Show and Tell #37: The Collective Troll
When I lived in Seattle there was a famous Troll that lived underneath the Freemont Bridge...he wasn't known for his generous card packages like The Collective Troll but I bet he had a longer beard.
I received this great package from CT earlier this week and by far my favorite part of it was the collection of 1971 Topps:
1971 Topps #566 Tim Cullen
1971 Topps #31 Eddie Kasko
1971 Topps #531 Mike Torrez
1971 Topps #43 Pat Kelly
1971 Topps #419 Ron Hansen
1971 Topps #557 Tom Satriano
1971 Topps #601 Ken Tatum
1971 Topps #638 Stan Williams
1971 Topps #429 Chuck Hinton
1971 Topps #571 Ted Sizemore
1971 Topps #578 Rod Hunt
1971 Topps #587 Sonny Jackson
1971 Topps #547 Pat Dobson
1971 Topps #569 Ivan Murrell
1971 Topps #568 Sal Campisi
1971 Topps #542 Bob Miller
1971 Topps #584 Indians Team
I will highlight each of these eventually individually through my "The Continuing Saga: 1971 Topps" series.
Another four cards off my 1987 Topps needs list. I'm going to be having a little contest to try to complete that set later today so stop back and check that out.
1987 Topps #93 Jim Leyland
1987 Topps #602 Gary Carter All-Star
1987 Topps #158 Tim Teufel
1987 Topps #103 Rick Aguilera
A Jordan Zimmerman I don't have. I don't think I've opened one pack of Updates & Highlights from 2009.
2009 Topps Updates & Highlights #UH201 Jordan Zimmerman
1994 Topps Finest #214 Matt Williams
This hits two areas...Matt Williams cards and 1994 Topps Finest. Why do I collect Matt Williams? For no other reason than my name is Matt and Matt Williams is the best
"Matt" to ever play baseball.
Two Rays Xponential inserts from a Rays collector...I feel bad unless these are doubles...
