  • Amazing Oddball Issues:

    I stated in another thread that there are some oddball issues that I would love to have (over the mainstream ones). These items are rarely seen, are expensive, and look beautiful. Let's check out a few of them below!

    (NOTE: If you are the owner of any of these pictures and don't want me to post them here, then please let me know).

    I've had five different people ask me for this card over the summer (I don't have it). This is a tough local issue of one of the greatest forwards from the prewar era.

    If you own the uncut box (seen in the picture), then it deserves to be in a museum. Finding the panel is also really difficult.

    Finding the card is easy, but good luck with the box! I believe the Orr came with either Vachon or Sittler - the latter version is more desirable.

    The baseball ones were printed in larger quantities, but the hockey ones are rare (basketball is even rarer!) The Howe is the most-sought after by collectors. The blue tint is extremely rare.

    Mikita recently passed away and a lot of collectors have been picking up his Topps rookie. However, this one is my favorite card of his. Really tough to find in any grade.

    That Fredrickson is a sweet card. There’s a PSA 1 on eBay...

      Ya, some rare stuff there, I would call them Food Issue opposed to Oddball, for that they are not.
