About a couple weeks ago, I headed over to the Rose Bowl Swap Meet. My sister had a booth there and I wanted to go to check out some sports memorabilia. The swap meet always has some random sports items for sale as well as some baseball cards.
There wasn't many people there that day. The crowd was abnormally slim especially with the December holidays right around the corner. That was bad for my sister and the other vendors. But, it was good for the consumer with less competition when negotiating on the price.
I was needing a 1975 Topps Bill Russell for my Dodgers team set. I recently printed out the checklist for all the 70s Topps Dodger cards. Just seeing the whole list made me realize what a tough task collecting all of them will be. I am going to try and stockpile Dodger cards from this era whenever I get the chance.
Besides building 70s Topps Dodger team sets, another newer PC for me is vintage cards of dudes in the hall of fame. This card fits nicely. If you dig around for cards enough, your able to find some cool vintage cards featuring legends at a good price.
One more thing on this Pee Wee Reese, the back of this card refers tom him as the "Little Colonel." Did you guys know he went by that nickname?
Someday I am going to count and catalog all my Eric Karros cards. He played in the 90s and was on millions of baseball cards. Karros may be in the top five for me as far as most cards owned by a single player.
