Technically only one of these lots is a "February" pickup, but the new month has to start sometime, right?


Picked these up at a community yard sale for a dollar. The only other non-sports item I found at the entire venue (about 100 tables) was the front panel of a Beatles wrapper that had been cut out, pasted into a scrapbook, cut out of the scrapbook and wrapped in Scotch tape. I offered the guy a dollar for it; he informed me that it was "very rare" because it was "the only time all four Beatles ever appeared on a gum wrapper, and they only did one printing." He said he paid $50 for it ten years ago and wouldn't part with it for less than $30. I wished him the best of luck.


I'm glad I finally have a couple of these for my type collection, but man, are they horrible! The "scenes" have almost no movement whatsoever. Seriously, in the "Monkee Salute" booklet, only one of the three Monkees pictured is actually moving at all, and even that's just incidental.


A large lot of foreign issues from the '70s from the most recent BCB Auction. I wanted it mostly for the Tarzan and horror album stickers, but the other stickers and "cards" (paper cards, actually) are kind of interesting, too.


Wrappers from the lots above, along with a few extras, also from the BCB Auction.


Some tangentially related non-sports gumball machine issues.








The "Horrors of War" cards above are from the Canadian issue.


Searched a long time for one of these.


The back of the "Minute Men" coupon.


And finally, a nice lot of Kerr's Butter Scotch Airplanes.

Got a nice grouping from one of my favorite strip card sets, Commando Rangers. I'd love to someday complete this and its sister set Allies in Action.



Here's a card from a Canadian Broncho Bill set that I know nothing about. Any information would be greatly appreciated. -Jack J.

Great stuff Jack.........I finished Commando Ranger but find the evil stepsister set of Allies in Action to be particularly troublesome. Down to about 12-15 cards but geez.....they just don't come up often and there are more people (at least ME, YOU, ALAN MOON, EVIL MARTY) who are gobbling them up.........

Well, since I outed the Sterling lots, guess I should fess up on what I won...........

Three Bread lots...........
May have some dupes from the first two after I get them in if anyone wants to trade............








Would also be interested in any of the duplicate Weber Bread flags if anyone wants to trade......

And a couple of ebays.........

Nice N567 Newsboy Tall Ship........


Group of 50 or so Wannamaker flags......Horizontal flags and vertical crests......
Some Horizontal dupes available if interested........

A Billy the Kid produced by Wendy's back in the early 70's (at least that's what the ebay listing said). It's a lenticular card, so that's why it looks funny on a scan photo. Tilt it and a Billy the Kid portrait pops up.

Ron, I love your enthusiasm for the bird cards. But please don't tell me you purchased the 31 graded N4s for $1,950. All this seller's stuff is priced at 3X to over 10X of true value, that's why they have been listed for years and almost never sell. Same cards in that condition can be purchased for less than $600 and then can be graded for another $200. More fun that way too!

Wow. The postman brought five(!) different packages for me today. One was rather boring but cheap, but here are a couple of items selected from the other four.
