...Cool, indeed. I don't have many of these kooky Emotion cards, but this is a welcome addition to the Crime Dog PC.
I only really started collecting Jim Thome like a year ago, so I don't have that many of his cards. Great to bulk up the PC a bit with 6 cards that ran me under a quarter combined.
Grouping this pair of Auburn standouts together. A trio of Big Hurts and a couple Bo oddballs ("Boddballs?").
A couple Conforto cards from 2017 Update.
Klesko gold parallel, Julio Franco LL, and former community college classmate of mine, Mike Jacobs.
I've been thinkin' 'bout
Thinkin' 'bout sets
Always hungry for somethin'
That I haven't completed yet
Being right on the cusp of completing '80 Topps and '83 Topps (and '84 Fleer), I'm thinking about future setbuilds, and while '74 Topps isn't at the top of my list, it's scratching at my "maybe someday" list (with a broad '73 thru '85 Topps run in the back of my mind). So I couldn't resist nabbing a nice little lot for the cost of a pack of gum, as I'm quietly building a little starter stack in anticipation of one day going after the set.
Well, that pretty much wraps up the nickelbox dig, with a few additional cards not pictured because they're already set aside for trader buds.
Thanks for reading.
Yeah, nickel boxes are da bomb! BOOM, bang.... POP, plewwwwwhhuhReplyDelete
Thanks for the fun read! I love those looking for that stuff too...ReplyDelete
Lots of great 90's finds. When u can find any inserts from the 90s for nickel it's a win to meReplyDelete
Emotion! Good set.ReplyDelete
Daaaannngg. Nice haul. Someday you will have to teach me how to walk away from a nickelbox after only spending $2.ReplyDelete
Those 1974's are in beautiful condition!ReplyDelete
Hard to resist a good nickel box! Always happy to see Micah Owings make a blog appearance (dude was the best-hitting pitcher I've seen in my lifetime). I'm hoping my nickel box guy is at the show I'll be attending this weekend.ReplyDelete
It's a shame he was so bad at pitching. 😑Delete
