  • July 24, 2012
  • Leighton Sheldon

A blog post a day until the 2012 National in Baltimore!  The Yankees got Ichiro! I love the trade, and think Ichiro will thrive in NY because he doesn't have to be the entire team. Exciting news for the Pinstripes (even though they are losing right now), but its 11:30 at night and I still have a ton of work to do. At least I have Seinfeld & Sportscenter on in the background. Today was a very long day at the office, as were was open from 8am until 8pm. Some of the staff was busy processing the nearly $40,000 worth

1948 Leaf #3 Babe Ruth Yankees SGC 60Contrary to what some believe, Leaf didn’t put Babe Ruth into its 1948 set as a ‘tribute’ after the Bambino’s death.  Ruth died in August of 1948 and the Leaf Candy Company’s cards had already been on the market for awhile.  It’s likely true, however, that his failing health may have had something to do with his inclusion in the set, some 13 years after he played in his last game. The ’48 Leaf Babe Ruth is no less popular with collectors of vintage

1929 R316 Kashin Publications Babe Ruth Yankees PSA 3The bulk of Babe Ruth’s amazing career took place from the late 1910s through the 1920s, but not that many Ruth cards were issued during this period.  There were the strip cards, American Caramel cards, several different that were issued with ice cream, Exhibits and a few others.  In the 1930s, Goudey Gum created color cards of the Babe and those are the cards you most often see or hear about. One of the more attractive, and often reasonably priced Babe Ruth cards

1895 N300 Mayo's Cut Plug Kid Nichols HOF Boston SGC 30There are vintage baseball cards and then there are antiques.  The 1895 N300 Mayo’s Cut Plug set definitely falls into the latter category.  These 117-year-old trading cards pre-date the origin of baseball’s World Series.  The players featured in the set include baseball’s earliest superstars.  They’re pioneers, really, and to see them pictured on those early trading cards is to harken back to a hardscrabble game just beginning to make its national imprint. A couple of weeks ago, we had six cards
