Summer of '71

Another vintage trade, this time with Summer of '74. He sent me a nice stack of '71s. Some highlights:

One of the key rookies in the set.
 Three hall-of-famers, including my first vintage Gil Hodges.
 A great photo from the old Yankee Stadium. Interesting to see the near-empty bleachers in the background, with a few very casually dressed fans visible in the background.
 A great photo from the old Shea Stadium. Jesus Alou appears to be taking a pitch in the middle of game action, even though some other Astros are just walking off the field into the dugout. And look at the fans - it's helmet day at Shea Stadium!


  1. I make this mistake too, but Gil Hodges isn't a HOFer. At least not yet.

  2. Those look like their in really great shape!
