The other night I was a little bored. Sometimes when I get bored I search ebay on the lookout for some good deals. Good deals on the price baseball cards, of course. I usually buy cards that I may not be able to obtain in a trade. Even at card shows I may look for serial numbered or odd ball cards.
This time on ebay, I was also on the hunt for some vintage. My old school binge continues, my friends. I also may be going to a card show this weekend in Glendale,CA. It is supposed to be a pretty big show. That is the rumor spreading around in the under world of LA card collectors. So, the show will also yield me some old school sweetness.
Because you can't judge the entire set of '95 Ultra to '72 Topps. Topps back then had base and maybe a sub set. The newer cards have patches, autos, inserts, shine etc. So, just judging base versus base, was the 70s the best? What other decades are in the running? 60s? 90s?
The Cey is from 1974 Topps. It is not as good as '72 or '73. This may be a weak link in the 70s but it is still a very good set.
The blue border looks great on a Dodger card. Probably just about every team color has been represented by the different borders of Chrome products. This makes this card extra special to me because it is repping the shade of the Dodgers. This card is also numbered to 150. This card was cheaper than I thought it should be. As a collector of Ethier, I knew the odds of ever finding this card is kind of slim. There may be at least 100 other Dodger collectors out there who may own this and aren't giving it up. I had to pounce on a good deal like this.
Not only am I chasing some '81 Topps, but I am also after a Jeff Weaver auto. I already have an autographed photo of him and I. There must be a card out there with his signature on it. Please help out your good ol' buddy Spiegel.
Also, please let me know what decade that you think had the best base sets. I am a little curious to see what some other bloggers think about that.
