Now that baseball has started, it time to resurrect this thread (Of course I am still following the Vancouver Canucks in the NHL hockey playoffs).

Although I am now a Toronto Blue jays fan, baseball has never been the same for me since the loss of my team that I grew up with, the Montreal Expos , having moved to Washington in 2005.

There was a great United States sheet a couple of years ago featuring historic ball parks, so last year I had a Picture Postage stamp made based on a photo I took of Jarry Park, the original home park of the Expos before they moved to the Olympic Stadium in 1976. 2009 was the 40th anniversary of the first Major League game in Montreal. I share it now as I was not a member of this esteemed forum last year.

Some light reading for the SC family, on baseball cards and trading.

Author: One of my favourite journalists Mr. Les Winick


Les Winick Reports from Chicago

The Price was Right

If you ever take a table at a stamp bourse or have a retail shop, here is a
legal situation that actually happened in the US and may effect you one day. The
case went to court and a decision was handed down by a judge in late April, 1991.

A baseball card dealer had a retail store open to the public. Saturday is his busy day
and he usually has one or two people helping him out for the day. On this fateful
Saturday, he couldn't get his regular part-timers, so he hired a salesgirl from a
jewellery shop next door. This happens in stamp dealing very often, when dealers get
a family member or friend to help them at a show.
One of the rare baseball cards in the display case was marked $1,200. The card dealer
received it on consignment from another dealer, who wanted $1,000 for it and any
price over that cost would be profit for the seller. This happens in stamp dealing very
often when dealers consign material to other dealers.
That Saturday was busy and there were about 20 customers in the store. A young man
walked in and asked the temporary salesgirl if the card was really worth $12.00. The
girl replied yes, it is a very good card. The customer paid the $12.00, received a
receipt with the description of the card, and left.
Several days later, when the owner discovered that the rare card was missing, he
checked the receipts and found that he received only $12.00 for the $1,200 card. The
owner found out who bought the card when the young man's friend came into the store
looking for copies of the same card.
The baseball card dealer visited the family and offered $100 for the card's return. The
young collector had a signed receipt and refused to return the card. The dealer filed a
lawsuit against the young man's father, claiming that he refused to make his son return
the card. He also claimed that an employee, not him, sold the card for the incorrect
price.
In court, the youngster admitted that he owned 50,000 baseball cards and knew the
true value of the purchased card. He also owns a card catalogue which lists the card at
$800 to $1,200, depending on condition. The card was in excellent condition.
The judge took the case under advisement at this stage. I checked with a philatelic
attorney at this point, who stated that the dealer has a good case since the buyer's
knowledge will play an important role. If the buyer knows the value, and is
experienced, then he "took advantage" of the seller. However, it is up to the court to
decide.
The case was simple up to this point. The youngster traded the rare card to another
collector for two other cards. When the store owner found this out, he immediately
informed the judge. The judge ordered that trade voided, and demanded that the
original card be kept in possession of the youngster
until a decision was made. After several additional court appearances requested by the
judge for additional information, this is what was decided.
Attorneys for both sides and the judge reached an "out-of-court" settlement. The rare
baseball card will be sold at auction with the proceeds going to charity. The youngster
is out $12.00 and the card dealer has to pay his consignee the $1,000. Both have to
pay their own legal fees. However, the baseball card dealer received a lot of publicity
from the case and his business dramatically increased.
