A friend of mine was on his way back from a hunting trip and stopped in a NY airport. Even though he is a huge Red Sox fan he knew I would never shut up if he did not get me an auto of Yankees GM Brian Cashman. This was a day or two after Lee went to the Phillies too.

Next is not pictured but it is a Program from a charity Basketball game played by the 1989 Reds in Ohio. Program has some real young looking players O’neill, E. Davis, and more. Sabo looks like he is ten years old. Also inside was two loose autos of O’neill and Joe Oliver.

My 1st item from the Topps Vault, 1996 Topps Gallery Proof Cards of Paul O Neill

I am not sure what I have here if in fact it is anything at all. I stumbled on a web site selling older vintage stuff. He had some O’neill stuff too. It was described as a 1990 Donruss blue paper proof card and it came in the original envelope. To me it looks like someone made a blue copy of a Donruss card. The back is blank. The card is paper and not even cut very well and has wrinkles. I still had to own it even if I got scammed.

Grabbed this at a show today, A Spud Chandler autograph. Could not pass it up. After all most of his career he wore number 21 like another Yankee I like.

Also got this at a show today. I have an O’neill from 99 like it and thought these are cool. They have a Pettitte studio card right inside. I like the odd stuff

Kevin,

You are probably close enough to visit the place, but I googled the address, as the name didn't bring much. Looks like 116 Nassau St in NY was a photography studio for quite some time. I found a site highlighting a collection of photos by Morris Rosenfeld and his sons. Looks like he and his sons operated a studio for many years, and most recently under the name M. Rosenfeld and Sons in 1981, when it closed. The collection mentions photos stamped with that address, so I assume it was their studio for a while.

https://www.rosenfeldcollection.com...e&page_id=DB6DF305-65B8-D398-7846CA212AAEFFCF

I am guessing E. Strauss may have taken over from a previous tenant, possibly Rosenfeld himself and subsequently passed it along to newer tenants.

Looks like this is the firm currently residing at that location:

EQUITABLE BLUEPRINT & PHOTOPRINT INC
116 Nassau St
New York , NY 10038

I am guessing your item was probably something E. Strauss was printing or reviewing for Donruss at the time, although Topps would have made a more likely client, being in NY themselves with Donruss being in Memphis, TN at the time.

I have seen blue paper proofs before, Fleer stickers and stamps, if I remember correctly. Interesting that these two companies would come up in this same subject. Fleer was in Philly.

I am not sure what I have here if in fact it is anything at all. I stumbled on a web site selling older vintage stuff. He had some O’neill stuff too. It was described as a 1990 Donruss blue paper proof card and it came in the original envelope. To me it looks like someone made a blue copy of a Donruss card. The back is blank.

I got this one in today. Man this baby is razor sharp. Too bad it is so off center. I like it and it fits well with my Yogi cards!

Picked up a 7 card lot of Angels autographs:
1990 Topps Dante Bichette
1988 Topps Johnny Ray
1988 Topps Darrell Miller
1977 Topps Dick Drago
1971 Topps Gerry Moses
1970 Topps Jim Spencer (d.2002)
1990 Donruss Bert Blyleven

picked the lot up for $10.95. Figured a HOF'er, 4 other all stars, and 2 more autos for $1.60 each was a fair add to the collection.
