Finally found a 1967 Venezuelan Ron Swoboda to complete my team set.

Used ebay bucks and that 10% off discount to finally pick up a wickedly HTF Rocky Colavito #580 high number. And the centering is pretty frickin' exceptional for this card, too...

Congrats Darren on picking up that very nice Colavito to complete your 1967 Topps set! As we used to say at old Tiger Stadium in the early 60s — “Don’t knock the Rock!”

Love the 67 Swoboda. I was lucky enough to drive Ron to and from Laguardia Airport in August. He is a NICE guy. Really enjoyed talking baseball with him. Funny.. I am a Brooks Robinson collector and Ron made that amazing catch in 69 WS to put Brooks out !

I also found out we grew up about 10 miles apart in Baltimore.

Tech trouble... disregard until I can get the pic loaded... grabbed a 1960 Yaz though, nicely centered and one of those cards I just always liked and wanted... even as a Yankees fan!

And I've officially become just like my sainted grandmother searching for serious bargains, picking up this very high grade 1961 'Say Hey Kid' with incredible centering but a touch of snow, giving it a 'PD' designation, at a fraction of the cost...

Am preparing myself for the possibility of disappointment when I head to the grading booth at the Chicago show in a couple weeks. Still, I decided to roll the dice with a refund being my worst case scenario. Front looks great to me. Back makes me a bit uneasy. Happy to hear your thoughts.

Nice card Mike! Tough set to find high quality cards, those things chip easily.
