As I recall, lots of kids did that with their baseball cards in the 50's,
and millions of dollars went click, click, click gone forever.

/s/ ikeyPikey (who prefers addressed to unaddressed, because the addressed FDCs are covers that usually traveled thru the mail, where as the "C" in "unaddressed FDC" is best read as "Cargo")

I prefer addressed FDCs, too. I especially like it when they have Registered Mail labels or destination postmarks on them, since those provide additional evidence that they actually went through the mail.

Harmer Sale 3029 The Eldon Mohler Collection of US Illustrated First Dday Covers Part 1

Lot 4642 https://hrharmer.com/en/_auctions/&...7&lotno=4642

803-34, 839-51, 1938-39 c-$5 Presidential Series, collection of over 1,000 in carton, mostly partial sets and singles, coils and electric eyes included, spotted a terrific set of c-50c Amon Carter combination covers in blocks with 4th Bureau corresponding issues, a good selection of hand-typed cachets, add-ons, hand drawn period covers, postcards and listed cachet makers; couple dozen $1-$5 values including a 832c plate block, mostly Very Fine (Estimate $2,000-3,000)


The "Start Price" (which I prefer to a silent reserve price) was U$D 1,000 before the 18% buyer's premium.

No bidders. Ouch.

Cheers,

/s/ ikeyPikey (who was a little surprised that no one figured that there'd be enough U$D 10-20 items to be worth the start price, but that's me)

Yes, the baseball cards in the spokes is a painful memory. My 1959 Topps cards were anxiously collected, however, in those days rookies were unknown and uncared about. I specifically remember using a pink Bob Gibson rookie card in such a way because it never will be worth anything!!! Yeah....right!!!
