But that doesn't mean I'm not willing to learn. I love hockey. And the Seals are a huge part of Bay Area sports history. That's why I decided to start collecting their stuff about six months ago. And thanks to the generous Mr. Hoyle my collection has recently quadrupled in size.
Check out what he sent last week...
1971/72 Topps California Golden Seals
1972/73 Topps California Golden Seals Set
193/74 Topps California Golden Seals Set
1974/75 Topps California Golden Seals Set
But that's not all. He also sent me this pair of Oakland Athletics:
1969 MLB PhotoStamp #91 and 1974 Topps Stamps #222
Oddballs are cool. Vintage cards are cooler. But vintage oddballs are the coolest.
Thanks Mr. Hoyle! I should have some Red Sox cards in the mail within the next week or so.
In addition to Mr. Hoyle's package... I also received some cards from Brett over at Card Collectors World Forums. He contacted me last month and asked if I collect autographs of former San Diego Padres.
Earlier in the week... he sent me these:
Jared Baker was drafted by the Padres in the third round of the 1992 MLB Amateur Draft, but never made it to The Big Show.
On the other hand, Scott Hairston has played eleven seasons in the MLB... four of which were with the Padres. In fact, his best years were arguably played in San Diego.
He also sent me a handful of San Jose Sharks cards... and this dual memorabilia card:
At first I struggled to figure out how this card fits into my PC. I'm not a fan of the Canucks or Blackhawks. Neither are known enforcers. But upon closer examination... I discovered that the bottom right corner was dinged. So I'm guessing that this was intended to be my Damaged Card PC's newest addition.
Okay... it's time to get ready for dinner.
Happy Saturday and sayonara!
