First, The Oldie Moldies:
1967 Topps Dave Morehead
Every card I bought, I bought with a purpose. For example, if I already had this card (I neglected to bring my lists), I can easily flip it to some Sox fan. Besides, everyone wants mor- no. No, I'm not making that joke. Not gonna do it. Nope. Sorry, internet. I just can't do it.
1967 Cap Peterson
I pretty much got this because Cap isn't wearing one. Probably the most sound reasoning out of the bunch actually.
1969 Tony Oliva Checklist
You just can't pass up Tony Oliva on an unchecked high series checklist. You just can't, even if the bottom right corner is a little oogy. There were two of these in the box and I just found out there's a back variation. Now I have to go back and see if they have the variation card too.
1971 AL RBI Leaders
1978 Steve Garvey
I really like this set, I really like the All Star Shields on this set and I really like Steve Garvey for telling Eric Gregg where to go during that Braves-Padres game I watched when I was a kid so long ago.
And new, the newfangled crap:
Four Topps206 Short Prints
Can you believe I already have all four of these?? Luckily Cardinals, Red Sox and Orioles are not difficult to find homes for and these have already been put in various outgoing piles.
2008 Timelines David Wright
My quest for this set is slow but steady. Now is the time where I check my binder to see if I need this card. Drumroll, please.....
Nope, got it. there's one more card in an outgoing pile. (shoulda brought my lists!)
2006 Allen & Ginter Bob Gibson
I'll take any Bob Gibson card I can get my hands on because he was a Brave. Yep, Bob was the pitching coach for the Joe Torre Braves of the early '80s. Bet you didn't know that, eh?
2006 Allen & Ginter Napoleon Lajoie
This one I knew I didn't have. I was absolutely positive. Then I opened my binder and Nap was staring at me, menacingly. ALWAYS BRING YOUR LISTS.
2010 Heritage New Age Performers Zach Greinke
This one I didn't have! HA! Therin lies the beauty of buying brand new product. No doubles. At least until I start ripping blasters and I get two or three of this puppy.
Then & Now Whitey Ford & Friends
Greinke makes a second appearance as does Justin Verlander.
Baseball Flashback Luis Aparicio
Leapin' Little Luis! this is the only newfangled card that can even show its face to that '71 Leaders card. This might be the best photo in the entire Heritage set.
