1972 Topps Venezuelan Stamp #16 Steve Garvey



This item has been sitting king atop my wantlist for as long as I've had a wantlist. Finally I was able to land one and I almost feel like I am done! There were the 5 to get, now there are 4. I actually never expected to get any of the 5...as each item has shown up either only once (and I lost out) or never.

I will forge forward, but I almost feel lost now!:D

Topps Vault has a 1/1 Garvey listed right now...don't know if you have seen it or not.

Congrats on the score!

Congrats on your newest addition Very Great Job well done

Tom,

If you found any more 72 Stamps, I'd suggest picking them up regardless. I like DUPES too! ;)

The new top 5...hmmm...Let's see.

1980 Long Beach Telegram w/ Carew
1980 Topps Test Coin
1986 Wallich Enterprises Padres Postcards Checklist
1987 Doud Allred/Inside Baseball w/ Jerry Coleman
2002 Donruss Team Heroes Beckett Sample (Gold)

Other than a chance encounter w/ a Gold sample Beckett card, finding the rest will probably be a miracle! However, except for the 87 Allred card and the sample card, I have actually seen proof of the other three's existance either in a collection or for sale (once). Anything is possible!

Oh, there are more than 5 of course, but those 5 were like the cream of the crop. I could list every 1/1 and such, but what's the point there? I need to verify, but I think I now officially have all of Garvey's issues when he was an active player (1971-1988), at least all those listed on Beckett online + many, many more unlisted.

Nice find. I am still trying to find my #1. 1994 Stadium Club Draft Picks Members Only Nomar. I have never seen one. Not even a complete set I could buy.
