I hit the card show last weekend, and after scooping up a few cards for my Perfect Game Project, I started scanning the binders and boxes on the dealers table for any other available gems. Here's what I came up with...
I grabbed this '72 Topps Willie Davis - without remembering I already have a copy. There's so much groovy going on in this card that I just couldn't walk away from it - well-loved or not.
I love cardboard with World Series Heroes doing World Series shite, so I jumped on these...
Brooks Robinson on Tattoine. What an image!
Everybody knows BobWalkthePlank is Pirates HQ, but there's always room in my collection for the Sarge on a great card.
I grabbed some cards to add to my "Defunct Teams" PC...
Bonus: Defunct, highly insensitive/probably racist, team logo.
Chuck Stobbs, 1955 Topps
Here's a couple of suggested taglines for the back of Stobby's card:
"Stobbs was one of baseball's first bonus babies." and "Southpaw Stobbs once had a 16-game consecutive losing streak."
Willie Davis wasn't the only Dodger I found in the binders...
I added one more card from my favorite Brooklyn southpaw, Johhny Podres.
And I grabbed this for a buck. Overpaid? Not in my mind.
Finally, this little slice o' cardboard that didn't really fit any themed page in my binders, but I hadda have it.
Monobrow stare? Check.
Funky name? Check.
Too bad ol' Zup wasn't repping a defunct team, I woulda had the trifecta.
