Strive For '65 Saturday: Trying To March Along

18 Mar 2017
Strive for '65 | 1965 Set Build | Master Want List
 Current card count: 259/598 (261/600) 43.6%

Well this set build is crawling, inching or rather micro-millimetering along. Here is the link to my last update which wasn't as long a gap as the previous time between updates. Looks like this update only increases the count by one card, even though I had gotten two 1965s recently. Explanation with card descriptions.

Saturday 25 Feb 2017:
1 card Sportlots auction 75¢ + $1.85 Shipping
568 Ron Taylor Cardinals. No special story with this card. I did bid on another Sportlots auction for a small handful lot of 1965 cards, I forget how many were in the lot maybe no more than a dozen, but I low-balled a little and got outbid.

1 card purchased from Ebay as BIN. $7.16 Free Shipping.
574 Roy Sievers Senators - on card autograph in blue sharpie ink. OK so this card I already had a copy (which I show first below). So it doesn't get included for the "Strive For '65" card count. There was no "certificate of authenticity" (COA) for this card/purchase. I don't know for sure if it is a legitimate signed in person or through the mail autograph, but I will think that it is. I have no plans to sell it at anytime so that point is sort of moot as it is for most of my other signed cards. I like it that is what matters to me. I should blog about this card on my Curly W Cards blog.

my previous non-signed copy with light written in "6" in blue ball point ink for some weird reason

For some reason whenever I look at Roy's '65 card I keep thinking he is the manager.
