Founder, President, and no longer the only member of the Official Billy Hoeft Fan Club. EEK and Mike Rich have muscled their way in. Time to get membership cards printed I guess.
Sad to say, Billy Hoeft has passed away. What a great guy. (May 17, 1932 Ė March 16, 2010), in Canadian Lakes, MI. Any and all Billy items will be given a wonderful new home, pictures, articles, whatever!

I need: '57 Graphic Arts Postcard #11, '61? Jay Publishing (Photo Pack), and any other odds and ends I may have missed. June 2008: I found out that there is a 1966 Pro's Pizza issue for Billy, and I want one! And a 2010 Topps Heritage, guess Iíll have to get one of those, too.
MOST WANTED LIST:

1966(?) Pro's Pizza Billy Hoeft Cubs (does it even exist???)

These are star upgrades, mostly set-killers. If you have one you think might fit the bill, please donít hesitate to ask if I have anything in return.
'61T- 344 Koufax VG+ (upgrade)
'62T- Mantle IA (VG+-Ex) (upgrade)
I have a modest number of star trade bait from the '50's and '60's.....so if you have one of the biggies on my list, please ask me first if I have anything to swap for the big boys....... (these are my priorities, I also need some biggies from í56 and '57 listed below.
Note about upgrades- I am not picky about my cards. I don't need PSA 10's at all. The ones I have marked as upgrades are almost unrecognizable as cards, they have bullet holes, blood stains, or the card is only half there. I only look for upgrades for the sets I care the most about. Any PSA 2 would be a HUGE upgrade. Any downgrades will find a new home in OBC. I donít put much effort into upgrading most stars.

Zeenuts- trying for a type card, one from every year, condition unimportant, common beaters welcome. I have 1916, 1919, 1920, 1922, 1923, 1925, 1928, 1929, 1930, 1931, 1932, and 1933-36.

Need: 1911-1915, 1917, 1918, 1921, 1924, 1926, 1927, and 1933.
