Collecting Yastrzemski - July/August, 2012

Rate this Entry
Well, this certainly has been an exciting couple of months for me with my Yastrzemski collection. July had started off so slowly that I had doubts that I would add much of anything. It wasn't until halfway through the month that I made a deal on SCF & that was only for 1 card. This same time also brought news that Michael had decided to turn down Seattle's final offer to sign him to a major league contract & return to Vanderbilt for his senior year. The third week of July brought me two more trades as well as a purchase for a 3rd new Yaz card to add to my personal collection. The final full week of the month included one final purchase from SCF, an unexpected package from a good friend & ended with two very nice Yastrzemski only lots that I managed to win on eBay. I tried to add one of the higher book valued minor league sets that Mike was in, but when the bidding would've put me over $30 I decided to wait for the next one.

August started off quickly with a trade from SCF, but then work kept me away from being able to spend much time on the site for a couple of weeks. Then came the news of the cards that I submitted to BGS on the site. Here is what I got:
1965 Old London Coins Carl Yastrzemski 8.0 (First ever graded)
1961 Topps Carl Yastrzemski 4.0
1962 Topps Stamps Carl Yastrzemski 4.0
1964 Bazooka Stamps Carl Yastrzemski S3 3.0 (First ever graded)
1962 Post Carl Yastrzemski 0.0 (Came back with AUTHENTIC)
1962 Post Canadian Carl Yastrzemski 0.0 (Came back with AUTHENTIC)
1988 Vancouver Canadians ProCards Mike Yastrzemski 9.5 (My highest graded card yet)
1988 Vancouver Canadians CMC Mike Yastrzemski 9.0
2010 Cotuit Kettleers Choice Michael Yastrzemski 9.0
2011 Cotuit Kettleers Choice Michael Yastrzemski 0.0 (Came back as having a shaved edge)
I was very disappointed in the last one. I've been in printing for over 25 years now, so I think I would've noticed if this card had such an obvious flaw. Biggest problem is that I can't even replace this card for a couple more years as these sets can no longer be sold until everyone in the set has exhausted their college eligibility. I didn't even receive a refund from the card because they said it still went through their services. To me, that is a matter of opinion as the card wasn't encased & that is the only detail about their service that I really truly care about! They haven't heard the end of this one from me! Anyway, made one more trade for a Yaz that isn't even listed in the SCF database, which is always nice & submitted my 1970 Dayton Daily News, & that one will more than likely come back with an AUTHENTIC label as well as those were cut from a newspaper. The month ended with one final purchase from eBay that I was extremely happy with:

If anyone noticed, I think perhaps SWOWannabe did the spell checking for the photo!

Special thanks to those that helped me add to my collection!

    Hey Aaron,
    The only coins I need still are the 1962 Salada Clip Back & 1962 Shirriff. I am also missing the 1975, 1976 & 1979 (9930 AB) Kellogg's issues. Please let me know if you have any of those.

    Thanks,
    Kelly

    Are you looking to trade or sell? Either way, what are you looking to get for the card?
