Post Card Show Pickups

I almost forgot to feature a couple of '67s that I picked up after the "card show" last week. I got them at my LCS. The owner allows me to keep a stack of vintage behind the counter and purchase what I can, when I can. It also makes it easy on him if my wife or other member of the family comes in looking for a gift. It sure beats dropping $20 on modern packs. Anyway, here they are:

1967 Topps Cardinals Team Card #173 - I'm not big on team cards, I admit it. Not enough detail for me. However one must have the team card to have a team set, so here it is. The Cardinals of course won the World Series in 1967 spurred on by the acquisition of Orlando Cepeda and Roger Maris during 1966.

1967 Topps Dave Ricketts #589 - Dave played six total seasons, five of those with the Cardinals. He was a backup catcher to Tim McCarver and a pinch hitter. He had one home run and 20 RBI's over his career. Interesting to note that 14 of those RBI's came in 1967. It's always nice when you can add a high number to your collection in this nice of shape. They get a little pricey; this one has a BV of $15.
