Comments: In March, 2000 I picked up a tribute card of Pennock a PSA 8 1969 Fleer card through an eBay win. It was replaced with a contemporary issue, a raw 1924 Diaz card that I purchased through a hobby friend in March, 2004. It was eventually submitted to PSA and graded VG; subsequently sold in October, 2010. I started searching for a W513 issue for Pennock and won this SGC 92 example on eBay the following month.
