Vintage Red Sox

I already posted about the stack of ’72 Topps cards that Mark sent over, so now I get to show off the stack of vintage Red Sox he sent my way.


1973 Topps #165, Luis Aparicio

This is the only ’73 Topps card that I own, and it is a beauty. Any chance to own a vintage card of a hall of famer is great.


1972 Topps #199, Mike Fiore

This card, along with the 12 others from ’72 that Mark sent my way may cause me to start collecting this set.


#104, Gerald Moses
#361, Ray Jarvis

Mark sent along this battery from the 1970 Topps set. Both of these cards are in great shape and look great in my collection.  One of the interesting things about the Jarvis card is the color of the Red Sox lettering across the top of the card.  For some reason it is red, while the lettering on the Moses card is white.  Perhaps it has something to do with the numbering.


#114, Jim Gosger
#178, Bob Tillman

Here are two cards from the 1966 Topps set. These two cards are beautiful and are in great shape. The more I look at these cards, the less annoying I find the pink border.

#509, Bob Guindon and Gerry Vezendy

Mark was generous enough to include this 1965 Topps rookie card. I think Mark is secretly trying to get me hooked on collecting vintage cards, as I can think of no other reason why he would include it.


#6, Lou Clinton

Here is one from the 1963 Fleer set. This may be my favorite amongst these Red Sox vintage cards. The figure of the baseball player surrounded by yellow is a nice aspect to this card.


#540, Jackie Jensen

I want to find whoever this Cowan character is and go back in time and punch him in the face. This is a gorgeous card even with the ink.  From the 1961 Topps set, this card with its simplistic design is a nice departure from some of the busier designs that Topps puts out.
Mark, these cards are awesome and much appreciated.

    Nothing wrong with collecting vintage. That 72 set is a killer… Huge set with lots of tough hi numbers. I have another small stack already started for the next mailing. Have to take care of fellow Sox collectors
