This '58 Topps Joe Nuxhall was the most expensive card I ended up winning, with a bid of 93 cents. Not the best deal really, as it's got a nice big surface crease through the middle. Who can resist a new vintage card featuring that great Reds logo though?
#271 - 1978 Randy Lerch
Finally, I picked up a trio of buybacks that the seller had available. These were what led me to locate the seller initially as I was browsing for cheap pick-ups for my buyback franken-set. This '78 Randy Lerch makes the cut at this point as the lone #271 buyback I've got.
#608 - 1976 Vic Correll
This Vic Correll also makes the franken-set without any competition. Correll was mostly a backup catcher, but it's nice to land a high numbered card for the franken-set regardless of who graces the front.
#612 - 1975 Terry Hughes
I honestly couldn't tell you a single thing about Terry Hughes or his time with the Red Sox. Not that surprising as I just looked it up and he was for the most part a "AAAA player", and appeared in just 41 total games with Boston. Either way, he's in as far as the franken-set is concerned!
A satisfying enough little lot there, especially given that the total bill came to just $3.55 plus shipping!
Franken-set Progress: 81/792 (10%)
