Sometimes Retired refractors pop up on eBay at a very fair Buy-It-Now price but I miss them before they're snatched up and it makes me very sad. (This happened with a Lou Whitaker just the other day.) But sometimes I luck into snatching one of them myself, like this Juan Marichal.
Don Zimmer here wasn't as good of a deal as the Dominican Dandy, but I've always had a soft spot for The Gerbil, so I pulled the trigger.
Brett Butler here gives us a loose theme for the trio: all the guys in this post played for the Dodgers at some point.
Lots of red stats on the back. Hell, put him in the Hall! ;P
You might think I'm at a good place with this set, but I still have 54 autographs from 2005 Topps Retired left to track down. My "set" in the works includes a mix of refractors, base autos, and one autographed printing plate.
Just a quick post for today. Thanks for stopping by!
