Not the most creative title. Just showing off some random stuff.
I bought this card for a dollar when I was about 10 or so. It was in one of those local mall shows that rarely happen anymore. Still have the card all these years later. I'm have this card, the Mantle and the Phillies team set. One day I'll complete the rest of 1955 Bowman. One of my favorite vintage sets.
Check out the power on this card. Bo Jackson, Ruben Sierra and Mark McGwire. As far as I know Bo never took steroids but he destroyed his hip playing football. I watched that 30 for 30 on him and they showed how his entire hip popped out and he just kind of kept running. Sierra who knows, but McGwire "Let's not talk about the past" all but admitted he took quite a bit of Andro to hit all those home runs. I enjoyed 1998 as much as the next guy but it's a shame the way its looked back on now even though it really brought back baseball after the 1994 strike.
A Phillies great 1969 Topps Richie Allen. He had quite a solid career. In 1996 he received 18% of the hall of fame vote.Good enough to get a mention in the Hall of Very good, just not quite good enough to get into Cooperstown. His most similar hitter is one of the Killer B's, Lance Berkman. According to baseball reference his highest yearly salary was 200K a year. Thats less then the league mininum now. Crazy!
