USA cards Want List - Jon Hardgrove


Cards listed below are wanted for personal collection. ANY condition will be considered. The word “all” means I have none in the set and would like to acquire all of the cards in the set. The word “none” means I have the complete set. Would consider the purchase of complete sets even if I have some in the set.


In addition to the listed cards, I will consider ALL cards from the following sets in any condition: Auto Drivers (Hassan, Mecca 1910), Automobiles (Turkey Red 1911), S-100 Automobile Pennants, Marhoefer Indy, Stark & Wetzel Indy, 1971 STP Racing Drivers, 1984~1986 Sportstar Photographics (both cards and stickers), 1926 Spalding Champions (auto and motorcycle only). I am documenting these sets, and looking for printing variations.
