promineat footballers 07/08

NEEDHAM

at the moment,one of our beloved bbs members is the highest bidder,but that could change in the next few days:rolleyes: (as i need a spare one)

happy bidding all...

link--needham card

a message to any mods(neiltheeagle),as i'm not the person selling the card,all i'm doing is letting others out there know about this rare palace item,

Neil the Eagle 21-01-2007 12:35 PM

Although I put a bid in, realistically, I know I have absolutely no hope of getting the card.

I don't think I've won an auction for a Palace card that I really wanted on ebay in over a year. Bids have been going crazy, I got seriously stung for one item whilst bidding drunk and my lesson has been learnt.

Now I'm even losing out on small recent card collections, I've been bidding on simply to top up my trading 'stock'.

Very disillusioned with the whole thing at the moment, I'm finding greater reward in doing deals with other collectors at the moment.

Got it!

Have to say, John, seeing as I only said on the previous page that Needham was the one card I need to complete my set, I don't quite understand why you would flag it up to all the Palace card collectors via this forum, especially as you say you wanted it yourself as a swap

Still whatever the motive, completed the set now, so you have one less collector to compete with next time a card from this series appears

thanks:p

JOHN1509 28-01-2007 08:24 PM

i'm dammed if i do..dammed if i don't..

it's great to hear from other card collectors( like myself) when rare cards appear on ebay....but...the downside of things.it push's the price up :bash: ,
think in future,i'll keep quiet;)

Neil the Eagle 28-01-2007 10:27 PM

Well done, Dorking.

It all worked out in the end. My own Taddy collection is now one better off as a result of this too. You, sir, are a gentleman and a scholar.

Very good price, considering what you thought you might end up paying. Bet the missus is happy/relieved too!

Neil the Eagle 28-01-2007 10:32 PM

It's fantastic to know that a complete set of Taddy 1908's exists in the hands of one Palace collector.

I know various people have a few of the extremely rare 1913 palace Taddy's, but don't know of anyone with a complete set. Would be good to try and get as many of these scanned as poss.

Dorking .Eagle 29-01-2007 08:25 AM

1913 taddys - extremely rare!

Neil the Eagle 29-01-2007 10:10 AM

Indeed. From speaking to other collectors, I've still yet to come across anyone who has a specimen of the following: Collyer (1913), Davies, Hanger, Hughes, Hunt, Rhodes, Spottiswood.

And I've yet to ask whether the collectors who do possess the others if they would agree to have them scanned.

Dorking .Eagle 29-01-2007 04:52 PM

I've got Hewitt and an appalling specimen of Bright. I reckon some child played all sorts of playground games with it during WW1

BBD scanned most of my early ones onto the eagles100 website

dam just missed out on a card on ebay
went for 5.52

Legible Ltd Fam Footballers 1960 DEAKIN CRYSTAL PALACE

Dorking .Eagle 02-02-2007 08:52 AM

Never seen that one before John

(and it wasn't me - I never even saw it!)

Neil the Eagle 03-02-2007 11:08 AM

Legible aren't true cards as such, though. They are the photo pages pulled out from the annual publication of the time called Soccer Diary.

I've amassed quite a few of these down the years. There are quite nice, but wouldn't pay too much for them. One of these days, I'm going to reorganise the spreadsheet into categories which better reflect this.

There's a Johnny Byrne one on there now.

Dorking .Eagle 04-03-2007 09:48 AM

New card series either out now or coming very soon

(full page advert in Burnley programme)

Panini 2007 Championship Trading Card game

288 in series, therefore 12 for each of the 24 Championship clubs

(there's also 4 checklists)

collectors binder also available

endorsed by the Coca Cola FLC

with any luck some enterprising person will buy boxes of these cards, put together complete team sets and flog them en ebay, without me having to buy a single packet to get every Palace card.

Takes the romance out of collecting them the traditional way, but I've got no desire to buy packet after packet of Southend or Barnsley players

Dorking .Eagle 04-03-2007 10:03 AM
