Duensing Does It Again!

Sometimes we get amazing donations but there are a few folks that continue to blow us away, time and time again. If you follow us, you have seen some of the incredible donations from Brian Duensing from Lowell, Indiana. Mr. Duensing continues to donate and donate and it’s not just your everyday commons; it’s event used, autographs and all types of amazing stuff.

Mr. Duensing deserves an entire post all to him.

Here is just a small touch of the stuff he donated, just THIS time! I couldn’t take a picture of all of it but I tried to get a nice little sample. The donation had autographs, event used, very low serial number, complete sets, complete insert sets, prototype and even our FIRST EVER PRINTING PLATE 1/1!!!

Next up we got a very special donation from Art and Diane Gutowski from Dearborn, Michigan on behalf of their son, Chris, who passed away. We love getting donations like this because it’s a great way for a collection to carry on the joy from generation to generation. These cards could have been thrown away and lost forever but now they will be passed on to kids all over and continue to bring joy for years to come! A huge thanks to Mr. and Mrs. Gutowski for trusting us with this amazing donation!
