30-Year Old Cardboard Presents: ‘The 70’s Show’
I admit it – I have never seen a single episode of ‘That 70’s Show’. I know the basic gist of the show, and to be honest, ever since I got back into collecting I thought that the show’s title would be a great blog title as well. And while I have no intention of re-naming the world-famous ’30-YOC’ I think that this lot of cards you are about to see would have been a hit on ‘That 70’s Show’.
I picked up all of these cards from an Ebay seller that was moving hundreds of cards, all at the same time. I think I bid on +/- 35 cards that night, and now the 18 that I won have arrived.
And here they are, sorted by year of issue:
1976 Topps – Dave Concepcion, Gary Carter, Ken Griffey
1977 – Mike Schmidt, Joe Morgan, Gary Carter, Ken Griffey, George Foster, Dave Concepcion
1978 – Sparky Anderson, Rollie Fingers, Willie McCovey, George Foster
1979 – Dennis Eckersley, Dale Murphy, George Foster, Gary Carter, Dave Concepcion
Overall, I am thrilled with what I won. And while I have mixed emotions about the sellers that have multiple listings ending at the same time, when this stack of cards is what I get for my troubles, it is all worth it.
In total, I got 18 cards. I picked up a goods stack of cards honoring some of the ‘Big Red Machine’s’ finest players. And the Hall of Famers and MVP’s I nabbed are awesome additions to my collection.
Do I wish that I won a few more of the ones I missed out on? Absolutely. But the chase is also part of the fun!!!
