A Buncha Cards From Night Owl, Part Two

Aloha, everybody, 

Welcome to Part Two of the (very small sampling) from the box o' cards that my pal, Sir Night Owl sent me. Let's begin...

There are only two former Dodger managers worthy of a place in my collection. Walter Alston, who's cards I rarely come across, and good ol' Tommy, who's cards show up often - thankfully. 

That's a Topps Museum Canvas Collection card. These were seeded one per box. Nice. 

I never turned on Zack Greinke like some Dodger fans did when he left LA for more money. I remembered that's why he came to LA in the first place. I accepted he's a mercenary, and I'm glad he had this scoreless innings streak while wearing LA blue. 

Topps Heritage shiny card, numbered 631/1962 

Followed by a beautiful Kenta Maeda game face RC. 

You know a buncha cards from N.O. is going to have some vintage in it. My first Scratch Off card tells me Claude was team captain. 

Here's 1960 Topps Larry Sherry. I need his brother Norm, but he's a high number (#529), so it appears Larry will be lonely for a bit. 

How about those rooftops behind Larry. Looks like this was shot in somebody's back yard. 

World Series hero Charlie Neal is my fourth Post Dodger. Time to start collecting more of these. 

Isn't that a crazy thing about our hobby? Having one or two of a set or subset is cool and all, and then someone sends you a couple more. That's great and all, but now you're at half a binder page. That's gotta be fixed, and soon you're off on another chase. Citizens would never understand it. I love it. 

Here are a few Brooklyn tribute cards. I've got a few reprints of this 1952 Topps Pee Wee Reese, but this Archives Reserve is NEW for me! 

Some cool Upper Deck issues from The Legends of New York. Of course, I now have enough of these to check and see how many more I need to complete the Brooklyn part of the set. 

Leo the Lip, The Man and Pee Wee again. 

Here's a nice framed Duke...

 Also time to check how many of these Jackie Robinson Story cards I need to complete the set...

I super dig this fold out of the Straw. Looks like a normal, semi-boring card at first...

And then, fold it out - BOOM! A very cool shot of long and lean Darryl fighting off fans to make a catch at the stands. 

Finally, the man who more or less prompted this trade...

In some comment conversation on someone's blog a while back, N.O. mentioned he had "an extra" Ron Cey autograph lying around. Well, that got my Penguin senses tingling, and I immediately let him know I could give a loving home to an extra card. 

Good ol' Night Owl dropped this baby in the box to make it complete. What a beauty...

Whew! How about that buncha scans. Pretty good, right? 

Thanks so much, Night Owl. I'll dig into my archives and find some cool Dodger Stadium things to send your way. 



  1. Very cool, kind of rare to see a blogger send another blogger a certified autograph of their key PC guy. But that's the awesomeness of this community.

    If you ever decide that that Kuroda needs a new home, I know someone...

    1. I wanna be awesome too! So I'll enjoy Hiroki for a few more days, and then send it off to you :)

  2. That is a pretty great group of cards. The Lasorda Canvas Collection is really neat, especially since I have never seen those before.

    1. Same here. never seen them before. It's a great textured card in hand.

  3. You're quite welcome. Hope I always have Dodgers for ya.

  4. Greg is uber generous! that is a sweet auto! Maeda is looking pretty intense on Platinum!!
