Another street trade

I had another request from Al - he wanted some Tom Seavers and some Pete Roses. I had a few '84 Topps Seavers (his last year with the Mets) and some 87-89 Topps manager cards of Rose - good enough to take five more cards out of his box.

The one on the left is Hank Greenberg in military uniform. The other two in this picture are Barry Bonds inserts. I really like that one on the bottom.
 Jorge Mateo is the Yankees prospect who got suspended by the team earlier this year after conflicts with team management. This is a purple chrome cards numbered to 250.
 I almost never purposely acquire vintage, but the chance to open the legendary Billy Martin card where he subtly flips the bird to the photographer was too good to pass up.
