My goal is to collect every regular (& traded) issue Topps base card of Steve Carlton from his playing years.
Yesterday morning, I needed these six:
But after a package in the mail & a COMC purchase, my wantlist has been narrowed down to these three:
A huge thank you goes out to Markz (from Sports Card Forum). He traded me this 1969 Topps Steve Carlton...
and as an added bonus, he threw in this 1983 Topps Steve Carlton...
These two cards motivated me to head over to COMC and search for the remaining Carltons on my wantlist. I picked up this 1975 Topps Mini Steve Carlton for $2...
It won't officially be off of my wantlist until I have it in my hands... but it's one less card to worry about. Three down... three to go!
Thanks again Markz for another awesome trade... best of luck on your 1975 Topps set.
Happy Thursday everyone... and sayonara!
Oh... I almost forgot. Markz threw in another two cards:
Ai Miyazato is Japan's top female golfer (currently ranked 9th on the LPGA tour). The above card is a 2010 Sports Illustrated for Kids card. The other card is a 2000 MLB Showdown card of Masato Yoshii. Yoshii played five season in the MLB from 1998 to 2002, before heading back to Japan to play. He retired in 2007 and is currently a pitching coach for the Hokkaido Nippon Ham Fighters.
Domo arigato Markz... these will make fine additions to my Japanese Athlete PC.
