I'll start this off with some 61's that came for the set I'm building:

Those are some real nice looking 61s. Real clean, nice corners and for the most part real nice centering. Where did you pick them up?

Thanks Doug. I'm picking them up on eBay. I'm trying to buy several at a time to keep s/h down. The real challenge is going to be the All Star cards, they're high numbers and pricy.

Probably a good set to pick up nice looking raw individuals on eBay, as it does not seem to be a real popular set. GREAT for a guy like you. Good luck and keep up the good work.

Wow, those are beautiful! Nice centering, sharp corners, just overall nice looking cards. You got a great eye.

Nothing new for me to report as far as sports go. I did pick up an original movie poster I've been wanting, but my buying otherwise has slowed. I'm more in the sell mode than the buy mode right now.

I got my eye on a 1962 Topps cello pack, I'm still debating on if I should grab it or wait to see what else will show up.

Would you rip the 62 cello pack?

No, I'm not that daring! I wanted to take my collecting a different direction, so I decided on collecting packs.

Those are sweet.Not long ago I sold my 61 Set and did OK.The HI#S are tough however they can be found.If you are looking for quality raw cards try Mike Wheat Cards I have never been dissapointed with his grading standards.

Dam, that PSA 9 is smoking! I don't know how they found a flaw in that beauty, what a stunning card!

Are you buying up all the Jordan RC's you can? That 4 looks pretty dam good too.

It's a new twist on collecting for me. I had never really thought about packs until recently. I was kinda getting bored with just collecting cards and wanted to expand a bit. I have a nice collection of game used items, but I have items of most of the players I wanted.

I wanted to be able to collect something I enjoyed (I think old packs are cool!), something I could display a decent amount of in a smaller area (my space is limited) and something that would hold it's value over time. And old packs fill all those requirements for me.

I got the idea from a couple of guys at the PSA board. Muggyman and Griffins (I think that is who has the collection of unopened packs). I liked the idea Muggy had with collecting with stars on top and I LOVE Griffins collection (the most AMAZING collection of unopened packs I have ever seen). They look cool, display in a small area and can be very valuable. And each year that goes by, they become more and more rare.

The great thing is I have ZERO desire to crack them. Not one fleeting thought.

And did I mention I think they are really cool? :D

I've collected some packs but normally I can't resist opening them.

Here's a couple more 61's that came today_

Where are you guys finding such raw Gem's!?

I can never find stuff even in the PSA 7 range in raw vintage at any of our local shows.

Then I see people pulling these off everywhere else, gets my blood pressure going.. =)

Dam, those are pack fresh!

I gotta ask, but you don't have to answer....what kinda prices are you paying for those? Any sort of premium attached for such nice cards?

You must be spending HOURS looking over Ebay, I don't see that many nice cards listed!

I'm trying to build the set as cheaply as I can. For the commons I normally pay 99 cents to maybe $2.50. What I do is first check shipping discounts for multiple cards, then I search the sellers other cards to see if he's got at least 2 cards I want up for sale. Then I'll pay a little more (that's where the $2.50 comes in) if I'm buying 3 or 4 cards and the additional shipping is only 25 cents or so.

I've found that free shipping usually means you'll get the cards in a PWE.

My overall goal is to build this set while finishing 56 Topps (maybe 100 cards to go), then finish 65 Topps (about halfway there). After that I'm going to build 1959, I like that set and have most of the stars in PSA 8 already. All the sets will be mostly raw, mush easier to enjoy and a lot more affordable.

Those are definitely some sharp cards, I like working on my raw vintage sets, but mine tend to look more like they've been through the washing machine multiple times. :lol:

Will the PSA 4 Jordan see an autograph pen in the not too distant future?
