PC: Type 1 of Nat King Cole in Studio

Post image 1
Post image 2

Lots of posts of late on Type 1 photos. I've started to expand into my other love, music collecting. I love Nat King Cole and got this recently from Heritage's Entertainment Auction. They had some amazing Type 1 photos of Hollywood stars from the past. I love Nat King Cole and his velvety voice. He did a whole album of International versions -- Should check it out if you like old school classic singers.

I loved this photo showing him in studio. Just something about it instantly transports me to the first time I heard him sing Perfidia. (https://open.spotify.com/track/3QQl3tSiEooVLQvC8IT5EE?si=fbff114cfb424ac6)

Been hunting for some time. Finally got it. While not a high grade, its a decent eye appeal card and clean back.

PC: Type 1 Willie Mays Photo from Rookie Era + Polo Grounds Seat Relic Card

Post image 1

Baseball is back!!! While I'm not a Giants fan, much respect and love for the greats. Say Hey Kid is one of my favorites. This is a photo by William Jacobellis taken in early 50s from the Polo Grounds. Plus a cool card from the 2003 Topps Heritage set in the 1954 Topps design, which was an insert where they had seat relic cards.

But an early Willie Mays photo and this image speaks so many things for me. Joy, excitement, proud, and youth.

Great Cards, Not beauty pageant winners [PC Post]

Post image 1

One of "my favorite" sets to collect, is the Fleer Tiffany base-parrallel from 97-98. It's a passion play, for sure, because at 1:20 it's a box hit, and with a large set, you may need an entire case to pull a couple HoFers and maybe an MJ/Kobe.

This set also includes the Crystal 1:2 insert, which is also cool, and features a silver foil. I believe Fleer did an amazing job with the "photography" from this set, and "design", all this.

One of my odder cards, which I probably overpaid for (like all Rodman collectors) is a Rodman Tiffany in SGC 9.

Also, like all Rodman collectors, I also have the Crystal parallel, in PSA 9.
