New items and direction for my collection - unopened racks from the 70’s
Happy New Year everyone. There have been some great pickups on the December and January posts, and like I mentioned in the 2019 goals thread I am adding some new items and focus to my collecting. For the last few years I have been picking up Mantle's primarily along with other HOF cards like Aaron, Mays, Bench, and Ryan.
Been looking at picking up some nice 70’s racks with stars/rookies showing after seeing some neat ones at the National along with some late 60’s/early 70’s PSA wax packs. A couple of weeks ago I was able to pick up privately a really nice 75 rack, and then within 10 days I was offered another one and then another one. Missed on a 4th. Really excited to find the 75 racks, and probably going to try and add a 78 rack with Murray on top, a 79 rack with Ozzie on top. Would love to find a 74 rack with Ryan on top, a 75 rack with Aaron on top, and a 76 with Bench on top - basically any rack from 68 -77 with Bench on top is on the list.
Below are the recent pickups:
75 Brett rookie in top, 75 Bench in middle rack, 75 Lynn rookie on top and Nolan Ryan on bottom of the pack.
