A few new pickups

3 new additions this week. 

1)  Square edge Black Box with a large autograph.
2)  Badly off centered Loop Scribble w/ Saw-Cut.  Makes the cut seem even longer!
3)  FF with a longer far left cut.  Probably the furthest to the left cut I've seen.

No new versions but something different for the collection.

Fleer case numbers revisited

Thanks to Mike for reaching out to me about sealed factory case he owns.  The case is a 8 box cello case with all the standard markings but has an odd date code.  11089.  Doing some Googling I found pictures of other similar cases.  One has the exact same code. 

These cases appear to be very late run (Spring 1989) Grocery Store Display cello cases.   Supposedly inside is a Gary Carter cutout for display.

I can't explain the 5 digit codes on these but they do appear to be 1989 Fleer baseball.

Recent Pickup. Black Box with Dots

New pickup this month.  A round Black Box version with a print dot on the small letter N, a Red/Yellow dot on the bill of the hat and a white swirl mark on the back.  Not a new version, but a nice new variation of a standard Black Box card.

New Pickup - Scribble w/ F sawcut

Something new.  A regular Black Scribble w/ F with a Saw-Cut.  I picked it up because the slit runs through the #7 on the jersey.  Probably the farthest right I've seen a cut on a scribble card.
