OK so here is where I will put some of my Fave cards from my vast never ending collection. First off in my TCC BLOG I usually mention the latest cards I have gotten from Group Breaks, Ebay, Trades etc. I also try to mention those cards in the Mail Day board. I have some of my cards in My TCC Gallery but not very many and I don't think there is much traffic there. I think SHOW & TELL is the highest traffic area to show off part of my Collection.

I'm a life-long fan of both the WASHINGTON REDSKINS and the LOS ANGELES/ST. LOUIS RAMS. Why the REDSKINS? Easy I was born and raised in the WASHINGTON DC area, they are my Homie Team. Why The RAMS? Well it maybe because I was born under the astrological sign of the ram. Anyway that is my story and I'm sticking with it. So Thus is why I am a RAMSKINS Fan.

I've been collecting cards for most of my life, During my 20s-30s it was mostly off and on, so I have some gaps during the 80s-90s overproduced years. I think that was what turned me away from the hobby for a little while. Over the years my trading tastes have changed, I used to do the typical try to get the whole set, but with full sets being 100s of cards, plus a 100 or so inserts, you need to have access to more money than I have. My Signature has my want lists (I'm not sure how current they are, I need to update them I think) and main areas of interest.

My main interests (in case you want to trade, sell or give me something) are:

Current and Vintage (especially 60s & 70s), heck almost all years.

NFL: Rams (L.A. & St. Louis), Redskins, HOFers (Mostly 1970s and back)

MLB: Nationals (Thus Expos, heck I was into them in the early 70s because of the Red/White/Blue Logo), Senators, Orioles, some Mets and Rockies, - Vintage Teams: Senators, Pilots, 45's

NHL: Capitals mostly with some HOFers.

NBA: Not much into it but Bullets/Wizards is about it. If I can score some good MJ in Wizards or vintage Bullets Unis then great.

I DON'T collect Letterman cards, and I'm going to phase out my GU eventually, it's mostly the concept of the things. That doesn't mean I won't admire the things. I collect Rookie cars, but I try to stay away from Sage and the College Only Products. I have some college cards, some of which I will keep of players I like, but I'm not going out of my way for them.

Anyway one of my absolute fave cards I've had since way back when. I think it must have originally belonged to one of my Brothers when we were kids. It is one of my faves because it is my Birth year 1965:

1965 Topps Ernie Banks

Another fave is:

1974 Topps Washington National League Team Card: user posted image

Around 1973-1974 there were rumors the San Diego Padres were going to move to Washington DC to fill the gap that the Senators who skipped off to Texas to become the Rangers had left behind. Well we all know it took 33some years for Baseball to return to DC. So Topps produced about 15 cards marked with Washington NAT'L League using the Padres colors and regular photos. The only difference in the cards are the Team name, the card numbers on the backs are the same as the regular issue. The full set of both "Teams" is difficult to do, but not impossible. Somewhere I've got some dupes of a few of them since I had tried to build the team sets one-by-one but then when I reconnected with my local card shop one of the owners built a set for me. Next stop is to finally get the entire 1974 Topps Baseball set together. I used to be into the 1975 set back in the day, but now I'm not.

NOTE: This first post is subject to updates. I hope you enjoy viewing this thread and occasionally track it.

Ah Inserts. Some of my fave inserts are the Vintage inserts from the 1960s - 1970s. The Topps coins, the mini posters, the 4in1 mini booklets, the card games.

1968 TOPPS BASEBALL GAME INSERTS

In 1968 Topps put out a card game as inserts to the regular set. Each card has a star player, many of whom are now Hall Of Famers on the front with the result of an at bat.

NOTE: I may edit this post later to add some more Baseball here, I thought I had a scan of my Frank Robinson Game insert card, I guess I haven't yet.

NOW ONTO FOOTBALL:

As long as I can remember I've been a fan of both the Rams (I guess because I was born under the sign of Aries) and the Redskins (My Homie team).

1971 TOPPS FOOTBALL GAME INSERTS

One of my fave Insert sets is the 1971 Topps Football Card Game Inserts with the Mini Posters, the backs of which have the field for playing the game. Similar in theory to the 1968 Topps Baseball Card Game Inserts each card in this set has the end result of a play. I never played either game because I never had enough of either type of card, in fact I don't think I had more than one or two of those cards when I was little. I don't know what happened to them if I did. I am trying to build both sets, and also the Football Mini Poster Set.

