I’m collecting the 1981 set, slowly but surely. This post is the latest in my quest for the completion.
- Card Facts – Vance Law, Tony Pena, Pascual Perez – Pittsburgh Pirates – Card #551
- Purchase Price – free (Trade with “JABO’s”)
This seems like this would be a pretty decent card. I want to say all 3 players had decent careers. Tony Pena, I think, had the better career. I know he was with the Pirates for awhile, I vagually remember him with the Cardinals and Indians as well. Vance bounced around a bit, I know he played for the Sox for a few years in the early to mid 80’s. I picture Perez in a Braves uniform.
- Card Facts – Vida Blue – San Francisco Giants – Card #310
- Purchase Price – $.05 (Ebay lot 100/$4.99)
Vida Blue I definitely remember. I had a player collection of him. He was a great pitcher in his day, but I remember him more from his Oakland A’s days.
- Cards posted in this set – 40
- Total price paid – $1.84
- Average price per card – $0.05
- Cards left to post – 686
- Percentage posted – 40/726 (6% posted)
- Percentage completed – 426/726 (59% completed)
One more free card should put me under $.05 on price per card. Unless I happen to random up a star that I paid a little bit more for. There are a few of those in this set that I purchased. But I paid less than $.50 for those cards as well.
