This Cardinal is beautiful and has perfect decals on his green base, cap and jersey. I can't find a single thing wrong with him except for a scuff on his second feather on the back, which I attempted to show you on the 8th and last picture.I guarantee that this St Louis Cardinal has never been refurbished, nor refinished, nor repainted and is 100% original. Thank you again for watching and please make the DENVER SUPPLY one of your favorite vendors so you can readily and frequently drop by. One final thought, I guarantee and promise satisfaction with each and every item that w. Have 14 nodders from when I was a child.
Back then they were only a buck or two and my Mother would allow me to pick one every time we went to the Children's Boy Store for school clothing. They had an entire wall of them. I took painstaking care of these little guys even then. I even hid this fact from my friends for fear of them making fun of me for playing with dolls.
Loved them then, just as I do today. I gently stuffed newspaper in their heads because even then, I was indeed smarter then the average bear, and he's actually quite intelligent, so they say. I did however, carefully write the number 43 on the back of one of my several Phillies bobbin heads. He is still known today as the "Wes Covington" edition, and he's quite limited, I'll have you know. So each and everyone of these guys turned out negative on my black light test.
They look beautiful, as advertised, but when subjected to your little black light test, BOOM, there it is. Without the aid of that black light, I couldn't tell which of my Black Faced Phillies had been restored. They are both beautiful, and shiney, and mint, and have vibrant colors.But when the black light hits the one that's been repainted, there it is. You may certainly fix them up, paint them up, cover up a nick, scratch, pin hole, whatever, to your own choosing and preference. Feel free to do whatever you like. But the problem now lies, if and when you should decide to sell them. Because now you have an obligation to at least share this.
Now they've been restored and this is going to change the pricing structure. I don't mind owning and displaying mint nodders in my personal collection that have been professionally restored. Don't mind it one little bit.
But I don't expect to pay mint prices for them. It's also far easier for me to sell the mint ones that have NEVER been restored. Yes they're very expensive, I don't deny that.
So the MINT ones that I'm offering are MINT and I now have a very nice selection of them. The point is, get yourself a black light please, you'll be an expert with it in no time.
I would never ever be without mine again. They even sell blacklight flashlights. If you're a nodder collector, this is an absolute must for your own satisfaction as well as protection.
They all sell and receive a lot of action but they don't bring the kinds of prices that the mint ones do.
