Back with another binder page ready to go!
Why Purchased: An entire page of almost vintage stars of the day and Hall of Famers, duh.
Keepers: Definitely Andre Dawson and maybe Kingman/Gorman Thomas (though I will part with it for the right offer).
Notes: The negativity and/or wangst of Mets twitterers make it seem like they haven’t won a game at all this year, but… well, okay they are tied for the second worst record in the NL (at 12-18), but that’s only 6 games under .500 right now. To read twitter makes it sound like they’ve already been mathematically eliminated from pennant contention though. That’s Cubbie territory, dammit! Quit stealing our gimmick!
Wait, no. Actually, y’all can have it. I refuse to be a negative bum, wallowing in mediocrity and negativity. I want a f***ing winner, dammit! (Gee, I sure do rant a lot these days…)
Not a whole lot of star power on that Home Run Leaders card huh? At least not these days. They are both kinda forgotten.
Also, I keep having to remind myself that the Brewers used to be in the American League.
Another rookie of a non-Hall of Famer that was a star of his day.
The Lou Brock reminds me that cards of him in a Cubs uniform just upset me…
Mind-Blowing Statistics: Nothing much coming to mind, so we’ll go with Lou & Yaz both getting their 3000th hit in 1979 I guess.
Thanks for reading!
Dale Murphy should probably be a Hall of Famer…
