Random Vintage

I’ve randomed all my cards in my vintage collection by decade.  Here’s what popped up.

For a description of what my Vintage collection is, click here for the post.

1950’s

vintage01

Bennie Daniels – 1959 Topps

This card actually came up with the 1960’s on the last post before I realized it was from 1959. The card says rookie stars of 1959 which usually means it was printed the next year. I figured it out before I posted it though.

1960’s

vintage02

Dave Stenhouse – 1965 Topps

I always liked the 1965’s, I think I like the flag. I tend to like all the sets that they used those. I also like having a card of a team that is no longer in existence. I know they moved, but they are no longer the Washington Senators.

1970’s

vintage03

Joe Torre – 1976 Topps

This card is a little (just a tad) miscut so eventually I will replace it. I’m not a huge fan of this set, if they would have stuck with the team colors at the bottom instead of random, I think it would have been a lot better.

1980’s

vintage04

Bob Brenly, Chili Davis, Bob Tufts – 1982 Topps

This card brings back memories. I remember when it was one of the cards you wanted because it was a Chili Davis rookie card. Back in the day, I probably had 8 or 9 of those.

PC pick-ups for last week

I found out that I get 2 weeks off at the holidays.  Yeah!  The bad news is I only get my holiday pay for those 2 weeks so for 2 weeks, I’m getting very short checks.  So I have suspended my Ebaying for a couple of weeks so the posts will get smaller, if any at all.  I assume I’ll still have a few cards trickle in so there will be a post, just smaller.  I will still try to do the random vintage posts, maybe an extra 1 or 2 until the beginning of the year when I can get back into the full swing of things.

Let’s get into last week’s purchases.

Random Vintage

We’ll see how long I post these but it will be a fun post every so often.  The plan is to post a card from my vintage collection for each decade.  Of course, the 50’s will only last about 6 posts at this point because that’s all I have, but we’ll see.

All decades were randomed.

1950’s

Bill Renna – 1955 Topps

Dal Maxvill – 1971 Topps

1980’s

That was fun, but I need to take the cards out of their pages to take the photos next time.
