27 for 2

I traded Al 27 pretty good cards from the minor stars lots I picked up. Yankees, Mets and Phillies (he's got a regular customer who is a Phillies fan). Players like Stottlemyre, Koosman, Luzinski etc. I still have plenty more of them. In fact I made a quick list of the players who appeared most often in those lots - if you are interested in a trade let me know!

Tommie Agee, Dick Allen, Dusty Baker, Sal Bando, Don Baylor, Buddy Bell, Paul Blair, Vida Blue, Bobby Bonds, Buckner, Campaneris, Bernie Carbo, Dave Cash, Concepcion, Darrell Evans, George Foster, Freehan, Fregosi, Griffey, Bud Harrelson, Gil Hodges, Ralph Houk, Tommy John, Cleon Jones, Kingman, Koosman, Kranepool, Lolich, Luzinski, Billy Martin, McCarver, Tug McGraw, Murcer, Nettles, Tony Oliva, Al Oliver, Pepitone, Petrocelli, Pinson, Boog Powell, Reuss, Mickey Rivers, Singleton, Mickey Stanley, Staub, Stottlemyre, Ted Simmons, Tiant, Bobby Valentine, Maury Wills

In return I picked two of Al's high-dollar cards. A mismatch in volume but not in value, I think. The Rose in particular I was staring at all summer, glad to finally have it in tow.


  1. Always a great idea to trade up, especially from all those bulk lots you've been buying. Nice cards!

  2. Nice deal! The expressions on both players' faces make me smile.
