In 1968 i wasn’t even born yet, but allot of stuff was happening….. The Packers had won Super Bowl 2, Martin Luther King, Jr. was shot dead at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tennessee. Riots erupt in major American cities for several days afterward….. The Beatles announce the creation of Apple Records in a New York press conference…..U.S. presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy is shot at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles, California by Sirhan Sirhan. Kennedy dies from his injuries the next day……….60 Minutes debuts on CBS…….The Heidi game: NBC cuts off the final 1:05 of an Oakland Raiders–New York Jets football game to broadcast the pre-scheduled Heidi. Fans are unable to see Oakland (which had been trailing 32–29) score 2 late touchdowns to win 43–32; as a result, thousands of outraged football fans flood the NBC switchboards to protest……..And the Detroit Tigers win the 1968 World Series, defeating the St. Louis Cardinals 4 games to 3.
Crazy year i tell ya…. Anyways here’s how the idea of going after this years baseball card set happened…. It all started with Andruw Jones… The Capt. up in the really cold North saw a post about a AJ jersey i had bought at my local card shop…. He left a comment about how great the jersey was and i emailed him make me an offer, cause around here everything is up for grabs… I’ve seen first born names being thrown around…. Anyways the offer was made and the deal was on…. The jersey for a starter set of 1968 Topps baseball cards… 150 total cards…. Sold!! The reason the jersey was bought was because the price was right and i knew somewhere it would be wanted more than in my house…. So the other day in the mail i got a package from the Capt. himself and in it was my part of the deal, 150 1968 Topps baseball cards plus a little somethang extra the Capt. threw in…..
A huge thank you to the Capt. again don’t worry homie your jersey plus a ton of other stuff will be leaving my house for the great north on Friday with a bunch of other packages from my homies out there….If anyone has any 1968 topps cards please feel free to hit me up and email me….. I have lots of autos and game used card up for trade…. Thanks again!!
