The PC trip cards

Okay.....Finally, made it to the cards sitting in boxes (now) waiting to be checked against the needs list for each of the players. I'm only 2 years behind in updating those already. I have a dozen monster boxes with cards somewhat sorted by groups: IE a-f, and g-l, kq, r-z. Something like that anyways. Then I need to take the few monster boxes that haven't been sorted that way before I can start to actually sort the individual players, and then one by one, check excel.  LOL Am I nuts, wait don't answer that. Rather, look at some goodies. This is PHASE I part 1 (there will be 2 parts/posts).

Some of these PC guys, don't have binders which means I proably haven't made a list of what I have of them yet and they are in a monster box all to them selves.

Oh look, another 1966 Topps Mickey Mantle, yeah me. I now have one for the PC too!

This is the 2nd time you have seen many of these cards (from the set builds), and a lot of them will be seen again in PHASE II of the PC post from the "trip".  That will close out the run and the contest too.

Can't have too many of thees leaders cards. I hate to love them.

See what I mean?  Take for instance the Pitching Leaders card in the center: I need a total of 6 of those. 1 for the team set (Neikro), 1 for the set build, and 1 each of those 4 PC guys.

Reggie had a rough go, and Kaline & Carlton must have had a late night too. Nice Fisk RC so to speak.

A nice batch of 72's. if only they were as nice as that box I grabbed back in September.

Looks like Mays may have been hanging out with the earlier Reggie (71). Thats about the halfway point, so this is the end of part 1. I will finish this grouping off tomorrow.

Have a GREAT weekend!


  1. Wow, some quality cardboard there!

  2. Overall this a pretty impressive group, that '67 Clemente looks like it's in amazing condition.

  3. Gee whiz, man, you're going to have every vintage card in the world.

    1. Remember these are all duplicates (keepers for the PC), as I have them in the set build already. Wait til PHASE II....

    2. Of course, I have no idea if they are already in there too.

  4. So many great cards to comment on. Today I'll pick the 1971 Nolan Ryan. I love the photo Topps picked for that card.

  5. This post was like looking at a baseball card history book.
