A Complete Set of Andre Dawson Zellers Panels!!!!

A Complete Set of Andre Dawson Zellers Panels!!!!

A while back, close to six months ago to be exact, I received  a 3-card panel of these Zellers cards featuring Andre Dawson.

Immediately intrigued by their unique design and potential rarity, I sought them out. 

And while it took much longer than what I wanted, I have finally secured the complete 9-card Zellers set – and it is in perfect condition.

Come See:

Truly old-school – and pretty rare to find in tact and in mint condition, I am thrilled to add this 9-card, 3-paneled beauty to my Andre Dawson collection!!!

‘On The Road With psugator02′ – Dolphins VS Titans – November 14, 2010

‘On The Road With psugator02′ – Dolphins VS Titans – November 14, 2010

Tennessee Titans at Miami Dolphins
postgame, 3:30-5:30 p.m.
Sunlife Stadium
Sunday, November 14

Let me just say that I’m glad I don’t graph much NFL because the crowd at this game was almost too much to overcome. But the female talent that came out made up for it. I don’t think I’ve seen that many hot women in one place in all my life.

Don Shula: 0/1 and I had him 1-on-1
Dan Fouts: 0/1…probably signed five…I had heard stories of him being cool but this guy was GRUMPY
Chris Johnson: 0/1, 0/1, 0/1…people were throwing items at him….just missed out on giving my mini to a security guard, who had been walking items over to him..probably signed 40 graphs. i was inches away from him at least three times but he wouldn’t do it
Jeff Fisher: 0/1…said he couldn’t sign but promised to do his mail
Mike Munchak: 2/2…walked off the bus and signed for everyone….of course he smeared my Goal Line Art card LOL..inscribed “HOF 2001” without being asked

Etc.: A bunch of other Titans were cool too — Kenny Britt, Michael Griffin and Donnie Nickey to name a few — but I had nothing for them. … The Wayans brothers attended the game but didn’t sign.

Jim Palmer 2010 Topps ‘History Of The World Series’

Jim Palmer 2010 Topps ‘History Of The World Series’

The Story – October 6, 1966.  It seemed Jim Palmer’s odds couldn’t have been longer when he was handed the ball to oppose the great Sandy Koufax in Game 2 of the 1966 World Series.  The intrepid 20-year old, however, dominated the Dodgers on 4 hits to become the youngest pitcher to fire a Fall Classic shutout.  Teammates followed him with two whitewashes of their own, as the Orioles swept.

1982 Donruss MVP’s Starring Vida Blue, Frank Robinson, and Joe Morgan!!!

What a fun card, huh??

On paper, the Giants were stacked with these three baseball greats on their roster in the early 1980’s.

And while neither of them earned their spot in baseball history due to their time playing for the San Francisco franchise, I have to imagine that having these three players in the clubhouse did wonders for the team’s atmosphere and attitude.

Blue became wildly popular in Oakland, Robinson with both the Reds and Orioles, and Morgan with the Reds.

All three of these men are former MVPs, with both Robinson and Morgan winning the award multiple times.

The Story:  Cleveland, Ohio.  July 2, 1988 – Indians’ Doug Jones tonight earned his 15th consecutive save in a 10-7 win vs. Mariners, a major league record.  The former standard of 13 consecutive saves was established by Phillies’ Steve Bedosoian in 1987 season.
