Before I left on my recent trip to Thailand I worked a deal with an older gentleman who was selling his entire collection of cards. I had previously picked up 60 or so Gehrig cards since I could not afford all of them at once. Well, I finished up our deal on the first and he sent the remaining 123 cards!!!:D !!!:D They are loaded in my bucket: http://s215.photobucket.com/albums/cc215/Gehrig041927/PC/Lou Gehrig/.

Most of these are the low numbered items I could not find on the secondary market. Well over $1200 BV for this lot and I got it for a great price. A find like this has put my collection at over 760 different Gehrig cards. Just had to share.

Plus there are a few Topps Sterling cards I got on eBay for good measure:)

Take care,
Dewayne

that is an impressive group Dewayne. Congrats on finding it. I used to have that Cadaco Disc, I forgot all about that one. Those were neat oddball. I wonder if that makes you the worlds biggest Gehrig collector? pat

This unknown is from the back page of a 1971 Dell Stamp Book, at least that looks exactly like the Dodgers on the back page of mine (I don't have a Yankee stamp book to check).

This one is the Danbury Mint issue

This one looks like a Golden Legends card I have of Gil Hodges, but can't know for sure unless I saw the back

Guys,

Thanks for the look and card finding help ;) Doubt I have the biggest Gehrig collection but I am quite proud of it. Breaking 1000 will be a huge undertaking given I only have 750 in ten years of collecting. of course early on I was so poor I could not pay attention and missed out on all of the new breaks. It has only been the last three years or so I could afford to really put some effort into it.
