Fergie Jenkins Discusses The Breakdown of the 1969 Cubs…

As a Cub fan, it’s painful to hear, watch, or read about the collapse of the Chicago Cubs during the 1969 season.  Imagine being in Fergie’s shoes and having to live with it….

I want to watch, but I don’t want to watch…  That damned black cat!!!

Card Show Purchase #1

Card Show Purchase #1

This card had been eluding me for a few weeks…  I hadn’t been able to find one in decent condition until I ran across it at ‘6-table guy’s’ display.

I am happy to add this card to my Billy Williams collection.  This is the first League Leader card I have with Williams and Ron Santo on it.  And having Willie McCovey round out the 3 players being featured certainly doesn’t hurt either…

My Billy Williams colletion is now up to 19 cards!!

1969 Topps RBI Leaders:

Fergie Jenkins Collection Adds a Few More Friends

I was able to pick up 2 more cards for my collection today.  Check them out…

A 1970 Topps  – ’69 National League Strikeout Leaders card with Fergie Jenkins, Bob Gibson, and Bill Singer.  I love these old League Leader cards and to have one with 2 of the most dominant pitchers of all time on it is a nice addition to my collection.

A 1972 Topps – ’71 National League Strikeout Leaders card with Tom Seaver, Fergie Jenkins, and Bill Stoneman.  Another great looking card with 2 HOF pitchers that dominated the 70’s.
