And since I only had two or three dollars a week to spend on cards when I was nine years old, my collection started to fill with 1993 Fleer and 1991 Topps, rather than rare items from 1962.
Anyway, the featured highlights from the thousandth-post contest at Dime Boxes consisted primarily of vintage goodies, significantly increasing my collection of older cards. Let's take a look at what Nick sent my way.
Who better to start with than The Mad Hungarian?
|1974 Topps #108 Al Hrabosky|
Here's Harmon Killebrew, the player whom the current MLB logo is allegedly modeled after. This one is in particularly good shape. Nice bat-barrel shot, too.
|1972 Topps #51 Harmon Killebrew|
|1969 Topps #209 Larry Haney|
|1977 Topps #610 Jose Cardenal|
|1980 Topps #405 Dwight Evans|
And last, a card I actually had a copy of already, surprisingly enough. I guess it's not an acquisition of new baseball cards without some duplicates in the mix. This one of "Spaceman" Bill Lee is available for trade.
|1979 Topps #455 Bill Lee|
Next time, some of the newer stuff.
