Earlier this week I saw a blog post with a caption that read "I live my life 2.5 x 3.5 inches at a time". As a fan of the Fast & Furious movie franchise, I loved this quote. How awesome is it that someone can take a quote from a movie and relate it to your favorite hobby? Of course the 2.5 x 3.5 inches refers to the size of a standard baseball card. Earlier this week I received a trade package from Justin at Mets Cardboard that supports this quote, but also adds a footnote to it.
These 1971 Topps cards are in pretty good shape. A little corner wear, but otherwise great shape for being over 40 years old. The Cardinals were not very good during the 1970s, but did have some household names like Brock, Gibson, and Schoendienst.
It was very easy to work out a trade with Justin. He uses Zistle for his wantlist and tradelist. I do not have a Zistle account, but may have to consider one after this trade. Thanks Justin!
