eBay Pick-up

I recently picked up this lot of fifty 1982 Fleer Wallach cards on ebay.  Typically on ebay, when it comes to lots, I like to keep it under 5¢ a card shipped, and avoid anything over 10¢ a card shipped, unless there is something really compelling about the lot.  This one ended up costing me a little more than my dime a card ceiling once the shipping was added, but I can live with it.  1982 Fleer is one of my favorite non-Topps sets of the 80's, and while this card likely wouldn't make my non-existent Top 10 list for favorite Wallach's, it would definitely be in the honorable mention category.

Peoria, IL

These nine Wallach cards, and what is easily the greatest Andy Van Slyke (a Utica, NY area product) card ever printed, came courtesy of P-Town Tom of "Waiting 'til Next Year."  It's been about a month since I've posted so my apologies to everyone who has sent cards and hasn't seen anything pop up. 

Thanks for the cards Tom.  I'll try to take a crack at some of your set needs.

Houston, Texas

These cards were sent by Marc, of Houston, Texas.  Marc operates the blog; "Remember the Astrodome."  You should go ahead and check it out, it's well worth a look.  My only complaint, is that given how nice the banner is for the blog, I would have liked to see J.R. Richard in place of bagwell and that awful non-tequila sunrise uniform, and probably would have squeezed in Glenn Davis or maybe Kevin Bass.  But that's nit-picking.

Included with the nice mix of nine Wallach cards was an 8x10 photo.  Not just a standard stock photo though.  This one appears to have been put out by some company, presumably as the part of some sort of set?  It reminds me of the posters Sports Illustrated used to produce (never a Wallach, jerks), but obviously smaller, and photo quality is very high, much more so than a poster.  If you know what exactly it is, please fill me in, I'd love more details.

Thanks for the cards and photo Marc.

Ottawa, Ontario

*Update* I missed that a piece of cardboard Angus used for backing had a note on the back.  Please checkout his blog "Dawg Day Cards," which has a focus on the Cleveland Browns.

This package sent by Angus, of Ottawa, Canada, may be one of the more fun and surprising packages that I have ever received.  It was absolutely loaded with odd ball cards that I am in short supply of.  From the earliest in the envelope, and '83 Stuart (my first new one since 2014), to the most recent, a '93 Donruss McDonald's, and everything in between it was awesome.  You may notice there are a lot of small numbers listed in the totals below.  Probably my favorite of the bunch was a well loved 1985 O-Pee-Chee.  By my count, this is the second time he's sent cards, having also mailed me some in December 2015.

In addition to the cards, Angus included a 1984 Expos Postcard (Canadian Version), and and uncut Hostess disk pair.  The Expos Postcards are definitely something I want to track down at some point and put together a run of.  As it stands, this was one was the only one I previously had.  I'll probably stick a stamp on it and send it to Wallach care of the Miami Marlins.  I don't count them as "cards," but they're certainly something I want.  The Hostess disc I do count as a "card," even uncut, which brings the card count for this envelop to 26.  Thank you very much Angus, and please let me know if there's anything I can send in return.

Sunday Edition (on a Monday)

These cards were sent by Jim of Elgin, IL.  Included were a trio of 2012 needs and handful of 2008 needs.  Jim has more or less taken over the responsibility of completing 2008 Topps for me.  2008 was the first year I started collecting after about a thirteen year absence so it'll be sort of nice to finally complete it.  With the five Jim sent in this envelope, I'm now a mere four cards away.  If your interested, here's what I'm looking for, though I'll probably be on Sportlots this week to close it out myself:

 2008: 476, 518, 618, 623 

Also included were the two Fleer basketball checklist from 1987-88 and 1988-89.  I have a soft spot in my heart for the early Fleer basketball sets, and have really enjoyed piecing them together as they always seemed so unattainable when I was a kid in the early 90's.  I mentioned above how I returned to collecting in 2008 after a long absence.  But I've returned as a different kind of collector.  I used to focus on rookies and was a top loader kind of guy.  Now, I'm an unapologetic set builder and fully embrace 3-ring binders.  I don't care if I just dropped the price of a dinner at Outback on a card, it looks better in a 9-pocket page with 8 other cards from it's set than a top loader.  These really aren't investments for me.  They're something I enjoy, so I figure why not enjoy them as much as a I can?

