Here’s something I’ve been meaning to post about for a while. Back in January, friend o ‘the blog Alex T. emailed telling me he had a line on a Dick Allen oddball set and asked if I wanted in. I sure did, and Alex helped me acquire one.
The main reason I have not posted about this set yet is that my collector gene made it tough for me to open up the wrapping! Opening takes the cards from “new” to “used”, for whatever that’s worth. But it’s not like I’m ever planning to sell off my Dick Allen collection, and like I was saying in my previous post, I’ve been trying to live in the moment more and whatnot, so screw it, time to finally free the cards from their pouch (but that shattered gum can remain individually sealed).
It’s a 7-card set and the photos focus on his early days in Philadelphia.
I really love these three that borrow their design from classic Topps sets. Even get a White Sox card out of it.
So there you have it. Super cool addition to one of my top PC guys.
Thanks to Mark for his part in creating them and kindly answering my questions, and thanks again to Alex for helping me snag a set.
Have a great weekend, everybody.
