Default FeBRRRuary Pickups

If you're suffering under the frozen anvil of the 'polar vortex,' forget about starting a fire or putting on an ugly sweater, because nothing will warm your soul quite like some new eye candy.


I'll start it off with the titleholder for the most underappreciated 1966 Topps SP high number, #580 Billy Williams. Sure, it's OC, but the top to bottom centering doesn't bother me enough to care too much, side to side it's nearly perfect, and the corners are wickedly sharp. Plus, using my ebay bucks allowed me to get it for a song...

I was such a dangerous hitter I even got intentional walks during batting practice.

Default Dubuque Packers

I received this Dubuque Packers minor league baseball card today. It warmed me up a few degrees after minus 36 degrees actual temperature.

Frankie Baumholtz was one of my favorite players. I attended a lot of PCL, LA Angel games in the late 40's and early 50's. He had a great year in 1950, 254 hits and batted almost .400.

Nothing huge, but some nice recent 75 Topps pickups. As a child of the 1980s and having started collecting in the same era, the Brett card has always been iconic to me, yet unless my memory is faulty - this is the first one Ive ever owned. Was a PSA 6 in a new holder but bounced around in it more than a basketball - so was quickly liberated. The Schmidt is just a nice card, and Ive started a little player run on him in the last month or so after realizing how inexpensive most of his cards are. Most besides his rookie can be had for well less than $50 in nice shape, not bad for arguably the greatest 3rd baseman of all time.

Two all-time greats on a pair of regional issues...

John, nice 75's. The Brett rookie has always been one of my very favorite cards since I also collected in the 80's.
