Nice "Set". biggrin.gif

That was cool of Ted to do that for the Nichelle Nichols photo-auto.

Not a big fan of when a cut sig is literally "cut" from a photo (or worse yet the ones where they take them from other cards). When it is cut from a letter or a check I don't mind it and tend to like them. but I've blogged about that issue so I won't rant much more cut sigs, Mystery of Cut Sig SOLVED

those old postcards btw are what many of the old timers carried to canton for HOF festivities to hand out as pre-signed stuff or carried with them around town to hand to fans as a quick way to satisfy an auto hound, They are numerous and Im sure there are many thousands more in old scrapbooks waiting to be found!

this weeks showcase set is a double bonus

1981 & 1982 Donruss golf

Not expensive by any means but still Rookie cards of many of the golf worlds greats. Plus it would be 15 long years before another product came along

Always rumored to have some short printed cards, I think I built at least a set and a half out of a single box of the 1981 product and I bought the 1982 already collated.

Donruss was still in its infancy as a card manufacturer and these cards reflect the same style as the 81 baseball set in my opinion!

Neat, did not know they had golf cards in 81 and 82, remember them in 1990 by the infamous Pro-set. Course I did not pay much attention to cards in the 80s except for hockey.

Like Brian, I never knew they made golf cards in the 80s (or that Donruss made any). Nice set!

Week 3

My personal favorite of all time

I was addicted to the black borders, the photography, the nice informative backs.

In my opinion this set is #1 in all categories of all time! Hands Down

What a design job , so well done, UD brought it back with auto inserts the last couple of years in Ultimate and those are some of the most in demand autos from those sets!

Maybe in 3 parts though

1997 UD NFL Legends
