In the meantime, I'd though I'd share two other memorabilia cards I stumbled across while putting together my Day 28 (Favorite Relic/Manufactured Relic Card) post.
First up is this brightly colored card of The Wizard:
2001 UD Decade 1970's Game-Used Bat #B-OS
I've been a fan of this relic card design since I first laid eyes on them years ago. The whole beaming sun rays coming from the supposedly game-used sliver of bat practically pops off the card. I also love the color combination used for this set. They sort of give off a Partridge Family/Brady Bunch vibe.
2008 Topps Factory Set Mantle Memorabilia #MMR60
I'm not really sure how this could have happened... but I actually forgot this card was sitting in my collection. It's one of those cards that Topps includes on top of their factory sets. A few years ago, I purchased the entire 2008 Topps set for $20 at a local card show. Mantle has always been a big name in our hobby... and he was hands down the biggest name when I started off collecting in the 80's. I don't really have a lot of his stuff and this is the only game-used memorabilia card featuring The Commerce Comet that I own.
There might be rarer and more expensive Mantle relic cards on the market, but as a fan of the 1960 Topps design... I'm more than content with owning this one.
Let's do something a little different with today's question of the day...
What's your favorite 70's television show?
For my readers who weren't alive during the 70's...
What's your favorite television show?
I probably could write a Saturday Night Five post on this question... but I'll go with Three's Company, The Courtship of Eddie's Father, and The Brady Bunch.
Not sure if I'm ready to declare which one is my absolute favorite, but I'm leaning towards Marsha and company.
Have a Sunshine Day! Happy Wednesday and sayonara!
