Some More Burried Treasure
But still, I came up with some more cool odds and ends this weekend. I believe most or all of these cards came from a local mall show back in 2007 or so, when my collecting interests were still taking shape. All I knew was back then I rarely came across vintage, and these cards seemed awesome for a buck or less.
A few years later, I still agree with myself.
The Brock is unquestionably the gem here. I don't have the same appreciation for men holding bats that Dimebox Nick does, but even I have to admit that red bat is pretty awesome. As are the ridiculous white stripes on the batting helmet.
I have always had a soft spot for cards that commemorate a particular date, whether it's playoff games, milestones, or individual accomplishments. This card definitely fits the bill, even if the Bucs weren't in the series. Brooks Robinson making a diving stop? Just icing on the cake.
