I'll do three more Largent RC's then move to something else.

Two of these were raw eBay finds, tough to find any raw w/o centering and corner issues. And one I won in an eBay auction.





Less than 1% of my entire collection is football...but when I started getting serious about my collecting, the Largent Rookie was a must have(loved that card as a 7 year old kid)! I don't have it scanned at the moment, but I will dig it out and post it when I do. Yours motivated me!

Fresh maid in today, added this with the $15 off $75+ eBay deal . Really happy to add this to the vintage collection. Joe Morgan RC!!

I have been going through and doing an inventory of my cards, and I could get rid of everything but my vintage PC. I just love hunting these cards down.



And the twin I just added.

Thought I would post a couple of cards tonight, there was a post in the FB section on holes in your collection and my #1 was a 1977 Topps Mexican Steve Largent PSA 8 RC. So I thought for tonight I'd post a couple of Topps Mexican cards I hope to add more of these to the vintage PC in the future. First up a Jim Zorn RC this card looks great, and being a huge Seahawks fan I had to have it. Scan.



Next up Mean Joe Greene awesome card, with the classic Topps FB close up head shots. I really like these, I love to see the expression on the players faces. Scan up.

Thanks, I think that Zorn is has a little to much stuck to the bottom corner or else it's a 8 to me.

I have two awesome pickups I'm waiting on now, so I'm getting antsy. I'll have to just post a recent pick up and a card that I have had for a few years now.

I thought I would add my second favorite BSK card after my Mikan RC. This card I had posted in another post so I though I would add it to my vintage thread. This card is so sharp, scan.



This Larry Costello RC is also super sharp, it has some tilt but looks like a PSA 8 from the front. The only thing holding this back is a surface wrinkle on back.

Awesome Hank Aaron pickup today, this and his 54, 57 Topps are my three favorite basic cards he has. I will be going after the other two, but this was first on my list and has a great design all around. This is the exact top to bottom centering I was looking for. I know it's considered OC, but these 55 Bowman just look right with just a tiny bit of boarder on the bottom. Scan up!

Well, it finally made it home the second vintage card I was waiting on. I had bought this while the seller was on vacation, but it's here now. 1957 Topps Bob Cousy RC! This card is really crisp in hand it does have a little more snow on front than I could see in the pic by the seller, still looks great though and I'm happy to add it to the vintage PC!



Next to my PSA 3

Thanks, I really enjoy tracking down the vintage. I just need to get serious about how I want to display my cards, hard to enjoy them locked away lol.