To that effect, I'd like to show off my Fleer Basketball Binder.  These sets are small (132 cards plus some stickers), and all three easily fit in the same 1'' binder.  Here's a look at how it's coming along:

 The 1986-87 Fleer set is two cards away from completion.  This was the first one I started building as teenager in the 90's.  I'm only missing Larry Bird and Michael Jordan.  I recently crossed Magic Johnson off of the list to bring it down from three to two.  The Magic and Bird in this set were never really priorities for me as they weren't rookie cards, and I was never really a huge fan of them.  As a kid in Phoenix in the late 1980's I was a huge Kevin Johnson the Suns (particularly The Gorilla).  I hated Magic and the Lakers and they seemed to always knock "K.J." from the playoffs.  As for the Celtics, well, they're from Boston, I don't really like anything from Boston.  So shelling out ten bucks or so for the Bird just hasn't been high on my to do list.  As for the Jordan, I'd like to short sell stock in that card if I could.  This set is not all that scarce.  Dozens of new listings appear on eBay every day.   I believe with everyday that passes the legend of Jordan fades a little bit as children foolishly argue Kobe or LeBron or some Warrior as the latest and greatest thing (Jordan is still the correct answer FYI), and given the over abundance of the card, the price will drop eventually.  I'll wait.

1987-88 is the set of the first three that I have the most work to do on.  Two years ago at this time I had maybe three or four cards from this set in my entire collection.  I never really targeted it when I was younger, because it lacked the rookies of the other too.  1986 boast the likes of Jordan, Ewing, Mullin, Malone, Drexler, Isiah, and Olajuwan rookies just to name a few.  1988 has Reggie Miller, John Stockton, Scottie Pippen and Dennis Rodman.  This set has, I believe, Herb Williams (no disrespect Herb).  I've made some progress but there is still a long way to go.  It's probably my least favorite of the three, and isn't exactly cheap, so perhaps I lack some of the necessary enthusiasm to be making the progress I'd like to.

I like this 1988-89 set.  As I mentioned above it has some nice rookies and I like the design.  As a die-hard Syracuse fan, it's no small detail that Pearl Washington also appears on his only NBA card in this set.  This is the only one of the first three that I own the Jordan from, and it's also the only one I have most the stickers for.  While I have a few cards to knock out, this set isn't all that daunting to take on, but makes for a nice bookend with the other two.  At some point, I may take on some of the 1970's Topps Basketball sets, or maybe the mid-80's Topps Football.  Older O-Pee-Chee Hockey also looks fun to me, but as you can see below, I still have some work to do here.

Fleer Basketball Sets

1986-87: 9, 57

Berkley, MI

These 41 Wallach cards were generously sent by Paul from Berkley, Michigan.  Paul operates the "Scribbled Ink" blog, which I encourage you click and open in a new tab right now before you even finish reading this sentence.  It's a nice mix of cards with a lot from the Expos years. 

For something different I went with mostly the card backs for a change and noticed something I never had before.  Take a look at the 1991 Upper Deck checklist card (it's the Wells painting) and the back of the 1991 Upper Deck card.  I'm willing to bet that the photo used by Wells was probably from the same at bat as the photo on the back of the '91 UD base card.  Upper Deck probably sent him photos that they opted not to use on the card.  It's little things like this that excite me.

Thanks for the cards Paul.

Ramsey, NJ

These four cards were sent by regular contributor, Max, of Ramsey, New Jersey.  That 1984 Topps is actually a "gold, Rediscover Topps" card.  I went ahead and posted that card last week as a new addition, as it's the first 1984 buyback that has crossed my path.  In the past, on the few occassions readers have sent me cards I didn't already have, I would post the mailing first, then the card.  This time I decided to break from protocal.  I'm not sure which way is best, but I'm confident nobody really cares besides me.  Thanks for the cards Max, very cool.

