There was a lot happening in my world today. I learned late last night that my beloved Maple Leafs finally pulled the plug on their coaching situation and fired coach Ron Wilson. It's gotta be tough to avoid it when the denizens in the Air Canada Center in Toronto are chanting "FIRE WILSON" during a game. The Leafs responded with a solid 3-1 win this evening for their new coach, and have 17 games left to salvage their season.
And that's all I have to say about that.
Now, it is the first weekend of the month, which means it's the monthly card show. I went there with the sole purpose of working on my set list for '77 Topps. Well, I did just that. 84 cards later, and I've put a major dent into the want list for this set. Once again, seeing a lot of these cards just brings back memories of my childhood.
Nicknames galore on a bunch of these guys...
First, I found a Doc
|Insert your own joke here|
|quite the mop|
|Spent all of '77 in AAA|
|Man, what a horrible airbrush job|
Anyone up for some Chicken??
How about "The Other Brett"
|Tim's daddy, may he RIP|
Can't have a group of 70's nick names without 'the Spaceman'
I was also able to pickup a couple of other cards from other 70s sets as well.
Tomorrow, I'll take a look at the other purchases from the show....13 cards in total.
Thanks for reading, Robert
