As all of you know, and have been posting about, COMC had their annual Black Friday weekend sale. Free shipping, plus all the dealers mark their stuff down. Clearly, I had to take advantage. I still had my usual goal of $30 spent ($30.76 this time).
1972 Topps Pete Rose. Any vintage Petey is a solid pickup. This is from the semi-high number 5th series (#559) so it has been mostly inaccessible. Or at least I just never wanted to drop the bucks. But at $6.75, I pounced. By far the priciest card of the pickup. I'm only missing 4 from the beastly 35 card Reds set: The Rose In Action and 3 from the nutso 6th series. Not bad.
Five pickups from 1971 O-Pee-Chee. All super cheap. The regular Topps version of the World Series card made a nice splash in The Ridiculous Tournament.
Another O-Pee-Chee from way back when. 1970 Home Run Leaders, delightfully loved. Hall of Famers Hank Aaron and Willie McCovey make an appearance, but this is still a Lee May card. Chalk it up.
A single 1975 Topps mini. Tom Hall. I have 8 from this set. It's not a priority, but I'd like to make some better headway on these.
And closing out Part 1 is a 1957 Topps Don Gross in a textbook Topps Vintage Pitcher Pose. Nice.
Part 2 coming soon to an inbox near you. Go Reds.
