vrooomed's Most Wanted Phillies cards

by vrooomed - 5 cards (Last updated on Apr. 5, 2018)

1. 1955 Bowman #294 Wally Moses

Getting the last 1955 Bowman card would complete Topps and Bowman for 1955.

3. 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.

4. 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.

5. 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.

David - I can't figure out why it sells for so much. It's crazy!

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.

The '66 Shirley/Jackson card is on my wantlist because Shirley is part of a team that played in the World Series. These are the kind of cards that really sting needing to get. Not quite as bad as the '63 Rose rookie card though. Technically I need 3 of them for my collections. Pedro Gonzalez for the '63 Yankees (World Series team), Ken McMullen for the '63 Dodgers (World Series team) and Rose himself for the Rookie of the Year collection. It would only be worse if I was a White Sox collector instead of a Cubs collector since the 4th on the card is Al Weis of the White Sox. Phew! Dodged a bullet there... only need 3 Rose rookies instead of 4.

I looked at this list before and maybe just didn't believe the Grant Jackson thing. Just veriifed it on eBay. That is mind-blowing. I don't understand it at all. And now I just wish that he'd been a rookie in 1964 or that I had been born in 1967. Since I'm doing the all-sets-to-birth-year thing. Someday, many years from now, I'll be hunting this card. And I will be bitter about it. Getting all the high numbered 1970, 1971 and 1972 commons was painful enough....

I know the pain of being able to afford the 1966 and 1967 7th series cards.  I'll probably never complete my Mets in those years.  If I had known as a kid, I would have kept buying the baseball packs. But by the time the 7th series came out I was buying the newly released football.
