Unfortunately, I believe the Sequoia you drive thru is no longer standing.

Some very large groups being picked up this month; quite a variety of stuff! Love seeing these in the pickup threads as I would otherwise not ever see this kind of variety of cards. Keep 'em coming!

Here's a group of ten Leader Discs that I was elated to pick up. I needed seven of the ten. Does anyone else collect these? I'd love to find a trading partner.



Three more of the very challenging R170 Warriors of the World; a couple of Believe it or Nots in good condition; the R98 completes my set; I'm only working on a basic set of Cops and Robbers but it has been slow going for me; the R75 is heavily trimmed, but it was a color scheme that I didn't have.



This R75 is in much better condition and brings me to within one to completing a base set of forty-eight; the American Beauty is in great shape; slowly ticking off War News Pictures (down to needing thirteen minus dirty dozen needs); five battleships, a really nice HOW upgrade, and a small group of The Second World War.



Three of the tough 97-120 Dick Tracys; down to needing eleven X-Ray savages after these two; four really nice Don't Let it Happen over Here; two R3 cards including an Army higher series and the two Mother's Cookies Sports Cars bring me to within two to completing what will be my first D set.



I didn't have an example of the R3 Marine box coupon so happy to get this one; always on the lookout for Sky Birds EX-ish cards but have missed out on several recently, however I did nab this one; the group of twenty VG World War Gum are a nice bump on my set in progress.



Typical foxing on the Soldier Boys, but otherwise nice; four more World War Gum but from the latter half of the set.

Chicle Novelty is UNDER Rated..Nice grab!

Freddie and the dreamers MASTER Collection per TR..pretty cool. Don't recall seeing that sell card with puzzle graphic. Original?

JJ finally got that World wrapper? neat.

Larry, always nice to get that LAST card! congrats

GG, those Japanese cards : they are on thinner stock, right?

Daniel is on quite a roll.

Cliff ...just turn mecca upside down , put a few checkers on it. The wife will never know (grin)

Was quite surprised to check in here and see so much this early in MAY! ( non sporters on the march!)

If there was a heaven for wrapper collectors, these three wrappers would be good candidates for over the gate. I am sure that all collectors of Non-sports wrappers are aware, a vast collection of vintage wrappers, mostly from the 50's through the 70's has recently come up for auction on Ebay. These are from that collection. From what I've seen, most appear to be opened from new-old stock as they are bright, shiny and folded in their original form. If anyone knows anything about this collection, or the collector, I'd love to hear the story. - Jack J.

This is the rarer one cent R701-15 Bowman Radio and TV Stars wrapper. Where the five cent has blue printing, this has green and this one says "one cent" and the other has no price. Also, one says "card" the other says "cards".



For comparison


A beautiful 1954 R701-10 Power For Peace wrapper.



And, (sigh), last but not least, maybe one of the finest wrappers associated with one of the finest sets ever to hit the Non-sports world, the 1962 R714-30 Mars Attacks wrapper. If I sound in awe, it's because I am. I never thought I'd be so honored as to add one of these to my collection. It is the new center piece.

I told him the guy that got the Mars Attacks wrapper the second time around was a TRUE wrapper guy. REALLY glad it was you Jack. Hopefully, once the nonsports wrappers have concluded, he'll come on and talk about his father-in-law's collection. I know he only sold so far what he said were duplicates. Good luck to those bidding and those that have won! I hope to win a few of the sports wrappers that have begun showing up.

Great stuff, everyone. Here are my two:




Howe invented the sewing machine. 50 years ago, almost every home in America had a sewing machine thanks to him.
Now...I don't know anyone who owns one!

Frank, you're about 100 years off on "his" invention of the sewing machine. And I still have my mothers old pump pedal Singer. Let me know if your skirt needs repairs.

Jack,
Those are some sweet wrappers! I have been watching those auctions but have not been able to win a thing. Many wrappers have gone for astronomical prices or you win them (HA!).

Frank,
My mom actually has a sewing machine and sews quite a bit. (of course you don't know her)

Now, it's time to board the "Weekend Pick-up Time Machine", so buckle up and enjoy the ride!!!!!

Before we leave we'll need to peruse some documentation...



Hey Les!!! What is the story on these? I was not aware of them. Did you only do the 2 issues?



First stop (a mere 20+ years ago) - the 1990's...





Next we'll drop back another 10 years - to the 1980's...


(it seems like the 80's loved the 30's for some reason)



Now on to those crazy 1970's...





Now let's go to one of my favorite decades - the 1960's...





Now on to Bill B's favorite decade - the 1950's...





Last stop, the golden age of bubble gum cards - the 1930's/40's...























Sadly, it is time to return to the present!
