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:

Group 1

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

Group 2

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...

2008 Upper Deck X #X2-BU B.J. Upton 2nd Power
2008 Upper Deck X #X-BU B.J. Upton 1st Power

Thanks Troll and there a little thank you headed your way.

I've got 6 of the 1987 Topps cards you need...and it's ironic to me that one you need is 'ol Bip.

The '71 set was the first we collected as kids, and the Sal Campisi card drew groans from us all. Don't ask me why; I don't remember.

Glad to help! Those X cards were dupes and I think you are the only one working on the set. Glad to help with everything. I have a partial set of 1994 Finest if you really want to chase it... BTW-that is hilarious that Bip is one of the cards you need to finish off that set. Enjoy!