Thanks Guys,

Road Runner,
I will certainly try to keep them coming. That was partly why I started this thread, that and to get some more exposure for my PC. I'll keep a lookout for #d 264s, but I really haven't been thinking about that lately.

IronMonkey
Thanks. I'm trying to concentrate on finishing out these sets, the mini-posters maybe difficult. The Namath Card I think I got from Ebay. I missed out on a Roman Gabriel card just a few days ago, I was watching it and let it go because my Paypal was getting low, even though the opening bid was only $0.99 D'OH!

A few years ago I scrounged up the remaining 1 or 2, and about two years ago got about 1/2 dozen from Ebay. So of those I might have a dozen.

Man it seems that the insert stuff was more fun back in the days before the Hobby reached maturity in the late 1970s.

One of my fave all-time REDSKINS quarterbacks is good old NUMBER 9
SONNY JURGENSEN

Sonny started his NFL career on the EAGLES and was traded to the REDSKINS for Norm Snead and Claude Crabb in 1964.

When I was a kid I had a very nice #9 Jersey. It was comfortable and I wore it a lot, over the years I had to save it from going into the goodwill pile or the pile of old shirts to be used for rags. Sometime during the '80s (late 80s I think) I lost track of it. Perhaps my mother finally gave it away then. Well at least I have memories of it, and a picture or two with me in it.

Now for the other end of my fave all-time quarterbacks:
ROMAN GABRIEL - #18 RAMS
(then later EAGLES)

Here is an interesting bit of Trivia for Mr. GABRIEL. He appeared in an episode of Gilligan's Island as a Headhunter (Episode 10 of Season 3 Topsy-Turvy 1966 - Thank you imdb.com for specifics). I don't think he had any lines, unless they were ughs and grunts.

Interesting personal story about that card. For the longest time I thought that it was a strange picture, because he was getting Gatorade thrown on him, well that was because the card I had has some sort of stain or something on it. I wasn't aware that was anything wrong with it until many years later when I found the card on Ebay.

HOKEY Smokes it's been ages since I've added stuff here. Part of that was for the longest time after my move (a year ago at the beginning of Aug) I cluttered up the table I have my laptop on so much I didn't have room for my scanner. I kept procrastinating. I finally hooked it back-up a week or so ago.

I don't know where to begin...

At first I was trying to keep this thread organized. Hmmm I'm not sure how much more I can keep it that way.

Well my signature has one of my more recent fave cards the dual auto of Frank Howard and Nick Johnson Here it is for when I end up changing my sig pic again:

A fun set that I had started back in the day as a Kid. I only had two for many years, then in the last couple started looking for the rest on Ebay. Well that goal was accomplished a few months back. I just hadn't scanned any of them till this weekend. anyway the set in question.

1975 Football Wonder Bread

This set is only 24 cards of All-Stars from that era. They came packaged at the end of the regular packages of Wonder Bread, so many separate cards from this set you may find will be yellowed from contact with the bread (even though I think they had been packaged in plastic cellophane wrapped packages).

Most of the cards in the set are fairly easy to find separately on Ebay and other places, however for some reason the two that eluded me for quite a long time were cards # 1 and # 15 with card #1 being the final straw to get. I didn't want to have to get a full set just to get one or two cards, but I came close a couple of times and I think I was outbid on a set once.

Here are the first two cards that I have had since they were first released. Note the "white" areas are yellowed. This is mostly due to the contact with the bread product, not necessarily natural aging from being about 35 years old.

It's a cool signature, but kind of a lousy photo to use for a card, but it beats no picture like some cards have done.

Shaughnessy was a coach for several Colleges and then the Rams in 1948-49. Check his Wikipedia page for all the details.

Soon it will be Halloween, scary eh kids? With that note let us flip back 15 years with Coca-Cola and The NFL...

Coca-Cola, and the NFL Player's Association using Pro-Line Classics cards. Produced this unique set of 30 cards:

Monsters of the Gridiron in 1994.

user posted image


Each NFL team is represented by one of its big named Starter Stars, and each player is dressed up in some sort of Monster or Creature Costume and some sort of silly monster nickname. The two new expansion teams that would begin their histories with the NFL the following season in 1995; The Carolina Panthers and The Jacksonville Jaguars are represented by "Mascots" that didn't quite become the official logos. The backs of the cards say 1994 Edition which seems to indicate that there were plans to make the concept a regular annual series. That never happened.

