I think itís refressing to see how informal these awards ceremonies were back in the day. Hereís your award, snap a few pics and thatís that. Funny to see players just walking around like itís no biggy; Roberto wins the GG award just like everyone thought he would.

Day 108

1980-83 Baseball Legends...






The card is common, but these are the only wrappers of this style that I have seen. They are very heavy paper stock and I'm assuming they used these initially (they have the typical fold lines from packaging) before replacing them with a cheaper, generic wax wrapper which I will show later in the post. When I purchased this lot, one wrapper stood out from the rest. It appears to have been printed on a different paper stock color (more white than yellow). I know this may not seem like a big deal to some, but when you are a player collector, it's little finds like these that make me continue to search for oddball items.





White wrapper...





Yellow wrapper...





The next item is not mine, I am posting to show the different version wrappers.

Default Interesting!

I have never seen the wrappers or pack/box from that set. With you 100% on looking for those small (or big) variations as a player collector - I remember having collected bazooka boxes for years when I found out about the 2 size variations!! (Thanks Larry S.) I was completely jazzed and amazed.

I definitely enjoy picking up oddball items especially that I didnít know existed. Like in the case you mentioned Iíve never seen either of the wrappers you pictured and I see Brooksie is on there as welll. Itís something else I need to add to my hodgepodge checklist. Do you happen to have any more of the yellow wrappers remaining?

Thanks for posting these!

A number of Clemente original 35 mm slides have come up for auction lately. I recently picked up this one and could not be happier. Its one of the better ones I have seen.

Hi Mike,

Iíve seen a lot of those slides and have considered bidding, but wasnít sure if they were period slides. Do you think theyíre from the early 70s?

They are from the early 1970s. I actually was lucky enough to pick up a couple real cheap and when they arrived they had Malcolm Emmons name written on them. One of them was a Danny Murtaugh image that was actually used for a Sporting News cover.
