Part 2 of this week's purchases has arrived
For $10.50 shipped, the Tony Conigliaro RC from the '64 set is here. In case you were wondering about Bill Spanswick on the bottom, he only pitched in the majors during the '64 season, going 2-3 with an ERA of 6.89. Boston's record in the 29 games that Spanswick pitched? 3-26. Ouch.
I had to look at Tony's stats to see where he hit the 42 doubles in 83 games that is mentioned on the back of the card. He played for Wellsville in the single A New York Penn League in 1963. That team also featured another notable Red Sox hitter, George Scott.
The card is in nice shape; off center but the edges and corners are nice and for $10.50 this was an easy addition to the set.
Just 38 cards to go...less than 1 a week to finish by the end of 2016!
thanks for reading, Robert
