Hi.  I'll start this month off with the below N760 Papoose Cigar Presidential Candidates series tobacco card.  It's the only one that I have ever come across and now the lone example in Todd's database.

Nice one, Jeff! I'm not big into N cards (financially, I have to draw the line somewhere), but I always appreciate a rare specimen.

Most of these are late October pickups, but that ship has sailed, so I'm lumping them in with November.

Jason - A lot of great pick-ups.  The Fightin' Marines pack is actually the O-Pee-Chee Canadian version.  I find it pretty bold to change the flag from American to Canadian for this iconic Iwo Jima image.  - Jack J.

Thanks, Jack! I hadn't noticed before that the flag was different. I think I like it even more now!

I just won a group of 4 very worn N283's from a seller in Albuquerque.  Taggert is detached, but the other 3 are still intact, barely.  

The seller told me he found them along with a bunch of other cards in a storage unit.  Moral of the story:  keep digging!

Picked up a few R9's with one grading a 3. Difficult set to pursue. A couple of Airplane Series, some BION's, a Tootsie, a few Foreign Legion upgrades, some William Heaslip Coca Cola cards and a second Diver's License (with Ava) always looking good for the collection.

I appreciate the encouraging words, I'll pass them on...

Appreciate the...background on the Mutoscope.  

1934 National Chicle Sky Birds Earhart.jpg 

This just in.  Not a collector but I liked the design.

Allen,
You outdid yourself again. And the cards are nice too 😉

Nice pickups everyone!

Bill,

Those N283s are so difficult. Nice pickups. I wonder who has the largest accumulation of N283s. Any way, love seeing them here.

Alan,

You have only seven posts; feel free to step up to the plate and post a little more often! Your posts are always appealing as I also have an interest in...airplane cards.

Wait. Allen posted some cards? Didn't see them...…. Always a pleasure the two times a year you come by. Tootsie and RBION - nice to see you've branched out a bit. They're both neat sets....

man deserves to have his name speeeeled correctly.

Jason, quite the haul!  I see a Pop Up in there, is that the elusive type example?

Dave, it's actually my third Pop-Up (I had the opportunity to buy a fourth once, but it was too rich for my blood, especially since I already had a couple for type). I also have Frankenstein's monster and one that will remain unknown because it's in a sealed pack that I don't intend to open.

If you ever run across one, I'd love to trade you a Pop-Up for a Flip-Up....

Netted this complete WWG Jungle Gum from a recent auction. Always loved the art (adapted from T29 Hassan animals, and perhaps Hassan used an earlier source?) and been working the set piecemeal for awhile. Good to put this to bed all at once!

I have been wanting to show these two cards for a long time. Today I decided to fight with my computer and do it. I wonder what happened to the rest of the cards that were on the sheet the right card was printed on? But the one here has got to be the best combination.

Some great pickups everyone!

Jason, Wow! Some really great items.

Here are a few crumbs I've gotten (many from late Oct which I haven't been able to post until now as I have been very busy with life for the past several weeks)...

Strip of movie star cards...
IMG_5880.jpg 

I was outbid in Tom's auction on all the colored Zoom cards but managed to pick up this lot..
IMG_5881.jpg 

A World War Gum wrapper variant I needed...
IMG_5882.jpg 

These are all new but it is interesting how retro inspired many of the newer products are. (Halloween trading card based on the original film printed on retro stock, Funny Fiends are a nod to the old Ugly Stickers, and some Mars Attacks promo's for the upcoming Mars Attacks Uprising series with some cool Mars Attacks Initial stickers - also some Marvel convention cards from the 90's)...

IMG_5893.jpg 

One of my favorite pickups - Dino Candy Halloween Treat boxes with mini cards and 3D backs. These are awesome!
IMG_5894.jpg 
IMG_5895.jpg 

I'm a big fan of the "D" bakery bulletin issues from the 1930's-40's and was happy to pick these up...
IMG_5913.jpg  IMG_5914.jpg  IMG_5915.jpg  IMG_5916.jpg 

A near set of the 1930 Dixie Ice Cream premiums (these are mostly the "unnamed" versions which are supposed to be much rarer than the "named" versions, yet I have way more of these than I do the named ones. Could the info actually be reversed or have I just been lucky?)..
IMG_5917.jpg 

Lastly, some Gum Berries Lids proof cards. (Does anyone know the story on these? I often see mint sets of the Rocks' O Gum die-cut lids yet never see the Gum Berries Lids except occasionally like these square cut cards.)..
