Re: Baseball Cards and Their True Value
I remember getting my first pack of cards in the spring of '72. I think they were 10 or 15 cents per pack. I got Bench, Fisk, and Ken Singleton in my first pack. Probably should have stopped collecting right there, because it doesn't get much better than that!
I got a kick out of the writers' recollections about various obscure players who are only remembered because the writer had "doubles" of them. How come you never got doubles of the really good players? How come I got doubles of Bob Montgomery and Tito Fuentes--why not Morgan, Foster, and Bench?
