A 1/1 Splurge


2017 Stadium Club Willie Stargell 1/1

I guess it is not too much of a splurge when it only cost $26, but that still represents a pretty significant single card purchase for me. When this card popped up on eBay I thought it would be cool to own, but I didn't think my high bid of $23 plus shipping would hold. Surprisingly my bid held up and I'm the proud owner of a cool new 1/1. 

As for the card itself I was happy to see such a unique card of Pops. While his last few Stadium Club cards have been great I feel this is the best yet. You know your cool when you wear your own toboggan. 

Bring back Stargell Stars!

    1. I was happy to get a pretty decent deal on this card. Not usually the type of cards I chase, but thought what the hell.

    1. Always kind of exciting when a unique one falls into your lap. Usually only plates are cheap

  3. Very cool. Reminds me of the Joe Namath JOE puff cap card.

  4. That had to be taken during the '79 World Series. That Series was cold as F.

    1. That makes sense. He looks super relaxed for being cold as shit. I guess Pops is just calm, cool and collected.

    1. Mine too. Now they just need to make some better Cutch cards in that set. His are boring compared to other stars cards in Stadium Club.

    1. I'm sure the MLB wouldn't let them, but I'd be all for it.
