Baseball Cards


Recommended Posts

I have two George Brett rookie cards....mini and full size. The mini one was generously gifted to me by a person on this site 20 years ago who went by the name "Buck". I have hundreds of GB cards but those two are my favorite along with the Bird rookie card.

I love that gum!  So hard it would cut the inside of your mouth.

Big League Chew was the stuff.  But that was out of our price range, so we got stuck with Bubbalicious or something like that.

To boot this card was of the last series of Topps 1970 (7th) when there were less prints. I remember kids would collect cards all year, ex series 1-5 or 6 as they came out respectively, then the last series  came out always much later, ex August/Sept and NOT dispersed nearly as much and so many kids/collectors would get upset. Then you had to find these lesser printed cards to complete a set somehow (maybe go to a card show) only to pay $1 even for a common player because of the scarcity!

The reason there were less of the last series or two is because no one hardly bought them.  By that time of the year, it had turned to football season and all the kids were buying football cards instead of baseball cards.
