Yesterday I sat down and sorted a stack of 1980-88 TCMA Baseball Immortals that he sent me. After about 15 minutes, I figured out that over 80% of the set was sitting right in front of me.
Normally... I'd break this set up and put the singles into my player's inserts, parallels, and oddballs binders.
However this set is way too beautiful to be buried among other card designs. These colorful borders are absolutely stunning and need to be displayed in a binder for easy viewing. And that's exactly what I did:
I'm not exactly sure about how I'll go about building this set. I'll probably start by hitting up Sportlots and hopefully cross off the majority of my set needs... which happens to be these:
Thank you Woody for helping me get started with such a cool set from my childhood. When I was younger this was one of the only ways I could add guys like Jimmie Foxx and Babe Ruth to my collection. And the fact that they're reminiscent of the 1975 Topps set is the icing on the cake.
Speaking of 1975 Topps... I recently received a care package from Night Owl who happens to be one of the blogosphere's biggest fans of that set.
The package contained a variety of stuff that included cards for my A's, Padres, Seahawks, and Packers collections:
He also included some cards for my player collections:
And if that weren't enough... he sent a nice stack of cards for my students as well:
Thanks Greg! I don't think I have any new Dodgers that you need. However... I've been picking up a few Buffalo Bills cards that have your name on it. I'll probably ship it out after the new year to avoid the holiday postal scene.
Have a great week everyone! Happy Monday and sayonara!
