Anyone up for a Game?
Everyone likes to play games right? I didn\’t know about these 1968 Topps Game cards when I started collecting in 1981. I remember seeing some over the years, but didn\’t think much about them because they didn\’t look like anything I\’d ever seen.
Sources tell me they were issued as a 33 card set that came in complete boxed sets and were meant to be used to play a game. Now that I know more about them, I might need to complete the set. I picked up these four from my old LCS friend. They were just in a random box and I got them for practically nothing.
I can take a Giant in my collection if it\’s vintage. Or Will Clark. I do think it\’s appropriate that this Giant Mike McCormick is a Strike Out.
Good old Richie Allen is a Line Out with runners unable to advance!
My man Al Kaline at least brought the runner home!
Of course, I had to have these when I saw Carl Yastrzemski. Yaz was one of the players I collected early on because he was a well established star when I started. He looks so young there!
When I get around to updating my want lists, I\’ll add this set to it. It should be another fun one to go after.
