Johnny's Trading Spot Contest winnings

Participation is getting better on the Johnny's Trading Spot daily contests. There were 19 comments on the last post, triple what there used to be. Looks like the prizes keep getting better too!

Eight of the cards in the envelope were vintage Kellogg's. I already had Blomberg and Ryan, the rest are all new to me and greatly appreciated!

This was just as cool as the cards. It's a wallet-sized 1980 schedule for the NY Giants. Phil Simms is on the cover, having just completed his rookie season. #45 and #28 in the background are Alan Caldwell and Beasley Reece. Reece was a bit of a star for the Giants for a while. First National State Bank was acquired by another bank in 1983, and through a series of further mergers, is now Wells Fargo.

  1. I have a number of pocket schedules, but have never seen one with rounded corners before -- I like it!
