I have a few more things coming in, but I'll start the month off. I'm not sure where all these R141s are coming from, but I'm very happy to have my set complete. I scanned against a black background in case Dan wanted to replace the gallery image for the Welsh Guard.



Not a bad start to the month at all since I never really envisioned that I'd ever complete this set a year or two ago.
Mostly selling right now but some good pickups from Mid-January on.......glad to see a lot of things I'm selling wind up on this thread with people in this group! And incredible Hanlan N60 Rhett.....I have a good group of N60's minus the two next to Hanlan now.............have seen very few men on any of the N60's. Have a Henry Ward Beecher one..............

Last N21-1 that I needed to complete the set of 80+. Thanks to Terry Knouse and Bob Forbes who got me the #3 and #2 I needed to finish.


Hodge podge singles for sets and collections
Three S25's that have eluded me. Up to about 130 different. Based on the $700+ that the recent Amity silk sold for, I will likely not ever have a complete set.


One of (7) INCREDIBLE locomotive advertising cabinet photos I picked up in an impulse batch of snipe bidding. Really cool with specifications on the back preprinted.


Complete set of Stollwerck Cocoa paper dolls in pretty nice shape


Couple lots of T400-up cards for a rebuilding of that collection.....






couple N489's to get me pretty close to a mixed-brand complete set of them......


My favorite p/u of the month......my first N224 Vatican card. Spot of paper loss on the center but beggars can't be choosers.........and my 588th of the 622 card set. 2017 stretch goal to take that to 600.......


Nice H652 Scott's Dollars of the World Trade card.......my 3rd of the 16 card set. Same company as the Scott's stamps of today...........


Nice El Capitan Gum pinback of a hunting dog. Trying to corner the nonsports Cameo Pepsin / El Capitan Gum PE4 market.........

I just returned from a 35+ day adventure out in California (babysitting grandkids LOL). I visited this antique shop a couple of times, and was anxious to buy SOMETHING as I was in there a couple hours. I found what I think is a small movie poster (10 3/4" X 7") that reminded me of those 1950 Topps "Bring Em Back Alive" cards. A quick eBay search revealed a few of these priced between $15 and $150. This was priced at $5 so I bought it.

Nice to see someone else on the pinbacks other than me! And fantastic group of those Kellogg Pep.....they are minty fresh. Love the variety of the stuff you collect. You, Greg G and Todd are all wide open! Love it. Sounds like you put some mileage on the car there..........look forward to retirement and doing stuff like that. With a 7 and 11 year old, I may go directly from retirement to a nursing home though.............

Ken's president cards are from a boxed set put out by the Vermont Marble Company. They are from the marble plaques in the presidential gallery that are on display at Vermont Marble Co.If you stopped in to view their marble exhibits the cards were available for sale in the gift shop. My set ends with LBJ.
