Okay, so I mentioned that I pulled a bunch of MCG redemptions (11 to be exact) over the weekend, and had gotten some good stuff. Let’s review what I pulled:
- Bob Turley 1954 (Orioles)
- Phil Clark 1958 (Cards)
- Dick Gernert 1958 (Red Sox)
- Charley Rabe 1958 (Reds)
- Ray Moore 1963 (Twins)
- Dick Bertell 1963 (Cubs)
- Jose Vidal 1969 (Pilots)
- Alan Trammell 1982 (Tigers)
- Javy Lopez 1996 (Braves)
- Mark Teixeira 2006 (Rangers)
I set about trading for Senators, Expos, and Nationals. Here’s what that has become, not including the 68 card I showed the other day.
I dealt the 54 and got a 54 Senators card in return, but someone offered me four mid-50s and early-60s card for it, so I bit; that’s one situation where I’ll accept a lot of cards for one. I flipped one of those mid-50s cards for a 60 Malkmus, and someone traded me this for that.
My first 1960 card! Very excited to take delivery of this one.
This one is still out there and available…trying hard to deal this for a 61 Senators card, but no dice so far.
Okay how cool is this? I manage to get my first 1962 cards (a set I’ve long drooled over), and one of them is none other than Jim Piersall. And check out that sweet shot on the Daniels card. Can’t wait to get that one.
I love when I can trace a player’s career with the Senators, and I saw a chance to do that with Daniels. This will also be my first 63 card.
I wanted to have at least one card with that sweet All Star Rookie trophy, and this was my chance (heh).
I’m closing in on completing the 66 Team Set. This is one more card toward that goal.
For whatever reason, the large picture of this is not working on the site, but another addition to my growing 1970 collection.
Just a great card.
Hoping to eventually turn this into an Expo.
And the 2006 Teixeira is untraded. That’s going to be an albatross, I can tell.
