Hello all. Tis I… back once again with the third of a dozen binder pages full of goodies (and other things) I picked up from the card guy at the flea market over the past weekend.
Why Purchased: The beat up Bears Team Leaders, Future Stars Hamilton/Crawford.
Keepers: At least one of the Bears Team Leaders.
Notes: The Hamilton/Crawford is the actual card, not the Yo Momma version, which I also have in original back form.
Also, the reprint is somehow apparently worth more? Lolwut?
I like the design on the Post Tony Gwynn a lot. Who says a promotional product tie-in cards can’t look nice?
Mind-Blowing Statistics: The reprint is worth more… Oh wait, I can do better than that.
James Scott’s 759 receiving yards in 1978 is the third highest single season total posted by a Bear in the 1970s. Only his previous season’s 809, and Dick Gordon’s 1026 in 1970 are better. On a related note, I’d like to nominate Bobby Douglass as the worst QB in the HISTORY of the NFL. Ho. Lee. CRAP! How can you be THAT bad and get significant playing time off & on for an entire decade?! Yeesh… Andre Ware and Ryan Leaf, eat your hearts out.
