Here is a card from a set that I plan to at least get the rest of my Homie teams (Nationals and Orioles) and possibly build the whole set. I love the look of this set it is simple yet detailed. The coloring and the overall design gives it an art-deco look.

Pretty cool sliding into base pic. Could do without all the gold leaf/imprinting though.

A much needed upgrade to complete a Team Set (almost 50 years later). IN my effort to complete the 1965 Topps set (Strive For '65) a few weeks back I had technically finished the Team Set for the Washington Sentators, however one of the cards was in major need of an upgrade:

1965 Topps Baseball 21 Don Blasingame Senators

especially because of the back:

ICK glued paper debris, yuck.

So thanks to a trip to my LCS and $2 later...

and the back:

That is MUCH better. So now I have the Complete 1965 Topps Washington Senators Team Set

Oh Pooh. Is anyone else having this problem? Is my link bad or is Steve's eyesight just being selective? unsure.gif

Time for the semi-annual post. or as I say on my blog "The Card of Whenever". Here is a semi-recent post from my reguler Card Blog

1942 Play Ball 1983 Reprint 32 Mel Ott NY Giants

I got it as part of a surprise PWE package from a blogger many months ago sometime last year. The technique that this guy uses for sending stuff in PWEs is pretty cool he cuts up regular 9 pocket card pages horizontally and fills the 3 pocket "mini sheet" with cards sometimes going to the limit of about 4 cards per pocket. The PWE is a standard business sized #10 envelope. The 3 pocket sheet row keeps the envelope from having that one or two card sized bump in it. Of course he has to use 2 stamps instead of one but hey so far I haven't had any problems with his stuff.

A few weeks back in checking to see what I still needed in the team sets for my 1974 Topps Baseball set build for the Orioles I noticed I need one of those annoying multi-player rookie cards. They are annoying in the fact that often times they are hard to find just because one of the players went on to superstardom making the card difficult to find inexpensively. I made a post for my regular card blog about some of the team sets I had completed or almost completed to help with my overall '74 set build. While scanning a few cards to show off. I chose the Brooks Robinson card to represent the O's.

user posted image

While looking at the card getting it ready for scanning I noticed the back and the paper loss damage. EEEEEKKK!

user posted image

**Sigh** Now I need to get an upgrade copy. Yep paper loss and the part with the top of the AVG column is barely holding on to the rest of the card.

I think I got it like that but didn't notice at the time, or noticed but soon forgot it was damaged.
