Up For Grabs: Tom Terrific
I've got Tom Seaver cards and you want them! Well, at least the first part may be true. Tom Terrific is next up on my list of players that I'm clearing out of my old binders. As always, the full list of cards available follows at the end of this post.
I miss Stadium Club. Can Topps bring back a non-gimmicked Stadium Club soon? Please?
This one has a weird notchy thing in it which you can sort of see on the scan (near the upper left border.) Otherwise, it's in decent shape.
If this hadn't been such a maddeningly flimsy and easy to blemish set, I probably would have been interested in collecting it someday.
Members of a dying breed. 300 game winners are more or less extinct in today's game. I wonder if there will be a new adjusted benchmark for excellence or if people will finally realize that pitching wins are pretty arbitrary.
