The oldest one so far...

Hey guys,

Been a couple of weeks since my last post but here we are. Here's the oldest card I've found so far during my Flea Market Adventures:

It's a  Steve or Stephen (depending if you ask mom or dad) Souchock 1954 Bowman. Got it for .40 cents as part of other 41 cards from the same flea seller. Didn't know who Mr. Souchock was when I found it laying there and honestly I don't care that much. It's the oldest one I have in my collection. According to Beckett Baseball Almanac this card has a STAGGERING price tag of USD$12 in N/M condition JUST LIKE MINE :)

1965 Houston's Rookies Stars AUTOGRAPH?

Have you ever found a great card and suddenly you realize that its previous owner was sign-o-freak? Well Beckett Almanac, say hello to 1965 topps #16 Joe Morgan / Sonny Jackson AUTOGRAPH VARIATION!!

I was so mad at this card the first time i found it laying with other hundred cards in a huge box, that didn'y buy it right there. I took another visit to make up my mind.

And in case YOU were the owner, next time please get someone else to sign it also so it won't look so obvious with the same handwriting.
