Topps SGC Registry Set in 88 or better. The availability of SGC cards is just not out there. There are 4-5 on Ebay right now that I need, but the terrible centering prevents me from adding them to my set.




There has been talk about Claude Humphrey once again being on the Senior HOF ballot. Nothing against Claude, he was a great player, but if a Senior Atlanta Falcon is what they are after there is No question that player is Tommy Nobis.

Take Care Guys!
John
