Well wouldn't you know Drew made good on his trade promise, and sent me over an impressive package of cards, including a bunch of vintage goodness.
I'll start out with the Boogs...
1975 Topps Boog Powell
This shot was actually taken in between innings. Boog is trying to catch a hot dog in his mouth that was tossed down from the upper deck.
1973 Topps Boog Powell
1968 Topps Boog Powell
1969 Topps Deckle Boog Powell
And now some Belangers...
1975 Topps Mark Belanger
1969 Topps Mark Belanger
1970 Topps Mark Belanger
Some other random vintage...
1973 Topps Johnny Oates
1972 Topps A.L ERA Leaders Jim Palmer
1975 Topps Don Hood
1975 Topps Tommy Davis
2009 Topps Chrome Michael Oher refractor
How does this guy not have a million rookie autos in every football release? I don't care if he's a lineman, there making a movie about the kid for Matt Wieters sake! It's not like he was a first round pick or anything...
2007 Topps Willis McGahee Pro Bowl jersey
It's pretty cool to own a slice of Pro Bowl jersey, even if it's from a Willis McGahee jersey. This must have been from the Injury Pro(ne) Bowl. When is is healthy though, Willis is capable of putting up big numbers.
2009 Upper Deck Philadelphia Dwayne Bowe autograph
This was the card I coveted above all others. Bowe is an absolute beast of a man, and if can escape woeful Kansas City, could have a very prolific career. There were some trade rumblings about him becoming a Raven last month. Wishful thinking I guess.
2009 Topps Ravens Cheerleader Amanda
And the Bird!
