The Brothers Alou

I've been working on my Alou Brothers collection this summer, and now I can showcase two completed pages of Alou awesomeness.

Big brother Felipe's first Topps card was in 1959, Matty joined the trading card fraternity in 1961, and Jesus rose to the ranks of the big leagues in time for the 1964 release.

 I inserted the Post Felipe Alou so I could line up the brothers starting with Jesus' Rookie Year:
 Honorary Alou Brother Ron Herbel* makes an appearance. These two pages are the first two completed, hoping to add a few more of the short prints (it's like Topps picked a different Alou Brother to be Short Printed every year....)


Enjoy these Matty Alou oddballs:



*Ron Herbel is NOT an honorary Alou brother, as far as I know...

    1. Oh, don't worry. Moises is around, I just found a nice Score rookie of him in a dime box! I might end up adding Mel Rojas too, he's another Alou nephew.

  2. The Alous are definitely among my favorite guys to collect.

  3. As a project this fall, I'll be organizing all my junk commons, if I find any Moises (or Felipe mgr cards), I might send them your way.

    1. Sweet! I'll gladly take them off your hands!
      Enjoy organizing those cards, I bet you'll find some great ones in there (whether junks commons are worth anything or not is another story).

  4. Eventually, I will get to my Moises cards, and have no problem sending them you way. Just got to get through about 50 more stacks first. BTW, did you get my package?

    1. Sweet - Happy to take them off your hands. I haven't seen anything today, I don't anything was delivered - no bills, no ads, nothing! I'll keep an eye out for it!
