Some other stuff that turned up when I sandblasted my desk...


This might be a '52 Wheaties Roy Campanella card in very good shape. Or, it might be a fake. Found about about the counterfeits after the fact, but thankfully, it didn't cost much. Now, it looks a little different than the card pictured in the article I just linked to, in terms of card stock and otherwise. Thing is, a commenter mentioned that, to check on the the card's authenticity, smelling it is actually a good idea, and let me tell you, this card smells like wet dog from 1952. So, thoughts? Any experts in the audience on the fake/real Wheaties cards? Did the counterfeiters invest in wet dog from 1952 perfume or something? Definitely curious...


This beautiful bastard of a '52, on the other hand, is as real as they come! Cal Abrams here waltzed into my local right before Christmas, and somehow, it didn't make it onto the site until now! Shame on me!


I got two of these ancient TCMA Black Sox cards in a deal with a friend of mine offline.


Check out how primitive the backs are...


Weird that this stuff was so thrown together when the SSPC set looked so good. Of course, these had stats on them, but that's another story.


Part of what makes this year's Elite Extra Edition and the crop of prospects featured in it so awesome: the names. Rookie Davis! Kolten Wong! And, ladies and gentlemen...


...Miles Head.


Speaking of guys who got miles of head, anyone need one of these badass Steve Garvey McGregor tags? It turns out that I actually have a spare one of these! Owl, we've got something brewing already, so you get first crack, but otherwise, I know there are some Dodger fans in the audience who'd love to get their McGregors on!
