This post is sort of an addendum to yesterday. When I received 17 PWE's on the same day I had originally assumed that they were all from Wes. It turns out two were from Peter Steinberg (Baseball Every Night). I jokingly dubbed him Benedict Steinberg, but Peter's envelopes had two great cards with one being a white whale.
I love collecting Pirates from the mid to late 90's. Some really obscure parallels exist during this time so I've made it a project of mine of focusing on a set or two at a time and seeing what damage I can do. Several of these cards including the Martin above make the white whale list because they can be sneaky hard to secure. As most of you know parallels /150 in the 90's are not the same as they are now.
Although you have joined the dark side Peter I do thank you for helping me out here. You are the most generous Sylvia Plath expert I know.
Thanks for reading.
The Action Packed card is gorgeous. The Al Martin card? Not a very flattering shot...ReplyDelete
Ha ha. I hadn't noticed that particularly until I saw the scan. The card in person... his bum's less noticeable, I think!Delete
My pleasure Matt! I've been having fun with this, and it's stress relief from my Plathian ventures in a way, to look around.ReplyDelete
Blogging is always a nice distraction for me too. Normal workday stuff sucksDelete
Down to just 5 cards on the most wanted (white whale)list.ReplyDelete
Getting there! This list has taken a while, but definitely picking up steam the last few weeks. The last 5 will be toughDelete
Nice! Stadium Club one of a kinds are a pain.ReplyDelete
Yeah, they hit auction a decent amount...but the shipping is usually more than the card is worth.Delete
Congratulations on acquiring the whale. As for that Clemente... it's so cool. Action Packed baseball just doesn't receive the hobby love it deserves.ReplyDelete
Peter has been on a roll finding whale cards for me.Delete
