A Pair of '56s In The Mail Is A Day I Enjoy: Newcombe and Rosen

The Newcombe was somehow set at a BIN price of $1.99, which shocked me, but not enough to prevent me from quickly pulling the trigger. For whatever it's worth, it books for $50. My only gripe was that for $3 shipping, the seller sent the Newcombe in a plain white envelope.


Really?

Some people.

The Rosen came in at a smooth 99 cents in another awesome auction victory, with a couple of bucks to ship it. In a bubble mailer, I might add.

Bonus points to you, random eBayer.

Compared to the Newcombe seller, you're a bonafide mensch.


My Rosen collection is slowly coming to a close in terms of the vintage Rosen I need, with both 1952 offerings - Topps and Bowman - the main cards to allude my grasp thus far.

  1. Nice looking cards. I have been trying to get some Al Rosen cards since you've been posting about him.
