1968 Nolan Ryan RC

Post by vjw0307 on Fri Oct 05, 2012 12:05 pm

I've wanted this card ever since I was a kid...was looking for a good deal on one...didn't care about it being in perfect condition and I was able to snag this one for $54. Going to send off to Koosman and then Nolan to have it signed...when all is said and done, including signing fees, I should have a dual-signed 1968 Nolan Ryan RC for $100...then I'll probably get it slabbed by PSA

Funny because when I was a kid in the late 80's, early 90's...this card was worth over $1,000...now you can pick up one for cheap...the graded ones are still going for good money though...

Soo...can't remember if I updated this to anyone...mailed the card to Jerry Koosman a few months ago..only to get my package back with a letter from Koosman telling me that my card wasn't in the package...and somehow was stolen...

Yea, Jerry wrote back a note saying that the card wasn't in there when he got it...signed a card for me that he included...

Post office said there wasn't anything they could do...

Since then, I've been insuring EVERYTHING that I send out.

I've had a ton of stuff get damanged by the USPS...but that was the first time I've had something stolen

How was it packaged/shipped? Just curious as to what gave it away that there was something of value in there ya know?

Well I made the mistake that day of being in a hurry and instead of running to my ATM to get out money for Koosman's fee, I packaged everything at the counter and got cash back with my transaction...put the cash in the package with the card and mailed it out at the counter. SO, she saw me putting cash in there and I think thats what tipped them off. That was my mistake...but still no excuse.

Our local USPS is full of the most worthless and slow people you will ever meet!

That sucks! I had some stuff stolen too which is why I also insure items. Since I have had a couple issues including a Pujols Auto Jersey which I sold on Ebay. It ended up getting bent. USPS refunded me the full amount for the card and I ended up getting it back!

What is cool is that you can't really tell the card is bent unless you look closely. I ended up with the money for it and a Pujols auto card. I still may try to sell it but obviously will not get what it would be worth due to the crease.

I would be so pissed off if my Ryan RC got ripped off. I have had a few things that have never come back but I also dont send anything with that type of value. Sry to hear about your card!

Yeah, that really sucks on the first one, you totally telegraphed it putting cash in at the counter. Cant trust anyone these days.
Let us know when you get Ryan on it. Im sure there arent too many dual signed ones out there.

From what I heard recently, most of the items sent to his foundation were signed and checks were cashed...hopefully getting it back any day now...

Nervous

For some reason the picture above dissappeared and it won't allow me to edit older posts so here is a photo of the finished card:
