Last night I showed off cards #1-297, tonight is the remainder, cards 298-587.
Quite a few big names in the latter half of the set, as well as the shorter printed high numbers starting at #523.
Right off the bat, first row of cards you get Hammerin' Hank! Same page is the Giant Gunners card of Cepeda and Mays.
Harvey Haddix and Roberto Clemente side by side in the set, fantastic. Had a very tough time finding a Clemente card for cheap, as I actually remember buying that one for $40 at the 2014 National; it's a bit beat up, but I was still extremely happy to check that card off of my want list. Tony Kubek was a color man for the Blue Jays during the 80's; I listened to him and Don Chevrier call a lot of games as the Jays evolved into a winning team. The Tops in NL card with Mays and Aaron is a very underrated card in this set. Decent copies can be found now on ebay for the low to mid 40's, which to me is very cheap for a card featuring two of the best sluggers the game has ever known.
Two of the greatest pitchers from the set are on the same page, Bob Gibson and Gaylord Perry. The Rico Carty RC is one of my favorite cards from the set, as he played for the Blue Jays at the tail end of his career in the late 70's. Unfortunately he wasn't the player that he was in the 60's...
As we get into the high numbers, I think to myself that I'm thankful that there aren't a lot of big names there that would have cost a fortune. None the less, names like Niekro, Kaat, Uecker and Minoso each took a few dollars out of my wallet.
There you have it, the entire '64 set posted yesterday and today. Hope you enjoyed it!
Be sure to leave a comment on this post as well for another entry. I'm going to give everyone until Sunday at 3PM EDT, then I'll run the random generator and give out a couple of COMC prizes to help celebrate my good fortune of completing this set.
Thanks for reading! Robert
