SGC graders have been busy during the National, reviewing submissions from collectors and dealers. One such group required a lot of oversize holders.
The collection of virtually untouched black and white cards from the defunct gum company’s later history consisted of a whopping 267 cards including multiples of Hall of Famers like Joe DiMaggio, Jimmie Foxx, Bill Dickey and Hank Greenberg.
Livshin dropped off some of them at SGC‘s booth Wednesday during the National Sports Collectors Convention. A few dozen were graded with more to follow and the balance will be completed after the show.
They were actually located in Kentucky and the owner of a small card shop there called Livshin who drove to the Commonwealth to complete the deal.
While R303-B’s aren’t the most valuable 1930s issue, such a find is stunning in size, scope and quality. At least six sets were part of the collection with a few more easily completed with the addition of a card or two.
We caught up with Livshin and SGC’s Earl Johnson who talked about the find and showed us more of the cards in the video:
