Well someone recently listed the 1981 Granny Goose #13 Dave Revering on eBay and I ended up the high bidder at $11.49.
Now you're probably scratching your head wondering why I'd pay so much for a Dave Revering. Personally... I don't blame you. Revering had a few solid seasons, but was never considered a super star. In fact, my guess is most younger collectors (twenty years or younger) have never heard of him.
But the card pictured above actually has an interesting history and is quite rare. Back in 1981, the Oakland A's traded Revering to the New York Yankees and supposedly most of the Dave Revering cards were destroyed by the company that printed these cards for Granny Goose.
Obviously a few slipped into collector's hands. And now I'm the proud owner of one, which means that my 1981 Granny Goose set is finally complete:
Another white whale has been caught.
Have you caught any white whales lately?
Happy Wednesday and sayonara!