2017 "Rediscover Topps" 1984 Topps #232

Card Review: 9.5  I gave 1984 Topps a "9.7" grade.  I'm knocking this one down two tenths of a point due to the superfluous gold stamping running down the side.  The card looks better without it, but 1984 Topps is such a classic, that it takes more than a little stupid stamping to ruin one.

This card was recently sent by a reader (his package post is coming soon). I haven't really made an effort to purchase these when they pop up, as I don't really feel a burning need to pay a dollar plus for an 1988 Topps Wallach, when they can be had for mere pennies elsewhere, especially these that have been degraded with extra stamping.  In my outdated vintage universe, this stamping is frowned upon, and lacks the novelty of adding the character that some kid's hand writing on the front of a '52 noting a trade to the Browns brings with it.

That said, I need one of each because I'm a prisoner to my own o.c.d. impulses.  I don't need one of each color, but I'd like one of each year.  This is the first '84 I've seen.  I'm now short '82, '83, and both '86 (base and All-Star), assuming those even exists.

These five cards were sent by a reader from Denver, CO.

Sunday Edition

All-Autograph Team

I'm a little late to this party, both for this specific "bat around" and for the "bat arounds" in general.  I've seen them and always thought, "that seems" fun, but never actually done one.  This task was actually somewhat difficult for me, as I chose to go with strictly cards, and not use any balls or photos, bats ect., and to a larger extent, difficult because I'm not an "autograph" guy.  I haven't been excited about an autograph since Dave Stewart signed my brothers glove at a spring training game back in 1989.  As a kid, I was crazy about them, but somewhere around the time I stopped playing video games when I  12 or 13, I out grew autographs.  I found new interests.

But without further rambling, here's my line-up, such as it is (please read the bold text in your best Bob Shepard voice):

Leading off, Shortstop, #11 Luis Aparicio, #11

I moved to Cooperstown, NY when I was ten.  It's where I graduated high school from.  I was already a baseball nut when I moved there from Phoenix.  Every year (at they used to) the Hall of Fame put on an autograph session for kids at the Clark's Sports Center over Hall of Fame weekend.  I had "connections," and found my way into it every year until I got too old.  Luis signed this card for me.  I usually took 8x10's for the big names (or bigger i.e. Ted Williams) and then had the rest sign the Freeman's Journal HOF Weekend edition.  You also got those yellow postcards signed.  My father was (is) a die-hard Sox fan.  This was one of his childhood cards.  When Aparicio showed up on the list, he sent this with me, insisting Aparicio was every bit as special as that Rizzuto character.  Better even.  This card isn't going anywhere.

Batting 2nd, 2nd Baseman, #23 Ryne Sandberg, #23

Sandberg signed this card for me the year it came out in 1989. I was probably ten year old.  My best friend at the time, through no fault of his own, was a huge fan of Chicago's jv professional team.  His uncle was playing in some celebrity pro-am golf tournament in Phoenix, and he took my buddy and I to the driving range to hunt of for autographs from the ball players.  Sandberg was awesome.  He signed both my cards and I remember him being super friendly.  My buddy was totally geeking out, as Sandberg was his Wallach, and Ryne was very patient with us.  The other ballplayer at the event, not so much, but I'll get to him next.

Batting 3rd, Left Fielder, #3 Harmon Killebrew

Killebrew signed this for me at the same golf event where Sandberg signed for me.  Killebrew was less interested in signing, and his handlers had zero interest in it.  I'm a little fuzzy on the details, but some how he dropped a tee or something and I picked it up for him, so he sort of grumbled and signed my card.  This is another one of my father's childhood cards, and my father was quite thrilled when I brought it home.  Killebrew didn't sign for my buddy or anyone else for that matter.  At the time I was still so excited about getting Ryne Sandberg's auto that this Killebrew fellow was just sort of an afterthought.  Now it's one my favorite cards in my collection.

