10/27 Mailday: Munson 2nd year and more

For the first time in ages, I made a trade with a good friend of mine from The Bench, a moderator, Pat, who goes by the handle “pltcards.” Pat has been my most frequent trading partner over the past 4 years or so. Every trade with him has been a pleasure and has also had some very nice cards being exchanged. This time, I traded a football lot which included a Matt Ryan autographed Rookie Premiere Materials from Absolute Memorabilia, an Eddie Royal RPM prime, and a whole bunch of other Steelers and Giants cards. In return, I picked up this:
A 1971 Topps Thurman Munson. Ok, so the condition’s a bit rough and the centering sucks, it’s still pretty cool to me! As a Yankee fan, this one’s going into the PC for sure! The second card, however, will not be headed there and will be available for trade:
For those interested, it is a 2006 UD Sweet Spot Update Bat Barrel Black Ink #123 (RC), numbered to 35 on the front. It’s a great card, but I think it’d be more appreciated elsewhere so if you’re interested, leave a comment here or shoot an email to jhollod@hotmail.com. Thanks for reading and thanks again to Pat for the trade. Boom…..outta here (will they clinch tonight?)

  2. Wow, if you ask me, you got a steal with that Munson. It’s actually in pretty good shape for the year it is and the reputation that set has. I collect 71 Topps and that cards been on my wish list for a looooong time.

  3. Thanks night owl! He gave me a break due to condition, about half of the NRMT price. I didn’t realize how hard it was to find 71’s in good shape.
