Christmas Cards

Good day, and Merry Christmas to those of you that celebrate the holiday! 

I stepped a bit out of my comfort zone this year as far as buying cards for myself for Christmas.  Let me explain.

I found a gentleman on the TCDB website who had posted on the forums that he was selling lots of mid 70's Topps baseball on ebay.  I took a look and it was sets that I'd already completed, or was near completing.   So I reached out to him and asked him if he could put a little lot together of '71 and '72 Topps together for me.

Next day, I had a response.  He had a bunch of cards (nearly 150 to be exact), and would send them to me for $75 shipped (priority mail).  I really didn't know him too well, but I decided to take the plunge and accept the transaction.  I sent the $$, and that afternoon I had a tracking # for my package in my inbox.  3 days later, what you see below arrived at my house.   It was very well packaged, so I was quite pleased. 

Enough of my chatter.   Enjoy the cards, and the holiday!

Thanks for reading!



  1. Merry Christmas, Robert! What a great (in both senses of the word) bunch of vintage!

  2. Most of those cards look like they're in really good shape, so I would have to think that this turned into a pretty good deal for you. Merry Christmas to you and yours, Robert :)

  3. Merry Christmas. Looks like it's time to start a trade war with you. I have quite a bit from your Topps Want list.

  4. Love those sets--great haul! Merry Christmas!

  5. Marichal has some of the coolest action shots from the 70's. That 72T card of him is awesome. So is that 71T Ted Simmons rookie card. Hope you and your family have a safe holiday season.

  6. Nicely done! Hope you had a good Christmas!

  7. Great lot! Nice to hear that an eBay seller would consolidate single cards into a lot like that. (He may have had them in bunches already). Some sellers list tons of single cards at way too much price + shipping individually, but wouldn't think to put them all together in one batch for us set builders.