Batting 4th, 3rd baseman, #29 Time Wallach, #29

I sent this card to Wallach at Olympic Stadium at the start of the 1987 season with an SASE.  He sent it back like this.  Here's more on this card if your interested.

Batting 5th, Left Fielder, #41 Darrell Evans, #41

Evans signed this card for my daughter a few years back when he came to Farmington for the Connie Mack World Series (it's an off-brand American Legion Tournament they host in Farmington).  When I get autographs now, it's only with my daughter, and I always have her ask for the inscription, so there's not confusion that it's for her, and not her 38 year old father who believes he is entirely too old to ask for autographs.  Though if Eddie Vedder ever walks in the door, that theory will be put to a test.  Evans to his credit, was the friendliest, nicest, just all around good guy I've ever run across as far as pro-athletes go.  He was so nice and accommodating to my family and I that I felt like we should send him a Christmas card.  As far as this line-up goes, Evans played 83 of his 2,403 career games in LF, so that's good enough for me.

Batting 6th, Center Fielder, #7 Hubie Brooks, #7

Brooks played about a third of his 1,500 or so career games in the outfield.  Exactly zero of them were in center field, but I'm thin on auto's and have all the confidence in the world in Hubie.  How thin am I on autographs?  So thin, that this is currently the only one in my collection that came out of a pack and doesn't say "Tim Wallach."  *unpopular opinion alert*  I don't consider this a real autograph.  To me this is just a glorified version of the facsimile autos you see on sets like 1982 Topps.  Topps created this, sealed it in a pack, packaged it up and sent it out to be put on a store shelf.  It was made by Topps, the fact it crossed Hubie's desk during the production process doesn't change that for me.  It just doesn't move my needle.  If you like them, then great, you'll be happy to know when I pull auto's I send them to other collector's in return for Wallach's.  So more for you.  I have this one because (1) I always loved Hubie, (2) 1988 Topps is the most underrated set of all-time and a true treasure to the hobby, and (3) that All-Star game handshake line is one of the greatest looking card photos I've ever seen.  It also doesn't hurt that Tim Wallach is attached to that arm high fiving right behind Hubie.  Just imagine how much better this card would be without the white fade and sharpie on the bottom third.

Batting 7th, 1st Baseman, #25 Tony Muser, #25

Mr. Muser signed this card for my daughter at a Connie Mack World Series event a few years back.  Not the same one that Evans was at, but the same one as the next guy.  Muser played in the Tournament as a teenager and was one of the guys they brought back for the 50th anniversary.  

Batting 8th, Catcher, #6 Larry Harlow, #6

Larry Harlow is a local kid from Aztec, New Mexico and played 448 games in the major leagues.  Not one of them was at catcher.  But I need a catcher, and when you're Larry Harlow trying to make a major league line-up, you do what you have to, and in this case, that means catching.

Batting 9th, Pitcher, #17 Jack Lozorko, #17

When Darrell Evans was in town and set up to sign autographs at the Connie Mack World Series, it was sponsored by and held in the lobby of a local casino.  My daughter's mother side is all from Detroit, and are all huge Tiger fans, so we went to see Darrell Evans.  Jose Guzman was also there.  So I went with a large stack of cards for both Evans and Guzman.  The casino had them signing playing cards, like literal 5 of clubs Northern Edge Navajo Casino playing cards.  I figured that may be the situation and thought I'd be a nice guy and bring them cards.  I left Evans with about 50 cards of his and Guzman maybe a dozen, and they signed a few for my daughter.  A guy in a suit behind them, thought this was great, and reached in his pocket and pulled this card out for my daughter.  He managed the casino and wasn't signing, but he was former MLB'er Jack Lazorko.  It was pretty cool, and that's why I have him starting over Guzman.  It's a shame too, because had I known he was going to be there, I have probably a hundred Jack Lozorko cards that could have been put to good use.

