Throwing in the towel

I'm not quitting the blog, if that's what you were thinking.  I just got this stuffed package from the Junior Junkie and had to show off the contents.  Starting with this towel card.

It's not often you see a card where a guy has a towel over his shoulder, but this 1988 Fleer gem of Charlie Hough features just such a picture.  The Junkie included the entire Texas Rangers 1988 Fleer team set.  If you didn't see his post about going to the post office and spending nearly $180 on shipping, just go here.

Like last night's post, I picked up another of those 2015 Topps Original Stamp cards.  This one is a Doyle Alexander, one of my favorite 1970's Rangers.  I always thought he looked like he would fit in with the gunfight at the OK Corral.

Here's a horrible picture of a Rafael Palmeiro Piece of the Action Bat Card.  I do like his uniform number cut into the bat sliver.  Or table leg, whichever it might be.

There was a big stack of cards to choose from, but my favorite of the bunch was this 2004 Topps Finest Michael Young refractor. So shiny and fun.

Thanks for the cards Junkie.

  1. It was a little tough letting go of that Doyle, but I figured it belonged with you!
