I made some progress on 1963 Topps, which is one of my favorites. Currently, I have 36 of the 576, and my dad has another 26, so altogether I have 11% of the set.
Though Buford isn't widely remembered, he was a highly capable leadoff man for one of the greatest dynasties of all time, the Baltimore Orioles at the start of the 1970s. He scored exactly 99 runs a year each year from 1969 to 1971, but in 1972 he hit just .206, and went to Japan after the season. He played for the Taiheiyo Club Lions and Nankai Hawks from 1973 to 1976, earning Best Nine honors in his first two years. His best year was 1975, in which he put up a slash line of .330/.430/.487.
It would be nice to get his rookie card autographed, too.
Now I can say I have one 1967 high number, as the Nye/Upham rookie card is #608, next to last in the set. $3.90 well spent, as you can't get it under $10 on COMC. It's in very nice condition.
Etchebarren has my favorite picture of the cards I got, with the unibrow and Yoohoo's sign in the background.
Ron Campbell's sunset card is another card that's overpriced on COMC, at $19.92. Sportlots doesn't have a copy at all.
And I'll close with two Yankees who had beautiful cards, even if their careers were not quite so beautiful.
Though I may have used up the inventory of my favorite seller, there are a couple of other sellers who have cards I'm interested in, so I might make another order sometime.
It's been a while since I've shared any songs, so I think I'll feature some tonight.
Ruby Falls by Guster is a great song, and I think this Line Rider track takes it to an even higher level. Line Rider is a game where you build a track for a rider to go over. Rabid Squirrel is one of the greats of Line Rider.
While I'm on the subject of Line Rider, I'll show maybe the greatest Line Rider track of all-time. Hope you enjoy these.
Mississippi John Hurt is one of my favorite bluesmen.
This is my 99th post, so my next post will be my 100th. I'm planning on posting a special card, so stay tuned.
Aaron Judge is batting for his second time as I write this. I hope he gets a hit. I was glad to see him score the first run of the game.
