We made it! The long winter is over! There may be snow on the ground somewhere in this country but I refuse to see it! Yes, the pennant chase begins today. I long to be a faithful fan but there is a fickleness within which could have me rooting for another team. NO, I MUST FIGHT THE URGE.
I came across these fantastic cards a couple of weeks ago. They've been buried in boxes, waiting rediscovery. From 2003 Fleer Fall Classics, Pennant Aggression is a twenty card set. I scanned a few to share:
These cards are each serial numbered specific to a pennant winning year. For example, Ty Cobb is numbered /1908; Bench /1972; Berra /1951; Munson /1976 and Foxx /1930. I need five to complete my set.
I picked up these non-sports cards at a show a couple of years ago because they were $3 for the lot of 12 cards! Here are six which represent their overall condition. Easy to see why I scooped them up!
1956 Topps Davy Crockett:
A couple of nice relics from 2004 SP Legendary Cuts:
I also came across another forgotten but fun card which likely needs no intro:
I recently saw Reed on the new Cubbie blog, Zen and Now and knew it was a must have. I found it just a few days later, buried in a box. Happy I didn't purchase a second copy! By the way, this blog brings another female fan to our community!
It's Opening Week in Baseball! Here's to you my fellow bloggers and readers, it's a brand new year!
