Three More Rookies for the Book

This past weekend I was able to once again sell some of my "digital" star wars cards for a decent price. In turn, I was able to add the three cards below to my collection for free! I now have twelve of the forty cards for my rookie book project.

1972 Topps Carlton Fisk

1983 Topps Ryne Sandberg

1986 Texas Gold Reds Set

27 cards total: Pete Rose, Pete Rose, Pete Rose, Reds Coaches (Scherger, Kimm, DeMars, Helms, Breeden, Lett), Eddie Milner, Tom Browning, Tony Perez, Bill Gullickson, Ron Robinson, John Franco, Eric Davis, Kal Daniels, Tracy Jones, Joe Price, Mario Soto, Dave Parker, John Denny, Ted Power, Chris Welsh, Kurt Stillwell, Bo Diaz, Ron Oester, Buddy Bell, Max Venable, Sal Butera, Dave Concepcion, Nick Esasky

Before Kahn's started sponsoring the Reds baseball card sets, Texas Gold made its first and only entry by sponsoring the 1986 Reds set. Kahn's would go on to sponsor the Reds baseball card sets from 1987-2010 with a brief interruption in 2011 when Thompson Plumbing would sponsor the set that year. Kahn's would again sponsor the Reds baseball card sets from 2012 to present.

Turning the Imaginary into Reality!

That's UNPOSSIBLE right? Well, thanks to the Topps Star Wars card trader app I was able to sell my white Hoth cards I acquired for free over time for the below cards that are the latest entries into my Rookie Book project. I can't spend money on digital cards, but if someone is willing to pay for my imaginary cards I'll be more than happy to take the cash and purchase actual cards for my collection.

1974 Topps Dave Winfield

1978 Topps Eddie Murray

1985 Topps Roger Clemens

1988 Fleer Tom Glavine

1988 Topps Traded Roberto Alomar