The cards were included in the 12 can pack cases. If I recall correctly I think 2 cards may have been included or 1 card and a scratch off game card.

user posted image


15 years does effect ones memory so I really don't know unless there is some website out there on the internet that gives all the distribution details.

As you can see the entire set was also made available later in a hanging cardboard backed blister pack.

I've gotten in a few Ebay Auctions recently.

First from a brand new series of BASEBALL cards, with multiple sports in it because it is a retro tobacco era series. I got my first 2009 Upper Deck GOODWIN CHAMPIONS card. It's not a baseball one its a Hockey.

Now moving on to FOOTBALL.

First from The 1974 FLEER Hall of Fame (The Immortal Roll) series. Now these cards are a little bit thinner (skinner width-wise not paper stock wise) than the standard, but are just a tadd taller. The 1974 cards are very similar and often mistaken for the 1975 cards. The main difference is the 1974 cards are not numbered the '75 are. I think the 1975 set is a larger set.

It's been a little while. I've been slow in scanning some stuff, slow in organizing. wait in some areas I haven't been organizing. Sigh. I also recently started a card blog at captkirk42.blogspot.com

OK here are some stickers that I got recently from Ebay. Before America got attacked in 2001 there was an attempt to have a rival football league to the NFL by the owners of the WWF Wrestling League. It failed Miserably, but was immortalized in the opening scenes of the Arnold Schwarzenegger movie The 6th Day (with one "expansion team" that never was) they had some cool helmet-cam footage though. Anway Oh it was the XFL I was talking about.

So WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE?

Earlier in the week I got a Hockey card from Ebay which was the O-Pee-Chee version of a Topps card I have. Collectors that specialize in Hockey know very well that the Canadian printed O-Pee-Chee cards have always paralleled the Topps cards from that year. Now a days it is easy to tell the difference because of the branding on the front, but for many years the only way to tell was information on the back. If there was French writing anywhere on the back it was the OPC version. Sometimes only the copyright line let you know if your card was from Topps or from OPC. Now if your card was off center like my Topps card is on the back (without the copyright line) then you would have ether have other cards from that same set, or do some research to find out the differences. Usually there is a card stock difference as well.

Any way....

Which one is Which?
user posted imageuser posted image


The first one on top the one that is slightly darker (at least my copies) is the OPC the second one Topps. From that front you can't tell which is which. Now looking at the back you can tell right away.

I hate the fine print on these modern cards. I also hate all the embossing and shiny printing that may look pretty but you can't read for carp (to put it nicely). That is one of the reasons I hate the chrome stuff, you can't read anything because it's all reflecting and refracting in the light.

And Now for Some Vintage Non-Sport From 1953 Topps.

World On Wheels
1953 TOPPS


This Non-Sport series is made up of classic cars, sport cars, military vehicles and futuristic looking cars. The designs remind me of the pictures on the boxes of old model car kits.

I got 4 of these from Ebay a little while back. Took me a while to remember to scan them and then come up with something to say about them.

My favorite of the four is the first one card #38 Kenz Twin Ford.

It reminds me of the cars the bad guys like Snake would drive in the Speed Racer Cartoons.

The basic low-down on this set is Topps released series one cards 1 - 160 in 1953 they have info about the subject car in the picture on the back. There is another little trivia box on the back that talks about something else entirely.

Series two contains cards 161 - 180 and were released in 1954 I don't have any of those yet. Cards 161-170 have the same Red Backs like series one and cards 171-180 are the Blue Backs. At least that is what my research on these has shown me so far. I'll know for sure if I ever get the rest of the series.

I say more about this set on my Trading Cards Blog

GLADIATORS AUSTRALIAN STYLE

From Ebay I got 4 promo cards from the Australian "Gladiators" TV show. I'm not sure of the number of cards in the set but it's the Australian version of the show which those of us in the USA would know as "American Gladiators"

I give a brief explanation on my Cards Blog American Gladiators UMM Australian Post. The most attractive one is this first one:
