Description Every so often you stumble onto something that is so amazing that it almost defies description. This Rawlings Advisory Staff photo falls into that category.
I won a lot of 20 of these from these from a seller with no feedback; a newbie, who had these photos for 40 years. I kept most of them (including some that are not even on the checklist) and am selling the few that I already had -- some of which are in better shape than the ones I have kept but mine are autographed.
This Dick Groat photo is one of the photos that I have autographed by the player. Dick played for the Bucs from 1952 - 1962 and was the MVP in 1960. He was traded to St. Louis in an insane trade and that very year was #2 in the MVP voting behind Sandy KoufaX. This photo is a gem: bright gloss, sharp photo, no creases, clean back and just touches on a corner or two. Check out my postcards, advisory photos, and other items! This great photo would make a superb addition to your collection or a great gift for that special fan. Good luck!
Payment and Shipping

Description of Item: I am a collector and hobbyist and, as such, try to provide the kinds of scans and descriptions that I would

Invoicing: I try to send an eBay invoice within 24 hours of the close of the auction. You do not have to wait until then to pay. If you are in Canada, the postage for most cards and postcards will be the same as for the United States. I will adjust it slightly (no more than $1.00) for larger items and books. If you are not in North America, please ask before bidding.

Payment: I greatly prefer PayPal payments, but will accept checks drawn on a US bank, US money orders, and US dollars. If you have adequate positive feedback or are a repeat buyer, I will not hold your check.

Do I combine Shipping? You bet. No extra charges, either, unless you buy more than two graded cards in which case I will add $.50 per card after that.

Shipping: I try to ship twice a week, usually Tuesdays and Fridays, but sometimes my business travel schedule gets in the way. I will ship outside North America, but on large items I may have to adjust the shipping charge to reflect the increased cost.

Insurance: As a collector myself, I try to package everything securely, and so far I have had no complaints. I cannot be responsible for items that get mangled in transit unless you purchase insurance.

Feedback: If all goes well I will leave positive feedback, and I'd ask you to do the same. So far, my only negative feedback was from a buyer with no feedback. He was a unfamiliar with the eBay concept and became quite upset that I would not ship the item before he had paid for it. Nonetheless, I am still pleased to sell to buyers who are new to eBay.
