Reader Gerad Sends Over Some Great Vintage Beauties From The 1960s & 1970s
Holy Cow, talk about some vintage goodies!!
I recently received a very generous package from one of the loyal readers of ’30-YOC’. Gerad really hooked me up this time – 6 pieces of beautiful, vintage cardboard.
Let’s get right into it, shall we?
On to the cards!!!
Card #1 – 1964 Topps All-Star Vets w/Nellie Fox & Harmon Killebrew
Card #2 – 1968 Topps, ’67 Batting Leaders w/Yastrzemski, Robinson, and Kaline
Card #3 – 1970 Topps, ’69 American League Batting Leaders w/Carew, Smith, and Oliva
Card #4 – 1970 Topps Willie McCovey
Card #5 – 1971 Topps Jim ‘Catfish’ Hunter
Card #6 – 1972 Topps Frank Robinson
Man, I don’t even know what to say. Simply, great, great stuff!!
- The card from the 1970 Topps that features Rod Carew fills a huge hole in my Carew PC.
- And the base cards of McCovey and Robinson from the 1970 and 1972 Topps sets are simply awesome.
- And then there is the ‘Catfish’ Hunter card – WHEW!! Gerad and I talk a lot through email, and we regularly discuss baseball dynasties. Hunter is part of one of my favorites – the A’s teams from the ’71,’72, and ’73 seasons.
- That card from the 1964 Topps set that features Fox and Killebrew instantly becomes one of the oldest cards in my collection.
A huge ‘Thank You’ goes out to Gerad. Thank you for the sending over a true ‘Blast From The Past’!!!
