I don't typically care much for Stadium Club inserts, but as those go this one's not half bad.
Joe's note accompanying the cards stated that some were cards he pulled from packs while others came from dime boxes. I'd assume this one was the former, because if it was the latter that was one hell of a dime box find!
1974 Topps #137 - Al Bumbry
Last but not least, a buyback, and fittingly, an Oriole. A cool buyback to get too, as Bumbry was coming off his 1973 AL Rookie of the Year campaign when this one was being pulled from packs. He'd later win a World Series with the O's in 1983, and is enshrined in the team's HOF. A nice old Yankee Stadium backdrop here also.
Thanks for the fantastic cards Joe! The smattering of recent Red Sox was much appreciated, and any trade package featuring cards that force their way into the franken-set binder is an automatic winner in my book. Although I'm sure it probably feels like it, I promise I haven't forgotten about posting your last two packages, and more importantly about returning fire. Soon!
