Saturday = Card Show Day

 I hit up the smaller card show this weekend and found some fun vintage
Still working on a 1959 Reds Team Set - the Cub Dale Long is a double (need to update my list!), so I will be sending that one out to someone. 
 A couple more from 1961, the Reds card has some wax on the front, I will try to safely remove it at some point.
A nice 1957! Snyder is on my Arbitrary 8 list, so I will update that soon as well. 
 These two are sporting Commemorative Patches - looks like a World's Fair patch on Gehrig and Mr. Cub is celebrating the state of Illinois - that patch doesn't come up often as it was worn during the time that Topps was recycling all their photos from the past on the 1969 set.
Whoa trippy 90S inserts!

For kicks I picked up a couple packs of Terminator 2 cards. They are stupid. I like them a lot.

    1. I don't recall exactly when he got rid of it, but he had the old push broom on his face in Pittsburgh, but not for long in San Francisco.

  7. I was intrigued by the fact that Topps included Bob Taylor's nickname, "Hawk". As is often the case it's worth looking into his career,

  9. T2 was such an awesome movie. The cards weren't that great... but the movie itself is one of the best sequels of all-time.
