This blog is about sports cards. I tend to only purchase cheap items so don't come hear expecting to see big money cards. My teams collections are Chicago White Sox and Michigan Wolverines. I also have a bunch of player collections.

  • On the back (toon) – Terry likes to go skiing.
    • “One of Terry’s most impressive efforts of 1972 occurred in Cleveland, July 11th.  He relieved Rich Gossage with one out in the 7th inning and hurled the final 2 2/3 innings of the game.  He was credited with his 12th save of the season, protecting Chisox’ 4-3 victory which was credited to Gossage.  Terry had his best curveball of the season that game, he allowed Tribe only one hit and fanned three in his short stint.”
