Throwback Thursday: Galasso Greats series 1

I have exactly half of the 270 card set that ran from 1977-1984. I have 1-135. Over the next few weeks I'll show those 3 sets. They are plain, but I like them, has that 60's Leaf, Golden Press appeal, heck looks like them on the front anyway.

Series 1: Released in 1977:

Keeping these as a set was a tough choice for me, as nearly every player belongs in my PC.

Fortunately the singles show up in dime and quarter boxes often.

That works for me and my minty mint set can stay together, well the half that I have.

I do hope to complete the last 3 sets, but not at the prices I see online.

No, I will wait until I see one for $5.00 or close to it at a show someday.

Hope you enjoyed.


  1. I had this in my cart on ebay a few weeks ago and it disappeared. Someone had bought it. Hmmmmm.

  2. Such a simple design really puts a focus on those great photos!

  3. Great looking cards. I was first drawn to these a few years ago after seeing that Jackie Robinson on a blog. Crossed that card off the list awhile back. Looks like I'm gonna start hunting down that Ted Williams next.

  4. i love these cards. I have series one but it's still sealed. Guess I need to get it paged! Musial, Banks - what great shots!
