Default First ever baseball card

Nice Yaz collection! The first pack of cards I ever bought and my only 1972 pack contained Yaz and I still have the card. Its pretty rough as i was five years old at the time and carried that card around for years with my 1973s thru 1975s in an old metal keyed box. Just for fun i will post a picture of it tomorrow.

Default Yaz

My dad is a huge Yaz fan. He's not much of a memorabilia collector, but I try to pick him up a Yaz item once a year...when Jim stinson offered this one up a few years back I couldn't pass it up... It's signed by the entire Yaz Family, more than likely during spring training of Carl's rookie campaign... It has since been framed with a photo of Carl Sr. During his semi pro days! With his two sons (Richard and Carl) who were bat boys at the time....

Wow, that's pretty awesome. The Sox actually had sent a scout to Long Island to scout Carl Sr when they discovered junior. It sounds like senior was a hell of a good ball player himself.

And I gotta say, that's the only Hattie Yastrzemski signature I've ever seen.

Default Yaz




I met Yaz in Cooperstown in the Summer of 1989....when he was inducted into the HOF. We had a brief conversation. A really nice guy.

I don't have one but I think a Yaz bat would be a neat crossover collectors item.

I pick up Yaz items frequently and I promise not to post them all, but I was excited about this one that came today. I hadn't planned to upgrade my PSA 4, but this 6 is much nicer in terms of corners and centering, and the price was right. Only 7 copies graded higher, so very happy with a nice mid grade copy:

Don't promise to "not post them all"; shoot...post them all! As a single player collector, although not Yaz, I enjoy seeing others cards that collect similarly. Plus you gotta love Yaz!

Default 1968 SI Poster

I personally don't have much in regard to Yaz, but I do really like the '68 Sports Illustrated poster. I guess they produced a ton since it's still a pretty inexpensive piece.

Got a helluva deal on this 65 Topps and it arrived in the mail today.Thanks! I actually prefer this over most of the basic set, because the photo is so unique. Almost every other basic issue is a head shot or a batting stance. The 65T is definitely different.

This card leaves me 1 card shy of completing the 60's portion of the PSA basic set. Then I need 1 new and 1 upgrade to finish the 70's and the 1980 Topps and 81 Donruss I just added leave me needing 2 new to finish the 80's. Below is my wish list, the only cards I need before I consider my 34-card basic set complete:

1963 Topps #115 in PSA 7
1971 Topps #530 in PSA 7.5 or 8
1973 Topps #245 in PSA 8
1982 Topps #650 in PSA 9
1984 Fleer #412 in PSA 10

If you have any of those for sale or trade, please let me know. Thanks!
