I had a few free minutes yesterday so I stopped at the local Antiques and Collectibles Mall in south Knoxvegas. I was looking for a racing collectibles magazine. I found one, but that's another post. I did find the nickel box. Let's take a look at a few.
Tony, just a few years removed from managing in Knoxville.
Tony LarRussa (card # 402)
I was able to get four of the five checklists for that set. They are unmarked and really crisp. I don't need them, I just couldn't pass them up.
Checklist #1 (card # NNO-1)
Oh, there was a mess of Nolan Ryans. A mess of them, I tell you. And I got them all. I'm putting together a trade package for a Ryan collector. The early 1990s Pacific Ryan sets are goofy. Goofy, I tell you.

100th National League Win (card # 150)
I'd never seen the Conlon cards in anything other than a black border. There are 47 cards in this set, with various print runs and production years.

Hughie Jennings (card #25)
I'm not a fan of the 1986 Topps set. They phoned it in. Or faxed it in, maybe. But when I stumble across a signed Schrom, I can't get that nickel out of my pocket fast enough.
Ken Schrom (card # 71)
I picked up about 50 cards. I think that Nick would be proud.
