Funny Baseball Cards
I currently have about 15,000 cards in my baseball card collection. I have a least one card from every year from 1968 to 1995.
The oldest card in my collection is a 1968 Al Weis card. Al played a major role for the 1969 Miracle Mets in the World Series. In Game 2 his 9th-inning single drove in the winning run in a 2-1 victory. In the clincher, Game 5 at Shea Stadium, he homered off McNally in the seventh inning to tie the game at 3-3. The Mets scored two runs in the eighth to complete their improbable World Series victory.
I started purchasing card packs in 1978. This set had a game on the back called “PLAY BALL. Played by two”. The instructions were as follows:
Player has 50 player cards. Toss coin for who goes first. First player turns cards over one at a time. Attempting to score runs until 3 outs have been made. After 3 outs, second player begins. Game is played with 9 innings. In case of tie, play extra innings.
If you turned up Paul Blair’s baseball card you would have a home run.
I always thought Mark McGwire’s United Stated Baseball Team rookie card would be worth a lot some day but its value has likely taken a major hit since the steroid scandal. I have four of these cards. I also found a couple
Barry Bonds rookie cards.
