Before I continue, please visit my last post about The Hall of Potch - read at your leisure - and then vote in the poll. I'd be eternally grateful. (I may or may not be overstating my potential gratitude.)
So, anyway, The Big Pile Contest. So my name came up #1 in the randomizer, which meant I received first choice of 20 cards and could protect three from being stolen by others - and steal...others...did! So, it was a yay-boo kind of contest - but 95% yay since, again, these were free cards!
If memory serves, I protected these fine cards from the vultures salivating behind me:
|Loving the miscut to this swell action shot.|
Finally, the third baseball picture card I protected is next. I always enjoyed watching Mr. Cey - despite my Cincinnati Reds affinity. I couldn't resist adding this one to my collection.
I don't go out of my way to collect Carlton Fisk, Reggie Jackson and Ron Cey but I couldn't resist those three cards.
Here are a few other cards I picked up in the giveaway.
|He really and truly is The Word.|
Lemme see here, what else did I get from The Big Pile. Oh yes, a personal favorite of mine. Quietly, I collect this great guy. I'll likely need to catalog my Berkman collection soon and officially add him to my PC. Perhaps Ryan Braun will be removed, or even Starlin Castro or some other alleged ne'er-do-well.
Two of my all-time favorites above here. I've seen this set often through the years but don't really know what it is. Regardless, couldn't resist those two guys.
