Then there was my own collection - the likes of which I have seen many times. My own set included most the cards from 69-79, when my mom made me sell.
My older brother has never truly forgiven me. Especially since the card we had Ted Williams sign as a manager of the Washington Senators was included as a stipulation of the "sale."
Where exactly were you when this sale by your mom took place? In college? In the service? You must not have still been living at home, right? Otherwise she never would have attempted to do this.
