Collected baseball cards from 1986-1995, and again from 2014 to Present. A simple blog to discuss the hobby.
Lots of beautiful cards in there, great variety ! Glad to see you were able to find a nice Ted Williams action shot
The one you posted was the inspiration to look for one, so thanks for that!
Very nice! Lots of nice Pirates with that Clement and Stargell!
I get why Topps called him "Bob" once or twice, but by 1969 you'd think he'd have been able to convince them to use his real name! I can't remember if I saw the Stargell on someone else's blog or not, but it was in the bargain bin, so it was an easy choice to go for it. I'm a big fan of second year player cards (since they are usually the first ones that feature the player on his own).
Nice bunch of cards. Love the 71 action shots. Gotta love the Fleer Williams set.
I think I prefer the 71 Topps action shots to anything from 72-73-74; I think this set had pretty fantastic photography.
I'd say any card show that nets you new vintage Bankses and Clementes is a great show. Glad to see you found a dime box as well. Looks like you scored a few nice pickups from it!
I developed a taste for the Pacific Legends set after getting some Twins from the set from you - I was happy to have found Feller for a dime!
Lots of goodness there. I noticed you got a nice 1970 No Neck.
Yeah, I dig 60s and 70s hitters wearing batting gloves on cards - the bat barrel pose gets used a lot, but Williams' is a pretty good example. The pose should be reserved for more intimidating hitters, like No Neck . . . come to think of it, I'm going to go look around for a Jim Rice bat barrel pose...
