The Long Island Let's Play Ball Collection

  • Leighton Sheldon

Recently, we had an inquiry through our website from a woman in New York. She had inherited a sports card collection that had been in her family for decades. She contacted us about a “binder full of Play Ball cards”, which she hoping to get an appraisal on, and possibly sell outright. She was able to send us an image of the first binder page, which just so happened to be the first nine cards in the set, that included the coveted #1 Joe DiMaggio card! At this point, we knew she had a valuable collection and we wanted to

The baseball and football cards found in this recently acquired collection elicits the loudest of cheers from the collector in me. There just aren't enough adjectives to do them justice - they are that good! “Gorgeous," “beautiful,” and “incredible” will have to suffice for now in describing the plethora of vintage Bowman, Topps and Fleer sets hailing from the Tar Heel state. One of our card specialists, Scott Alpaugh, returned to the office this week with a high quality abundance of cards from a collection amassed by a retiree, who relocated to the Appalachian region from California. This collector, assembling

Everyone seems to have heard a story about how their parents or siblings threw out their childhood baseball card collection.  While these stories are commonplace, such losses helped add to the increased scarcity of vintage baseball cards in the modern day. Recently, Just Collect met with an individual that had a collection that most in the family thought had met the same unfortunate fate.  The gentleman that contacted Just Collect mentioned that this collection had been his father’s and was collected during his childhood in 1941.  At some point, the collection vanished and the thoughts turned to whether it had

1909 E90-1 American Caramel Cy YoungIt was another great find for the vintage card experts at Just Collect.  After several weeks of telephone discussions with the seller, Just Collect flew to Florida and within a few short days, had evaluated, negotiated and purchased the entire collection from a gentleman who called himself a "high-end, exotic antique baseball card and memorabilia collector." The collection spans across many decades; from early tobacco cards of Cap Anson and Christy Mathewson to cabinets cards of Cy Young, and even early and rookie

1951 Bowman #165 Ted Williams Boston Red Sox PSA 6

1951 Bowman #165 Ted Williams Boston Red Sox PSA 6 "Go BIG!" is the line to keep in mind when considering this striking specimen bearing the Splinter's likeness, because as any fan on the '50 and '51 Bowman sets knows, the Hall of Famer's card front in both series is exactly the same. So why sink your dollars into the small guy when you can get a bigger, beefier portrait of Teddy flashing that classic swingers pose here. Size aside,
