I did not have a chance to pick up my mail for several days. And so when I got to the office Monday morning, I had a pile of packages. I wish every day could be like that. And away we go:
Up first is a real old vintage card that I picked up on Ebay for cheap after doing the pre-WWII portion of my wantlist. I wanted to see if I could find something for less than $10.00 and I did:
This is a 1919-1921 W514 card of Everett Scott, the terrific defensive shortstop for the Red Sox in the late 1910's/early 1920's. Scott was not much of a hitter, but his defense was far and away better than other shortstops of the time period. The artwork leaves a little something to be desired here, I am not sure how close it is to looking like Scott, but I am not going to turn down a card this old. That is likely to be my next big project is picking up as many cheap, pre-WWII cards I can find.
Up next are a couple of Heritage cards of pitchers currently with the team:
The next several scans are the 2016 and 2015 Topps mini cards and I am not going to go into detail. This post is long enough as it is. The first card is the red parallel of Koji Uehara and it is serial numbered to just five. It is also the primary reason I worked out this deal.
