Since the current highest number I have for this ongoing frankenset is 721, I figure that with this group and the previous two, Jim has now contributed to 1/7th of this set build so far.
This lot was a bit different than the previous two, in that it contained a quite a few players of note, which meant this post took a little longer to put together (not that I'm complaining) than the last two.
Tim Foli was the number one pick in the 1968 draft, and played a major role in Pittsburgh's '79 championship.
I think by now everybody knows the story of the 1970 No-hitter thrown by Dock Ellis, while under the influence of LSD (not to mention the laundry list of other incidents that he was involved in). On a bit of a side note, I finally saw No No: A Dockumentary a few months back, and I must admit I was somewhat disappointed with it. Don't get me wrong, it's not that I thought it was terrible, it just didn't seem to be as good as everyone was making it to be at the time of it's release.
Cesar Geronimo had the great fortune (or misfortune) to be the 3,000th strikeout victim of both Bob Gibson and Nolan Ryan.
This batch also gave me four more cards in the 600's, which is really nice, since I had only one previously.
Jim, thank you for sending another great group of cards. And you will be happy to know that at the card show I attended last weekend (see next post), I came across a bit of a Dodgers mother lode, some of which will be headed your way in a couple of days.
Thanks for taking a moment to look at my page.
