The 1982's and a 83 for Good Measure

Yesterday was a great card day.  I got a ton of stuff in the mail.  I got a bunch of 2008 Allen and Ginter picks to help finish my set and I also got a nice lot of Rollie cards.  I also got a lot of 1983 Donruss Action All-Stars with Robin Yount on top.  I only opened one pack because this card was on the back.

Rollie looks like he's about to sing. 

But here is a collection of his 1982 cards.
Donruss first.

Nice card.  I really like the early 80's Donruss. Simple and clean.

Here is the Fleer.

Not a huge fan of this set.  A lot of the pictures are blurry and not composed well.
The 81 Fleer is a much better set.

And lastly all three of Rollies 1982 Topps cards.

This last card almost deserves a post of it's own.  I think I would call it Mustach vs. Beard.  Rollie Wins but damn look at Sutters soup catcher.  Looks more like Grizzly Adams than a St Louisr reliever. 

Another reason why I like the 82's is that this is the year that Rollie help take the Brewers to their one and only World Series Appearance.

You never know what you might find.

Was digging through a box of cards today and posted a bunch of finds at Collector's Crack

But this one goes up here all by itself.  I was sorting out my Brewers from the box to there own shoebox of glory when I came upon this card to go in it's own shoebox.  Ever the player collector I guess. 

Yeah, It's a 1975 Hostess Card!! Not incredibly well cut but nice and clean.

And did you know that Rollie's middle name is Glen?

Score one for the shoebox.

Mustach Envy

Hello All,
Well to start the almost new year off right I've decided to expound my blogging to include at least 2 if not 3 new player card blogs.  And of course if your reading this you know from the title that this one if about Rollie Fingers.

I mean just look at that 'stash.  I have stash envy all over.  So this isn't just about the 4 years he pitched with the Brewers.  Nope this is dedicated to the man, his whole career and his cards.  So here are a few I just pulled out so liven up the blog the first is a 2001 Brewers Walk of Fame Norstan card.  I think these were given out at the stadium, don't really know.

The second card is a classic 1984 Gardners Bakeries Topps Card.  Here's Rollie with all his mustachy goodness in a great pose in a brewers uniform. 

Series II no less.

well until I get a hankeren for more Rollie check out my other blogs over at http://www.theyountcollector.blogspot.com/ and http://www.collectorscrack.blogspot.com/ both full of useless info, images and rants.  Until next time.
