“Let me see if I got this right. You buy low grade

beat up cards and feature them on your blog.

That’s awesome. Totally different than all the

other blogs I have seen featuring the nicest cards.”


1974 Topps Hank Aaron and
1973 Topps Willlie Mays
Contest Cards

So far, I have awarded two of five cards from my month-long contest. They have been packed and sent. Last week had no winner. I had plenty of comments but the best had no email address associated to them.

I really want to give away Willie Mays (below, last week's card) and Hank Aaron (above, this week's card) so please comment.

In case you missed them, here are the rules: 
You can comment on any post during the life of the blog. The best comment of the week is the winner. In order to win, your user ID you comment with must have an email address associated with it. After notifying the winner via email, the winner has until midnight on the next Sunday (Pacific time) to claim their prize. 

Also, I would prefer that the same person does not win multiple times.  But that doesn't mean you can't comment or can't win. I just want to give as many people a chance to win as possible.

So this week's winner will get a chance at either a 1973 Willle Mays or a 1974 Hank Aaron. The second-best comment will get the other. I think that's fair.

Again, if you want one of these poor old baseball cards, please comment. I really want to share my love of these old cards. You have until midnight (Pacific time) on Sunday to win.

It's nice that Topps had a final Mays card in the 1974 set in a World Series!! :)

Thanks Anthony for the Clemente.
The 73 Mays would be an upgrade for my POBC 73 Mays. Visit my blog to compare. My doors are always open for those not gem mint 10's vintage cards. Have a Great Holiday Weekend.

I had the pleasure of being in the audience during a discussion Bob Costas had with Hank Aaron and Willie Mays when the All-Star Game was here in NY in 2008. My favorite part was when Mays mentioned that he would intentionally knock his cap off while chasing fly balls because he thought it made him look cool. So from his seat, he demonstrated this by raising his arm and knocking his cap off his head onto the floor. Everyone laughed and then said "Pick up my cap." Everyone laughed again, and he said "I'm serious, pick up my cap." Bob Costas was laughing and said something like "If Willie Mays asks you to pick up your cap, you do it."
