1968 Topps #512 - Grant Jackson
A classic pose, bright vibrant colors, and just enough background mystery to keep things interesting make this '68 Grant Jackson a very compelling card. I really, really like this one. As soon as I thumbed across it in the stack I got a big smile on my face. This card has to make the binder, right?
1993 Topps #215 - Pat Howell
Pat Howell played well over 1,100 games in the minor leagues, including stints in Mexico and Taiwan. He did briefly appear with the Mets in 1992 (thus this card in the '93 Topps set), but it amounted to just 31 games, and would wind up being the entirety of his MLB career. Pat's got some competition for the franken-set as well...
One card that lost in a route, another that fought its way into the binder. 50/50 is actually good odds at this stage of the project. Thanks so much for this pair Joe, and sorry it took me so long to post them.
Thanks for stopping by, and enjoy the Cup Finals game tonight hockey fans!
