(Ed. Note: Pardon my tardiness, but I’ve just not been able to get into any sort of regular posting rhythm.)
Some of you may recall that a while back I made a pretty significant score at a garage sale, which netted me a lovely little stack of ’64 Topps, in addition to nearly complete sets of ’74 and ’81 Topps, half a set of ’84 Topps, and stacks of ’72, ’73, and ’79 to boot.
Some of the goodies included were from 1967 Topps, which has been a section of the Astros card canon that has been lacking in my collection. I was pretty excited to see these beauties show up in the package.
I really do love trades where I have no idea what I’m getting in return, and I’m pretty sure that outside of set-building, most of you do as well. I’m hoping to up my trading game a bit here in the future, so hopefully there will be some more of this happening sooner rather than later.
And finally, he decided to pad the package with some serially numbered Astros as a delightful bonus. This numbered Sweet Spot just happens to be a Bagwell I needed, so I was quite happy to find that. (Here’s a hint, too: when it comes to Bagwell, there’s a really good chance I need it if the card is from 2004 3 onward.)
