This package turned out to be pretty darn good, numbers wise. Out of the 30 that were sent, 26 ended up being new numbers for my rapidly growing frankenset.
I don't think these will require any more buildup, so here we go:
One card from this group contained a very interesting piece of trivia that was sure to impress your friends and family...
...which is, that in 1973, Fred Norman was a bachelor! Wow, Thanks
I know one thing though, if I was cartoon Fred Norman, I certainly wouldn't be running away from cartoon raven haired beauty.
Let us continue:
I think that Darrell Evans is now the only player who is represented twice in my set.
That '85 Oester is now the second card I have from this year's buybacks where the stamp is completely obscuring the player's face. It would be nice if Topps would try a little harder in the future to make sure that the stamp machine doesn't create so many cards featuring faceless entities.
Thanks again, Jim! With your contribution of over fifty cards now, you are by far the biggest reason that this set is getting built as quickly as it is.
With summer officially starting today (although we have been having summer-y weather here for over two months now), I can think of no better song to celebrate the start of the solstice than this:
Thanks for taking a moment to look at my page.
