Victor, NY

These 36 cards were sent by Josh of Victor, NY.  It's a nice grouping that includes a good number of 1980's Topps, my favorite subcategory of Wallach cards.  I'd never heard of Victor, New York, so I first assumed it must be somewhere on Long Island, but was somewhat embarrassed to discover it's just a little south of Rochester, halfway between Syracuse (Go Orange!) and Buffalo.  Now it's on the map.

Thanks for the cards Josh, they are very much appreciated.

  1. Victor, not far from Boeheim's hometown.

  2. Why does everyone assume that every unfamiliar town name in NY must be near NYC/Long Island?

  3. @Joe Werner,

    I assume it's from Long Island, because I've spent years living in the City, Hudson Valley, and Central New York. Whereas my knowledge of L.I. begins and ends with knowing how to get to Jones Beach.
