Comments: His election to the hall
by the Veteran's committee was announced in December, 2007 and
the search for a Tip Top card (the only period card of Dreyfuss)
started. I didn't anticipate this induction like some of the other
members and didn't own a card yet. In the following years, five
different examples showed up in various auctions but the bidding
went way to high. I was looking for a lower grade example that
fell in my price range. The stars aligned when I finally won a PSA 1
Barney in a June, 2012 eBay auction from seller Neil Keller /
UPDATE: Saw a PSA 2 at the National in Cleveland in Aug 2014,
but couldn't pull the trigger. It's also been on eBay for awhile.
Great card with a full back. It would be a nice upgrade but can't
UPDATE: On the evening of May 10th, I was getting ready for bed and reviewing my saved eBay searches on my iPhone. This Dreyfuss SGC 30 example showed up with a BIN of $1750. The card had a crease across the top of the subjects face but the back was intact/clean. The price was in the ballpark. I had paid approximately $1300 for my PSA 1 card several years before and over teh years really wanted to upgrade. Significant parts of the reverse were unreadable with missing paper having been glued to an album at some point. I kicked back a counteroffer to the seller. In the morning we talked by phone and settled on a price - great dealing. I was very happy with the upgrade I wasn’t really expecting. Thank you BR!
