While down in the basement the other day, I stumbled across the tupperware tub where I have my (what was) most valuable cards in snap-cases; you know: early Killebrew, Carew, and Blyleven cards, vintage high numbered SPs, and Puckett first year Fleer/Donruss/Leaf/Topps/Topps Tiffany cards, among others. They’d been secluded down there for probably about a decade now, and I’d barely remembered what was there. Here are some of the better ones:
clockwise, from top left: 1962 Topps #53 AL Home Run Leaders Harmon Killebrew (w/Maris, Mantle, Gentile); 1968 Topps #490 Super Stars Harmon Killebrew (w/Mays, Mantle); 1963 Topps SP #500 Harmon Killebrew; 1962 Topps #592 Rookie Parade Joe Bonikowski (w/Pfister, Belinsky, Bouton, and Stenhouse)
But the treat was this baby; I totally forgot I had it, and I can’t for the life of me remember even how I got it.
1991 Upper Deck Heroes of Baseball #H1 Harmon Killebrew [1358/3000]
I also found several trade bait cards that I’ll post in a couple days. I’m hoping I’ve forgotten even more cool stuff in other boxes, too!
