There was actually one more similarity between the two PWEs, buybacks! Each PWE contained one, and both of them were 1966 buybacks from 2015 Topps Heritage.
1966 Topps #118 - Mike McCormick
Joe delivered big-time with this Mike McCormick! I didn't have a #118 previously, plus I love defunct franchises of yesteryear. Mike has been added to the franken-set binder. Mike was also just one year out from capturing the NL Cy Young Award here. I confess that until receiving this card I had no clue that McCormick won the award in dominating fashion in '67.
1966 Topps #44 - Bill Davis/Tom Kelley
Here's the buyback Nick sent. While I don't appreciate the card any less, unfortunately I've already got a copy of this one. Mark Hoyle gave it to me when I met up with him and Matt from Bob Walk the Plank in Providence a couple of months ago. It's really no problem though, because I know a couple of other collectors that like buybacks, and will have no problem forwarding this on to a good home.
Besides, Nick more than made up for it by sending along this one...
his hobby box of 2016 Update, and I'm honored that he thought to send it my way.
Thanks to both Joe and Nick for two eerily similar, and greatly appreciated PWEs! I'll be hitting you both back in the near future here!
