COMC COMA - Part 2

Part 1 yesterday. Part 2 right now.

1980 Fleer Sticker '76 World Series. Look at this card. Just look at it. It's perfect. It's my new favorite card.

1984 Slurppe Discs. Pete Rose is one of the three on here. See him? He's right there. The other two are Hall of Famer Fergie Jenkins and Carlton Fisk. But who cares, right? It's Petey!

One cheapo autograph. Chad Mottola played 35 of his lifetime 59 games for the Reds. I now have my in-person auto of Mottola and an official one. My Mottola auto collection is officially complete.

Look at all this tremendous O-Pee-Chee. Will I ever complete the vintage OPC Reds run? Probably not. But I'll try, dammit. I'll try.

Dave Concepcion RC. Sweet, right?

Dave Concepcion OPC RC? Even sweeter. Love this. So much.

Final Part tomorrow. Opening Day is creeping up, kids. Here's my hot take: My Reds will NOT lose 100 games. Lock it up. Go Reds.


  1. Your o pee chee collection has got to be over half way there

    1. You inspired me to check:
      1960's: 4/54 = 7%
      1970's: 158/277 = 57%
      1980's: 94/142 = 66%
      1990's: 28/93 = 30%
      Overall: 284/566 = 50.2%

      So, yeah, you pretty much nailed it. Lots of work to do still.

    2. I'm down to one card 71 Yaz.
