The winner Friday night was: GTT.
Now let us start off with the little stuff.
I'm suspect these are from the 1972 the reprint set. Not sure and don't remember, but when I bought them they were supposed to be from the 1956 Topps US President's set (36 card set). I felt and posted back then that the condition was just too nice, that doesn't mean that they are necessarily the reprints but I'm just saying.
These bad to the bone Bowmans' are from the 1952 set.
Now that some of the little stuff is out of the way.
I'll use this episode for the usual Masonic Monday.
I know that some of the above (and below) cards have been shown this week and I can not be positive that they are duplicates. I may have had them handy when I switched laptops and may have just scanned them to the new (current) laptop. One day in the neat future when time permits I will know and if they are in fact doubles I know someone had interest in the Reagan above.
This wrapper is from the 1972 Topps reprint set for certain.
These coin sets are courtesy of Uncle Fred.
Above are the Presidential covers and other than any I've already used will at some point this year pop up on the Masonic Monday theme with the article included.
The above three books/magazines are from my collection. I had picked these up a yard sale just around the corner of my house here. I believe all 3 are from 1964.
I said that this would be a blowout tonight. I hope I met that description.
Since I was a little kid, I've loved Presidential History, and I believe that I have that first set if cards in a bix somewhere.ReplyDelete
Love that President Ford card of him as an All-American at Michigan.
Good Job! 👍
Crazy amount of stuff. I wish I had some of that old stuff, guess I'll start hitting the garage sales more!ReplyDelete
Not really my area of interest, but some really nice historical items. Getting ready for a possible snowstorm lasting three days. Maybe the forecasts will be wrong. One can only hope.ReplyDelete
Happy Presidents' Day! It's a holiday for many of the provinces up here as well. The holiday depends on which province!ReplyDelete
My faves today are the 1956 Topps. Least favourite? The politicaltradingcards.com ones
Regarding the 56 vs 72 Presidents set. I have the 1956 Hoover (only President I PC) and it's the same 2.5x3.75 size as vintage Bowman plus the copyright slug on the back is in a different spot than yours. Also, you have an LBJ card in that set.ReplyDelete
Just checked you're right, they are definitely from the 1972 reprint set. The LBJ is a dead giveaway.Delete
I used to have a couple of those '56 U.S. Presidents cards. They arrived with the '56 baseball my dad's work friend gave us. My brothers and I didn't care about non-baseball, so those presidents cards disappeared quickly, no idea what happened to them.ReplyDelete
That's some head of helmet hair on young Gerald Ford.ReplyDelete
Didn't know they made Trump cards. Got the recent prize PWEs...thank you for the vintage Santo and Williams!!!ReplyDelete
Love the Reagans! Especially that first pitch card.ReplyDelete
P.S. The Fake News card cracked me up.
I'm impressed with your extensive President collection, and equally impressed that you're able to put partisanship aside and add all 46 (plus some VPs) to your collection.ReplyDelete
Wouldn't be a Presidential Collection if I used bias. I really try to only be biased in the important things, lol. (things that directly affect me).Delete
