Once again, work travel blocked me from attending Cleve's auction this past Tuesday. Once again, I placed several write in bids. Unlike the last auction, I managed to win a few things this time. One of wins was something I was shocked to get with a low write in bid considering it's age, uniqueness and what I presume to be scarcity.
Here are the spoils:
SCG. The slabs from SCG are very nice, and makes this ho hum card look and feel more expensive. Plus the grade is a 96 which is near perfect.
Finally, I previously had posted about a 1950 Callahan I bought online. Last week at Cleve's one of the auction items was an original box that had contained a complete set. I thought it was very interesting, and with my recent discovery of the Callahan cards, I wanted this empty box if I could get it cheap. I put in a bid for $4 and that was all it took:
Bob Gibson Topps Supers: $3 B+: It has a crease in the bottom, but it's still a nifty card of a HOF pitcher.
SCG 1978 Dave Concepcion $2 B+: A nice card of a multiple All Star that I picked up with couch change.
1950 Callahan Box $4 A+: A great, historical oddball item that I may not see available again. Big win for me!
