Buyback Franken-set: Tekulve!

Just one buyback tonight for the franken-set project, but it's a good one!

1977 Topps #374 - Kent Tekulve

Yup, it's the great Kent Tekulve!  This is actually the second buyback of Kent's to be considered for the project.  The first was his '87 Topps Phillies card though, and I'm sorry but Tekulve is a Pirate.  So, in a way this feels like the first.  Love the photograph on this one too.  The facsimile autograph is perfectly placed, and so too is the buyback stamp for that matter.

As if all of that wasn't enough, it's also a new number!  595 down, less than 200 to go, welcome to the franken-set binder Kent!

Franken-set Progress: 595/792 (75%)
1990 Topps Buyback Set: 64/792 (8%)
"Rejected" Buybacks: 450
Total Buybacks in Collection: 1,109

Loved watching Tekulve pitch. Surprised he had any skin on his knuckles. :)
