vrooomed's Most Wanted Phillies cards

by vrooomed - 7 cards (Last updated on Nov. 8, 2017)


1. 1955 Bowman #64 Curt Simmons


Getting the trio of 1955 Bowman cards would complete Topps and Bowman for 1955.

2. 1955 Bowman #236 Murry Dickson


Getting the trio of 1955 Bowman cards would complete Topps and Bowman for 1955.

3. 1955 Bowman #294 Wally Moses


Getting the trio of 1955 Bowman cards would complete Topps and Bowman for 1955.

4. 1963 Topps #553 Brock Davis / Jim Gosger / John Herrnstein / Willie Stargell


The John Herrnstein Rookie. AKA the Willie Stargell RC.

5. 1966 Topps #591 NL Rookies - Bart Shirley / Grant Jackson


This is the oddest card - when I first started looking for this, it was listed with a value of $40, but it was selling for $150 and up. Now, it's listed at $200. And correctly so. But a RC of commons really shouldn't be so pricey.

6. 1967 Topps #560 Jim Bunning


This along with the Rojas always sells much higher than it should, but finding these centered and in good shape is a pretty tall task.

7. 1967 Topps #595 Cookie Rojas


See the comment on the Bunning.

Nice, I'll eventually get around to purchasing the John Herrnstein rookie as well.

I'm finishing up my 1966 set, 37 cards remaining.  I finally broke down at the beginning of the year and bought the Grant Jackson.  I think it was $125, but a REALLY nice one, well-centered and great color.  I kept hoping I'd stumble across one for $50 -$70 that I'd be happy with but the few in that price range were always beat-up. 

Good Luck!

Is the Jackson so expensive because it's a high number?  I can't think of another explanation, but that logic would make all the high # commons expensive.

Because 4 types of collectors chase the cards   Set builders,   Phillies team builders, Dodgers team builders  and they last  The people that are called ROOKIE CARD Collectors.  I know it not they confussing Grant for Reggie

Being a Hi number these cards where mostly bought by dealers in Sept  as the retail stores wanted Football Cards. Philadelphia gum if NFL city.  I had to save my money and send to a dealer in Southern Calif.  I think  it was KIT YOUNG  and buy the 7th series. If I wanted to break that up what a great   $3.75 investment.
