About this set: If you are reading this, hopefully you will get some value from the scans.
I have scanned my set so you can get an idea of conditions, grades, and identification.
I can’t thank Marc and Tim enough for their help over the years as they shared info and scans on cards. Too many of the cards I have amassed were never in Dr Beckett’s tome.
I found that looking at scans of cards was invaluable.
Of course, how does a scan of the front of a 76 Buchman disk tell you it’s different from the 77 Dairy Isle? Or 81 Topps Super home team is different from the 81 Topps Super National? And that is why I also included a scan of the back of the card.
I have bought raw that was labeled incorrectly and never knew. I have bought graded cards that were label incorrectly and never knew.
I have some cards here that are still incorrect (the 84 7-11’s come to mind).
Hopefully my mistakes and these scans will help you. As I learn more I’ll make updates and hopefully get cards to make replacements.
My collection has grown quicker than I ever expected (hence some of the errors). That is a tribute to friends and fellow collectors. I already mentioned Marc and Tim who deserve a second mention but thanks also to JEB, Dartonxx75, and Joe for lots of help and encouragement.
Lastly, I need to mention my friend, Mike from college, that got me back into collecting which was my only therapy during some rough years. And my friend Ken, that had to show me a few times how to get the front and back of a card on one scan.
And believe it or not, the wife hasn't left me yet over this set. I must be lucky.
