Today at the card show i had saved up some money and had a nice size of cash to blow….. Always bring cash to the shows, cause you can always get the price down with cash money….. Anyways last time i was there i picked up a sweet Jim Palmer ball for a great price, well the same guy was there again and i bought in total 6 balls from him dirt cheap. Here the first two….Bill Madlock i had to get the two becuase one was the 1975 All Star MVP and the other was the 4 x batting champs with the years…. Great balls to add to my collection, which i’ll be doing a post about real soon!! Enjoy the pic!
Did some shopping last week on line, today in the mail was my package from COMC….. Here are my goodies!! The Troll turned me on to this set and little by little i’ve been pecking away at it…. In no time i’ll have it done!
Next up is more set help for my 1968 set i’m puting together….. The Eddie was a great pick up at a great price….. If any of you have any 68′ cards i will trade for them, just leave me a comment….
And here you have my boy Dontrelle Willis….. Just some more cards to add to the PC….. To dat i have over a 1,000 D-Train cards….Yay,me!
Also picked up the Bill Madlock cards and the Al Oliver cards you’ll se next!! Wicked Out!!
In doing some reading on players i came across Bill Madlock…… And i have to say this guy was a “Maddog” on the field. Madlock also had a fiery temper, and was involved in several incidents that exemplified it…..In 1980 Madlock’s average dropped to .277 as the Pirates finished third in the National League East, eight games behind the eventual World Champion Philadelphia Phillies. For Madlock, the season became infamous for an incident during a May 1 game against the Montreal Expos at Three Rivers Stadium. Madlock poked umpire Jerry Crawford in the face with his glove after being called out on strikes with the bases loaded. National League President Chub Feeney fined Madlock $5,000 and suspended him 15 games. Madlock appealed the suspension and remained in uniform before finally serving the suspension on June 6, after National League umpires threatened to eject him from every game he tried to play in.As a player, Madlock was ejected from 18 games.
But he was a 3 x All-Star, MVP of the 1975 All-Star Game, a World Champ in 79′ and Led the National League in battin average in 1975, 1976, 1981 and 1983…..So this is why i taught i pick up a few of his cards to have in my collection….
