This trade post is waaaaay overdue, as these came in sometime in March from good ol’ P-Town Tom of Waiting ’til Next Year. As you can see, Don Larsen isn’t too thrilled about his time in the draft folder. What a card! I’ll trade a bunch of ’84 Topps away for a nice piece of vintage any day. Thanks Tom!
There were many more ‘Stros in the package as well, with some nice Altuves leading the way. The Bowman rookie is a really nice addition, and I do believe that’s a Chrome refractor on the right. Super!
I love adding Ripken cards. After Bagwell, Nolan, and Biggio, Cal ranks fourth among my collecting leaderboard. Bagwell sits well over 800 now, and Nolan’s 300 and change are padded by the 110 card ’91 Pacific set. Biggio is near 150 I believe, and Cal is around 120. I’ve contemplated building that ’95 Leaf set so many times that I’m sure it’s destined to happen someday. I just need to complete a few others first.
Last and certainly not least, Tom sent along a delightful Bagwell jersey card. I’ll have to do a count of how many relics I have of his sometime soon, but I’ve got everything from jerseys to bats to bases to baseballs to dirt. Yup, dirt.
Tom, thanks so much for the trade! Sorry it took me so long to post.
