Three weeks ago, I showed off Gio's 70s Baseball Series One release. These are some of my favorite cards from 2020. It's been a tough year for baseball in general. Retail shelves have remained mostly empty. Hobby boxes are scooped up too, almost as quickly. But these! They may be somewhat limited but not impossible to score. And maybe this series should be called Score but for the fact Score didn't give us baseball cards in the 70s.
Feast upon these 15 beauties and what could have been:
Gio included another 'super' star with young Bench. It's my favorite card in the pack, with Mantle and Munson vying for second place.
As you well know by now, there is no second place in the Ballot Box contest. There is only one winner. Round four was hard on the Junk Candidates. At times, they seemed to muster some love but 1993 Donruss wasn't having any of that. Pushing Elite-ism, voters bought into its better-than-junk platform. But is it really any better? Sixteen voters said yes while eight had pity on the Topps/Score ticket.
Round four winner: Candidate B
If you read my first Gio 70s Series post, then you know I added a few cards to Pick Pockets. This time I'm parting with them here to my trade pals. Six cards are available -one per person. You will see seven but the Dodgers card is already set aside for Night Owl. If he declines, then it's up for grabs. Night Owl, let us know if you want to keep or pass on this card.
Please, only choose a card if you will keep it in your collection. These little fellas belong in a caring home. Thank you for supporting this blog! Without further delay...