Raleigh, NC

This envelope arrived from James in Raleigh, North Carolina.  Initially, I was a little surprised to receive a pack of cards.  It was kind of exciting to see in my mailbox, I love opening old wax as much as anyone, but I had never been sent just a pack without other cards.  But there's a first for everything.  I couldn't quite read the note James sent.  "Been cracking packs and (something) one for you."  "Marked?" "pulled," "left?"  I couldn't tell, but it didn't really matter.

Upon turning the back over I could see that the seal had already been broken, but more importantly, I immediately recognized the card showing as the iconic (perhaps iconic is too strong a description) back of the 1988 Topps Tim Wallach All-Star card, which features the 1987 NL Leaders for Game Winning RBI's, a stat Wallach finished in a four-way tie for first in.  I figured James had seen the Wallach and decided to send me the whole pack rather than just one card.  Which would have been awesome.  But when I went to pull the Wallach out of the pack, the mystery word in the note suddenly came into focus.  It said "made a pack for you."  The pack was stuffed with nothing but Wallach cards. 

I appreciate the effort James, it was a lot of fun to open this.

Broomfield, CO - Sunday Edition

Adam, who publishes "Infield Fly Rule" sent the above cards from Broomfield, Colorado.  The 1993 Topps Traded are always a nice (and somewhat uncommon) surprise.  If you're so inclined, I encourage you go and check out his blog and add it to your list of card blogs if you haven't already,  here's a link:

And before I dive into the non-Wallach cards Adam sent, here are the updated numbers for the Wallach cards he sent:

The majority of the cards sent by Adam were 2014 Topps.  While I haven't been that aggressive about it, I have slowly been working on filling out the Topps bases sets from 2008 to present.  2008 is when I started collecting again and at some point in the last few years as I've dived more and more into vintage set building, it started to bug me that I wasn't completing the current sets.  So it's been a focus.  Thank you for the help with 2014 Adam.

Yesterday, when I went to edit my "need page" to reflect the cards sent by Adam, I also finally took the time to update my 2012 needs.  Previously I had only listed 2012 Series One, and left "TBD" for Series Two, as there were so many of them.  When I got towards the end I googled a checklist to see how many cards were in the set.  Card #7 was a need, so I didn't know if it was a year Topps didn't print a #7, or if I was just missing it, and in turn didn't know if #660 or #661 was the final card.

Well, there is a #7, and the last card is #661.  I'll admit, beyond talk of the design when it's first released, I am more or less completely ignorant to the on going's of current baseball cards and the chatter around them.  If I see a blog post debating some trivial aspect of the 1968 design, I'm reading it.  If it says something about a red ink autograph rainbow Topps Now living redemption, I'm probably ignoring it.  So this may be old news to many of you, but it's new to me and I didn't get a chance to whine about six years ago because I oblivious to it.

#661 in 2012 is a short printed Bryce Harper card.  There shouldn't be intentional short prints in the base set.  That's dirty pool as my grandfather would say.  So already annoyed, I became even more agitated as I looked into this card.  I have two basic questions, and I can't find answers to either, so somebody help me out;

#1 Is my 2012 Topps set complete with cards #1-660, or do I need #661 to be complete?  I know, "collect what makes you happy," but what makes me happy is having the commonly accepted "complete set."  I don't need all the variations errors, etc, I just need the traditional complete set.  So does 2012 include #661, or is it just a gimmick insert?

My second question is what really made me start to lose my temper (as much I lose my temper with regards to baseball cards, basically I just shake my ahead and mumble to myself, that qualifies as a full on cardboard rage).

#2 If #661 Harper is part of the set, which one is the "right" one?  I went on eBay and couldn't figure out what the "regular" card was,  there are multiple photo variations, and none of them seem to cost all that much more or less than the others.  If Topps is going to pull these stunts, and I understand there are collector's who love this sort thing, they shouldn't do so in a way that agitates old set builders like myself.  The Topps base set is all we have left, and we don't want to see it messed with any more than it already has been.

So if any one as the answers, please fill me in.  I still have a huge number of other needs in 2012 before I have to worry about #661, but eventually I'll get there, and need to know which way to go when I do.

And if you're interested, here's an updated look at my "modern" Topps set needs that I'm looking for:
