Baseball Card Show Purchase #2 – (4) 2008 Hall of Fame Goudeys

I like Goudey.  I like the flash back to the past.  It reminds me of the cards from the 1950’s that I used to drool over as a kid and admittedly still do today.

I snatched up these 4 cards for $1.00.  I may have been able to buy them cheaper if I had tried a little harder, but I couldn’t say no to Rollie, Reggie, Jim, and Johnny!!!

A few quick notes about each guy:

Rollie Fingers – I heard he signs TTM for a $10 fee.  Something tells me that this card would look great signed.

Reggie Jackson – The king of COOL!!  ‘Nuff said….

Jim Palmer – My second favorite pitcher from the 1970’s – right behind Fergie Jenkins.  He had an amazing string from 1973-76 – check it out!!!

Johnny Bench – My favorite catcher of all-time.  I really started to appreciate Bench when I was learning about Billy Williams and his career with the Cubs.  Bench won the MVP 2-times, beating Williams each time.  Had it not been for Bench, Williams could have been a 2-time MVP and 1st ballot Hall of Famer.  Don’t worry Johnny, we’re not mad at you!!!

Great Finds!!!

  1. I’ve met Reggie Jackson twice in the town I used to live in… both times he was a complete jerk. Once I could only talk to him in the form of a question (ummm… OK…), the other he couldn’t have been more annoyed that I made a side comment about the Yanks World Series game (can’t remember which year, exactly… I think 2001) that WAS BEING PLAYED AT THAT MOMENT!

    This guy couldn’t have cared less about the Yanks, yet he’s always first in line to parade around Yankee Stadium as a “hero”. I get that it was just a job to him, and the Yanks were just his employer, but still – can’t you humor a young kid and pretend to care (this was back when I was in high school)?
