A 1970 Rod Carew for a ten cent piece. It has a slight crease. The corners aren't the best. There is a fading. But it is a Rod Carew. A Hall of Famer. A first ballot Hall of Famer. For a dime!
How about a card of a speedy prospect for a dime as well?
I'm not a Ryan Garko fan at all. I just grabbed this one because I liked the picture. Specifically, I liked how the Metrodome's distinctive right-field wall looms behind Ryan. It contrasts greatly with a player readying for batting practice. My only complaint - Ryan's not a lefty. Still, this is a nice hidden gem of a card picture.
I picked up a Robbie Alomar Mets card. I might as well get a second card of a guy that I want to forget about concerning his time at Shea.
A couple of Red Sox Diamond Kings.
A prospects card of beloved Blue Jay Ernie Whitt? Sure. It can suffice until the 1978 rookie card gets here from the COMC Black Friday sale.
