Comments: In April, 2009 I purchased two raw examples on eBay from seller Chock Full of Cards (gretch2662). I submitted them to PSA and they graded NM 7 and NM-MT 8 in February, 2010. I picked up another raw example in April, 2011. But, before I could submit it a bunch of PSA 10 Perez-Steele cards popped up on the bay in November, 2011 from seller 4 Sharp Corners as Buy It Nows. I won this GEM MT Joe Williams along with Pud Galvin, Rube Foster, Bullet Joe Rogan, William Hulbert, and Bill Foster.
