We've all heard the horror stories of mothers throwing away their kids card collections when they leave the house for college or elsewhere. This is the story of my Dad's collection and his near complete Harmon Killebrew collection when he went to college in 1970. Thankfully, I have a mother who appreciated my love of my baseball card and comic collection and she was certainly an "enabler" in my collection as she kept an eye out for interesting finds at thrift sales or the Goodwill. Which leads me to the subject of today's post, this framed item in honor of Chuck Knoblauch.
Here's a closer look at what we've got here. First we have a large artist rendering of Knoblauch swinging which looks pretty similar to Chuck's 1992 Classic card.
....a little back story on Chuck winning Rookie of the Year as well as a World Series Championship in his rookie season. I'm not sure exactly how many of these were made but it looks like I have #3310.
And lastly we have a mysterious baseball card with what looks like a "KR" in the upper left corner. I did a light search on what this card is exactly and if it was made specifically for these frames but I didn't find anything on. Does anyone have an idea of who made this card?
Also, are there any Knobby fans that would be interested in it. You can have it for just the cost of shipping to you if you are interested. It is a very well put together piece and I would certainly keep it if it had been Kirby or Kent Hrbek...or if Chuck had ended up playing for for anyone other than the Yankees. But if that's not a problem for you, just let me know.
