I made reference in my post yesterday that the Notable Nicknames set has 3 Pirates in it and that I only needed the Cole. I've actually had the Parker for a significant amount of time but wanted to wait and show off until I either got the Polanco or Cole.
It looks like the Cole is going to be more of a challenge than initially thought. I haven't seen one go below $40 and average price seems to be around $50-55. That is a little out of my comfort zone for Cole.
Here is the Parker.
2014 Notable Nickname Dave Parker /99
The Parker is the cheapest of the three Pirates in this set, but it was my most desired one. Parker has a handful of cards that feature his nickname, but in my opinion this is the nicest version. On card and in bright blue ink, the card does a good job of making the nickname the main attraction.
One of the nice things about collecting Pirates from the late 70's is that all the guys are affordable and still very active signers.
Now I need to get that Cole....
