or, perhaps more accurately, my card collection celebrates when i receive trade packages in the mail such as the one reader john sent not quite a couple of months ago.
he knocked quite a few cards off of my 1965 topps want list, like this world series card
as well as the game 6 recap card featuring the yanks' jim bouton
john also included bouton's base card
here's the 1965 american league mvp and future dodger, zoilo versalles
here's the angel manager bill rigney
here's the back of jim king's card
i'm showing it because i like the backs of 1965 topps cards, and this one also mentions double plays. it's not a double play card, but it gets bonus points for a dp mention, even if it's related to outfield double plays.
john took a shot at my 2001 topps heritage want list, too. he sent along dodgers darren dreifort
of course, the red sox and giants were in the '52 set, and the twins were the senators back then. i just didn't take the time to separate the scan. also, dig on cristian guzman's facsimile signature.
last, but not least, john included one of the unnumbered checklists.
