Never heard of this guy before I brought the card home. At least I don't remember hearing of him.

A nice high number for the Braves team sets.
This one I have no idea how I didn't have one already...........
So I grabbed a few of them. I need one for the team (done), need one for the set build (done), one for the AAron PC (done). I also need one for the Mantle PC which I may or may not have grabbed one for that too.
1950 Bowman Sam Jethroe RC! There are 2 versions of this card, one with the copyright and one without. This one is without. It is creased and scuffed but I don't care.
A couple of 1951 Bowman's I needed.
A little of everything here including a 1962 Topps stamp. I'm not sure what that laminated Rico Carty is. I meant to scan the back. I also grabbed a Killebrew which you can see on another day and I scanned the back on that one.
Several more that I don't know why I didn't have them already. No, not the 1960 Leaf I knew I didn't have them. What is cool about that pair is that there are 2 versions which neither of these are the variation. More interesting is that these are the only 2 Braves that have the variation (close up head shot). Joe Jay is sporting a crease, but hey having a card is better than not having one.
My first 2017 Archives card (Ruiz). There was a time when I had the complete 45 card set of The Big Show and the complete World Headquarters parallel.
And finishing off the Braves is this.......
I'm really not sure what this is or rather if it is real. The pin/button was attached to the card. But hey it was new to me.
That wraps up round 1 of this months "regular" card show.
