Reader Gerad Offers Up A Ton Of Ozzie Smith Cards And A BIG Bonus Too!!!
Where else could a Cubs and Cardinals fan get along so well than at ’30-Year Old Cardboard’!!!
Gerad has been a loyal reader of the site for some time now and is one of the people who I trade with most often. A Cardinals fan, he has shown me the light when it comes to Bob Gibson, Lou Brock, and one of my newest collecting goals – Hall of Famer Ozzie Smith. Equally, I have turned him on to Billy Williams, Fergie Jenkins, and my personal favorite, Andre Dawson.
So, when I announced just a few short weeks ago that I wanted to build a collection honoring Ozzie Smith, Gerad posted a comment that he could help me get started.
And help, he did – just look at this stack of card featuring ‘The Wizzard’:
Impressive, huh? In total, I received 51 unique cards of Ozzie to help get my collection going.
Here are a few of the cards that stand out:
And then there was this…
WoW!!! A 1979 Topps Ozzie Smith Rookie card – This was a spectacular gift and certainly one that I did not expect. I had started shopping these around a bit and I knew that I had my work cut out for myself to try to find a nice and affordable one. Gerad solved that problem for me in a hurry!!
Thank you Gerad – your generosity is unmatched. I owe you one, two, Ok, I owe you a ton!!!! Thanks again!!!
