Unlike most of the 1980’s pick-ups, most of these were bought specifically for the Vintage collection. Mainly because they were in $.20 binders. I pretty much grabbed all vintage in those binders but oddly enough, they were mostly better cards and players.
Do you see those awesome 1978 cards? All of those for $1. Look at the names, Jim Palmer, Gary Carter, Steve Carlton, Willie McCovey and Andre Dawson. I don’t think I could have passed these up at $.20 even if I didn’t have the vintage collection to put them in. These 5 1978 Topps put me at 45 cards for the set.
A leaders card, but it has Reggie Jackson on it. This card puts my 1976 Topps set at 127 cards.
Obviously, the first 2 were picked up for the White Sox collection but I already had them. The Los Angeles Dodgers rookies card on the other hand was picked up for the 1972 set. It’s a Charlie Hough rookie, at least according to the card. I don’t know if he was featured in the 1971 set or not.
These were also picked up for other collections but I already had them. The Pat Kelly I had actually grabbed 2 of them when I bought it, on accident, but it works for me.
Next up, yes, I even got some 1960’s for the vintage collection.
