I did do some major additions. Not by and HUGE names or anything (or did I), but sheer VINTAGE.
There's a HOFer right smack in the center. Also Davey Johnson is one of my girls Birthday guys too. So go figure I still need 2 more of that one because of the set build.
A lot more recognizable names here. Notice the "Washington" on Grubb and Jones. Yeah. It is really too bad Topps didn't Cup up every year and for every player a problem they still have issues with in modern days.
Okay a couple of HUGE names here. I have no idea why Ripken was elected to the team in 1982 and in 1983. I always said HA, that will be one I don't get, but I caved.
That is it for the Cups, next time you check out my wants for them they are running slim. I actually may get it all caught up before the year's end, but that is not a goal or anything.
Have a great night.
I love vintage for many reasons, one of the biggest of which are those giant Rookie Cups. Love the '67 Hundley in particular, I'd somehow never seen that one before. (And I just got a COMC order in the mail today as well!)ReplyDelete
Yeah, Topps uses that big sucker on it's Heritage cards when it should be using it on it's flagship.Delete
I will always be grateful I was collecting in 1982 when I pulled both the base set Bonner-Ripken-Schneider card and ordered the '82 Traded set through the mail that included the first solo Ripken. ... Saved me a lot of heartache later.ReplyDelete
Your breaking my heart, I still need 3 of the Ripken Traded.Delete
Randy Jones "Washington" rookie card. Nice.ReplyDelete
