so, i asked brian if he had a double of foster - he did not, but he offered to send it to me anyway. well, i received it the other day, and, like the game of ball, it is glorious.
side note number one: a reader contacted me a while back looking for information on 1971 o-pee-chee variations, which got me thinking, maybe i should go for all 13 variations, not just the dodger related ones. so, i have added them to my want list, minus some i found a couple weekends ago.
side note number two: i found out last night that i am a canadian citizen, thanks to yesterday's amendment to the canadian citizenship act, so these o-pee-chee cards are even better, eh?
brian also included some junk wax, which i thought about posting on craigslist for thousands of dollars, but i couldn't resist ripping some 91 fleer. there were a bunch of great cards, surprisingly enough. check these out:
1991 o-pee-chee premier (so it's not the topps sister set, that's ok)
dan pasqua (in old-timey uniform)
kurt stillwell. a double play! stillwell must have the highest double play photo to card ratio of any player ever.stan belinda.

denny walling. men are from mars, women are from venus, denny walling is from neptune (nj).
dave eiland. i show this only because topps gave him a card after making only 3 starts for the yankees, but didn't bother with a regular issue card for don sutton (they did give him a box bottom card).
thanks captain. that was a lot of fun.
