I snagged another Listia lot the other day and shortly after the cards arrived. I won the lot for 555 credits, which might be a little much, but I'm pretty happy with my new cards.
Behold! 1982 TCMA Baseball Greatest Pitchers Set!
Naturally, a pair Chicago Cubs were the main impetus for me bidding on this particular lot! Three Finger Brown! I don't have too many cards that feature old Mordecai (his given name), so this was truly a welcome addition.
Grover Cleveland Alexander, better known as Pete, was a Cub for nine seasons, but pitched his best ball for Philadelphia.
Joe McGinnity, know as the Iron Man, was best known as a New York Giant.
Juan Marichal pitched for the San Francisco Giants some time after they moved from New York.
Eppa Rixey? I must admit, I knew nothing about Mr. Rixey until after I flipped over his card and read the bio.
A fun lot five card lot and some potential trade bait for 2013. Happy Holidays, everyone!
