I've got a few new Rollies coming in.  Especially with Tribute and now Gypsy Queen coming out and the ole Rollster being included in both sets.

I got this in the mail the other day.

For those of you who don't know what this is it's a 1982 Squirt Bottle card.  With the hole intacted Squirt actually had two series of these.  One in 1981 and again in 1982.  The '82's came in double and singles.  I also have some Reggie Jackson single bottle toppers.

This card also reminds me of another great 82 card.


What's great about the Squirt card is it's a great premonition of things to come and if Rollie hadn't gotten hurt at the end of the 82 season these two firemen would have met in the 82 World Series.

It's also interesting that Topps used the same photo for Rollie on both the Squirt card and 81 Leading Relievers card, not so for Sutter.  The Squirt photo of Sutter makes him look like a young Kenny Rodgers.

cb out.
