Default A year of Lou Brock

Inspired by a thread on the CU forums where a Gary Carter fan posted something from his collection every day of Gary Carter, over the next year I will post something from my collection several times per week of Lou Brock, in chronological order. I have close to 300 unique items, most from the period 1962 to 1981. I have stayed away from the 100's of newer cards for the most part.

So, from 1962 -

Default Lou as a Cub

It is his only card where he looks sad... no wonder contemplating a career as a Cub with no World Series appearances. How happy did Broglio look in his first Cub card :-)

Doubt if it is a blank back error, it is hand cut.

Could be a "proof" - whatever a proof is.

We will start 1966 off with this "marble". It may have been the worst marble ever made. It is 2 plastic bowl shaped pieces poorly glued together, so it will not roll straight, plus it is extremely light weight, so if you were trying to win your buddies marbles in 1966, this one wouldn't roll right, or push anything out of the circle..... In addition here is the package they came in with all the players that were in this particular package. They are pretty hard to find.

(Sorry for the blurry marble pictures, it was the best I could get with my cell phone)

Default Marble & Vennies

David--had never seen that marble game. Neat item. Too bad the stain is front center on the Vennie. Still a nice card. By the way, what is that stain ?

I think other people will pitch in to help out if you run out. I don't have much but I will do my part.

Vess Soda produced Brocca Pop, probably from 1977 or 78, based on the fact it mentions stolen base 893 from August 29, 1977.

I remember drinking Brocca Pop. Completely forgot about it until now David. I was 11 at that time it was out. Good stuff! Always liked Vess products.

I remember riding my bike to baseball practice in Crystal City MO and stopping at the IGA on my way home to check and see which cans they had. Never did find a Brock.

Exhibit style card only it is 11x14. Not sure of the date, probably late 70's, early 80's. I've got several other players, they included active players at the time, as well as retired players.
