I was quite happy to receive the PWE from Nick yesterday, as it contained a number of cards that I need either for my Brewers team collection or for my player collections.
This card of a guy who lasted with the Brewers for a grand total of 15 games in 1972 and 1973 is also one that I needed for my Topps 1973 Brewers set.
These six oddballs all go into my Brewers team collections for those years. I'd picked up the Drake's cards in a team set purchase on eBay a couple of months ago, but all of them were needed for my "comprehensive" Brewers collection -- as was the big Prince.
|That's a Mini!|
Finally, these cards also went into my Brewers collection as first timers:
Betancourt was part of the Zach Greinke trade. McGehee is with Miami now. Bradley is hoping to become more than organizational fodder, as he is at Double-A Huntsville -- coincidentally, the city where he grew up -- this year after being drafted out of Georgia Tech in 2011.
Nick, thank you very much for the cards. They are greatly appreciated and were a pleasant surprise to me when I got my mail on Monday.
