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.

1981 Topps–Rollie Fingers #229

I’m collecting the 1981 set, slowly but surely. This post is the latest in my quest for the completion.


  • Card Facts – Rollie Fingers – San Diego Padres – Card #229
  • Purchase Price – $0.05 (ebay lot – 100/$4.99)
  • On the back (toon, bottom left) – none
  • On the back (toon, bottom right) – none
  • Signed by the Kansas City Athletics as an amateur free agent in 1964.
  • Debut – September 15, 1968
  • 1968-1976 (A’s), 1977-1980 (Padres), 1981-1982, 1984-1985 (Brewers)

I remember Rollie more from his days with the Brewers as they were my more impressionable years.  And I remember him for the same reason most of us do, his mustache.  Oh yeah, he was a pretty good reliever as well.

  • Total price paid – $1.44
  • Average price per card – $0.08
  • Cards left to post – 709
