Check these out! Got these together for $30. I've long wanted that Ozzie RC, and this is a fine specimen (they're all notoriously off-center). And the Yaz is pretty spectacular. Don't let the Rookie star fool you, it's actually his 2nd-year card.. though he still hadn't made his major league debut by that time. See?...
Great additions to 2 of my main PCs. I got an Archives reprint of that Yaz as a surprise wedding gift last year, and so it's sort of a special card to me, and it makes it even more rewarding to have a vintage copy now.
For some reason, I chose to take these photos on my living room floor, so you may notice a fair amount of dog hair in the background.
Annie Lou! (apparently she was on the top page of Reddit today!)
Besides the Yaz and Ozzie, all the other cards I bought today were 50¢ each. These 3 cool cards are made extra cool by the fact that they're OPC. See?...
Here's some star-power. Vintage (technically speaking) Aaron, Mantle, Spahn, and Gibson/Jenkins for fiddy-cent each. Hard to beat! I looked at a beat-up '59 Mantle from another dealer today.. it was marked as $90 with a 50% off sign.. and I planned to offer the guy $40, but turns out the 50% markoff was $90. For a graded 1.5 card. No thanks.
More cards. Very happy about that Stargell! It's a great card that I've been wanting for a while now, a) because I need it for my 73 setbuild and b) I love Willie Stargell and c) it's a great early action shot.
As for the Reggie.. couldn't remember if I needed that Reggie, but if not I'll flip it on Listia or something. And as for the Red.. I appear to quietly be building a tiny-but-respectable Schoendienst PC. I already had an auto and a card from his playing days, and now I've got an early MRG card.
Fun stuff. I'll post the non-vintage stuff I picked up in a day or two. After last month's card show that left me wanting more, I left this show feeling satisfied, and it's a good feeling. I came up short in my search for a Piazza auto, but came away with a bunch of neat cards for my collection and a fair amount of trade fodder.
Thanks for clicking. Keep on rocking!
