Yeah, I got nuthin’. Super tired and the jackass that lives above me has been stomping around like the asshole they are for at least an hour (it is 7:39am as I write these very words). Not acceptable. So just enjoy the Koos and try to ignore the loud violence I’ll be inflicting on my upstairs neighbor just offscreen. Thx.
Now we segue out of vintage with a little last hurrah and into something a little… smaller, with this here quickie post.
Ah, wonderful affordable vintage. I am slowly putting together this set. I believe this brings me to five now, with Kessinger and Santo. It’s a good one to collect if you aren’t concerned about condition. Even the best players won’t set you back that much, and there are lots of big names of the day and Hall of Famers to be had. The set is only 33 cards (plus a couple different player-same card number variations, proving topps has been pulling that s*** since at least the late-1960s!), so there isn’t a lot to track down.
Not quite minis in an official sense, but the slightly smaller than average size makes for a handy transition to the minis portion of our program, which we will start to cover in the next Check Out My Cards post.
PS: Still no winner in the contest yet. Go down a few posts and keep guessing!
Until our next…
