Hey, Everybody! Look At What I'd Rather Have Than Money! (Part 1/2)

That is to say, I made a meager purchase from COMC a bit ago. And I scanned the cards. And here are half of em.

1964 Topps Pete Rose. I already gave this card its due with its own post. But it was part of the mailday, so you are privileged enough to see it again.

1977 Burger Chef Discs Ken Griffey, Dan Driessen. These are much smaller than the 70's discs I'm used to; only two and a half inches across or so. We all know the backs are more interesting than the fronts, so here ya go...

Come on, Burgerini. Get it together, man.

1972 Topps Julian Javier. This is one of them high-number cards. #745, to be precise. Sweet.

1979 TCMA Renata Glasso Johnny Vander Meer. Nothin' much to this set. But I'll take a cheap vintage Vander Meer always.
1972 Kellogg's 3-D Lee May. Noice.

1955 Bowman Gus Bell. A tough high number from the set. Did I notice someone wrote "Black Dick (something)" on this card in pencil when I bought it? Why no. No I did not. But here we are.

And we'll close it out today with, ahem, MINIIIIIIS. 1975 Topps Mini Ed Armbrister RC, Will McEnaney. No, no, no, that is not a Fred Lynn RC. That is an Ed Armbrister RC. True.

Back half tomorrow, kiddies. Go Reds.


  1. Hey I just learned about that Glasso set yesterday and here you are posting a card from it. I feel all knowledgeable and stuff.

    1. I was unaware of it until I saw this card in the search results.

  2. I think I need to find one of those Burger Chef disks

  3. The burger chef discs are pretty cool. I have an uncut box that has all ten sox discs on it. It came with there version of the fun meal. I think it was some kind of game you could play

    1. Nice. I think an uncut box with the entire Big Red Machine on it would fetch some serious coin.
