BucCollector's Wantlist Top Ten

by BucCollector - 13 cards (Last updated on Jun. 17, 2019)


1. 1910 Tip Top Bread D322 #25 Forbes Field


Need this to complete my collection of Pirates' ballparks. There's a nice specimen on eBay now at $1,800.

2. 1948 Bowman #38 Buddy Jeannette


This HOF rookie would be the centerpiece of my Basketball Players from Pittsburgh collection, supplanting my 1957-58 Maurice Stokes. (Still need the Maravich rookie.)

3. 1952 National Tea Labels #19 Danny Murtaugh


One of my PCs. Have never seen this card.

5. 1971-72 Milwaukee Bucks #NNO Barry Nelson


For my Basketball Players from Pittsburgh collection. Nelson's only card.

6. 1973 J.P. Kelly Bank Wichita Aeros #NNO Matt Alexander


For my Alexander PC. I've never seen this card. The 1973 Team Issue I have is sponsored by Kansas State Bank. Maybe this is a variation?

7. 1973 Sherbrooke Pirates Team Issue #NNO Tony Armas


Most of the Pirates of the 1970s didn't have minor league cards. Here's one. I have some of the cards from this set, but not Armas.

8. 1974 Seattle Rainiers #NNO Rick Kuhn


After quitting baseball, Rick Kuhn played basketball at Boston College and was involved in the infamous point-shaving scandal there.

9. 2008 Salute to Columbus Eras Team Issue #NNO Manny Sanguillen


For my Sanguillen PC. I have several other cards from this set.

10. 2012 Sportkings Series E - Top 50 Broadcasters Cut Signatures #TBC-MH Milo Hamilton


Milo joined the Pirates radio team in 1979 and left a year later. He's got an auto card in the 2012 Panini Cooperstown set, but it's got the Astros logo so it doesn't fit my collection of 1970s Pirates autos.

Would be interested in a backstory of why you want these particular cards. Would they finish sets? Are they tough cards of players you collect?

Very cool. Nice to know why people collect what they collect. Sounds like you have a lot of fun with the hobby!

One of my teachers in high school was Rick Kuhn's older brother. I remember that situation well. All came to be with a few high school buddies of Rick who were "Made" if you know what I mean.

That Forbes Field card is beautiful... I'd love to get that for my ballparks collection..
