A Few Old, A Few New
My latest trade package contained wantlist hits that ranged from 1971 to 2005. A member from the Bench needed a 2013 Triple Threads Jose Abreu card #ed to 99. It was nice of him to trade vintage cards for a modern one. I know some traders will not do that, and I cannot blame them.
These two Torre cards are in great shape. The 1973 on the left is almost mint, while the 1972 Topps card is not far behind. Torre played for the Cardinals from 1969-1974. He was an All Star four of those years, and won the MVP in 1971. He also served as the manager from 1990-1995. He was elected into the Cardinals Hall of Fame last year.
