If you all can recall, I wrote about the Roberto Clemente card above being given to me by my boss from his personal collection. Roberto Clemente is one of my favorite players of all time. To get the oversized card above, it meant a lot to me. My boss recently asked me to go through some more of his cards to see if I can find a new home for them. Below are the cards from the box he recently gave me to go through. I have to admit, some of these cards I plan on buying for my own collection, but if you see anything that stands out that you may want to make an offer on, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. So let’s see what is in this box that I will be counting as a special pack for Day 74:
Boog is one of the nicest retired players I have met. Many a nights while at an Orioles game you will have a chance to get his autograph before the game at his BBQ stand in right field at Camden Yards. He’s not hard to spot and he will sign anything, well almost anything.
Eddie Murray was one of the coolest looking Orioles. Why we ever let him get away I will never know, well I do, because we are the Orioles!
I love the Bufford card from the ’69 World Series. I may get this one to go along with my recently acquired Orioles ’70 World Series pin from the Allan Roth collection.
I was shocked to find the O.J. card looking back at me. The two cards above have really nice coloration.
The cards below from 1971 are flippin’ sweet. Anyone know why they are marked 1968 on the back? These cards are showing up as 71’s online.
So that’s it from this special box. Let me know if any of the cards interest you. If not, the ones I don’t buy are going to Vegas with me.
I may have one more post in me for later. Check back in and see if I found anything else to post about today. Until then, head on over to the Wax Cracker/ Steel City March Madness Pick ‘Em League on ESPN and sign up. You may take home one of three really sweet prizes.
