Those are sweet!

My (busy) weekend pickups...

One of the rarest boxes of the 80's - a non-blacklined "Baby" box (99.9% are blacklined)...






I think these are studio promo photo's (thin blank backed paper but normal card size)...


Some fun trade cards and trade card era booklets...


This one was in great shape...


Star Wars Sugar-free hoard...






I love these ads! They have great graphics and are usually dated so you know when the items were issued...








Much tougher Kookie Plaks...






Some R94-1(including a Babe Come Home which I didn't even see until I got home)...


Not mint but mostly series of 312 white background...




The little heads are scraps but they have neat gold accents that are probably real gold...


Complete set of D12's with album...


I know they are silks, but these are some of the nicest shape ones I have seen...




Mostly tobacco. The trade card is by Kimball and I hadn't seen it before...


Here you go Freddie and the Dreamers fans - the ultimate collection...

Wow! Those National Chicle Novelties and that Freddie and the Dreamers ultimate lot are both awesome... for entirely different reasons!

Todd, interested in trading/selling that Amherst? I think it's a numbered card, right? Here's my latest three which almost completes my Master Set.

One of the members of my baseball card trading club sent me this 1962 Topps Mars Attacks card that arrived today. It was the last card I needed to complete my set!

Just a couple of days in and May is looking like a good month. Great Novelty cards. Todd, love the map silks and that's an odd orange color on the pennant printing.

Here are some odds and ends including some from several bread card sets.



Thanks to Tom for this, my first Bond Bread blotter.



And last, a Wilbur-Suchard Mickey Mouse candy bar wrapper. - Jack J.

Hasn't anyone gotten anything in the last week?

A couple more Lefferts candy box train cars. Inside one of the boxes was a half ticket from Erie, PA. Does anyone know where this might have come from and when?



Here's the ticket. When could you get admission to anywhere for 20 cents. Thanks, Tom for a second blotter.



The Grand Canyon adds to my set, and the other three were upgrades. This is a beautiful set.



Last, a beautiful example of one of my favorite wrappers, World In Arms. - Jack J.

Man... u guys are unbelievable! awesome stuff as usual!

My Mecca wall hanger came in today, holy S%*T its huge! will have a hard time hiding this from the wife! I may have to build an extension on the house to display it...





I bought this JP Coates off ebay, i was certain the horse was "Uhlan" (would be a nice companion piece to the Uhlan card in my T227 set....).

Came in and the horse is "Fantasy." I went back and looked a the listing and sure enough it said fantasy when I purchased it. I guess I was day dreaming or fantasizing about another great pickup?

Oh well it is a great piece... think I'll keep it. says famous horses second series on the back so I guess there is likely a set...




TTYL!
