New Blog Feature: Ongoing Checklists

20 Jun

One feature I’ve been meaning to work into the blog for at least a year now, is an ongoing checklist category. Essentially, it will be a “living” checklist of featured sets that will be added to as new variations are found. I will continue to update the posts in the same way I continue to add to the 1990 Pro Set Master Set Checklist post. This will hopefully function as a valuable source of information for junk era set completion.

Suggestions, new info and comments are very welcome with this, but keep in mind that wrong backs, blank backs/fronts and missing foil errors will not make the cut beyond an occasional note of “such and such printing flaws are very common in this issue” etc.

Also, I may note when a particular variation is exceptionally rare or seldom (or never) offered for sale, but I would rather not receive a bunch of “value” or “worth” requests of such cards or “how much will you pay for this” type comments. Mainly because the E&V market tends to fluctuate dramatically on a weekly basis. The lack of catalog info on many variations tends to create a hesitant buying market. One of the key goals of this blog is to provide and share information on variations and to eventually get many of these variations properly cataloged in future annual guides.

    I did not know where else to post this. I found a 1961 #299 Clay Dalrympe with a black scribble hat. I do not know how else to explain it. The black scribble that covers his hat has the same exact gloss as the rest of the card and under magnification it does not look to be added later. Has any one ever seen/heard of this error. I also have a 1961 # 501 Johnny Demerit with the same green in base ball error as the #492 Ron Fairly green in base ball error, does anyone know if it is rare like the Fairly card?
    Thanks for any help,
    If anyone would like pics let me know.
