Flashback Friday: 70’s Style

Just a quick post of a nice mail day today. Picked up some rookie cards for my 1970’s vintage album — all for just a little more than a 2017 Topps retail blaster box!

In the batch we have — outside of Johnny Bench — the three other great catchers of the decade in Munson (1970 Topps), Simmons (1971), and Fisk (1972). A couple of Hall of Fame pitchers in Blyleven (1971) and Gossage (1973) and a Red Sox Hall of Famer, a guy that is just outside of the Cooperstown Hall of Fame, and long time Sox favorite … Dwight “Dewey” Evans (1973). Also of note on Evan’s rookie is that of Alonza, or more commonly known Al, Bumbry, who was the 1973 American League Rookie of the Year. Enjoy this groovy Flashback Friday …..

  1. Wow, a nice lot there. I can’t believe I still don’t own the Fisk or Evans RCs. I should probably try to remedy that soon. I’d take that over a 2017 Topps blaster any day.
