Penny Box Paradise Pt 3

Here's the last of my great penny box pickups! 


Tsk tsk tsk, don't slide into first, Lenny. 



Home run or popup? 




The stove-pipe hats didn't look good on everyone.







He spawned the devil.



Sick shades bro.


Unchecked checklist for a penny




RIP Splitty

Shorter All Star than Jose Altuve








I wish GMDM could pull off trades like this.

Penny Box Paradise Pt 2

As I work on packing my house and finding a job, enjoy some baseball cards I found in the best penny box ever! 


Sal Bando had 118 walks in 1970 leading to a .263/.407/.430 season. Such an underrated player.

Let's play GUESS THAT STADIUM
Any guesses?

This one's pretty easy.



1983 was a good year for nerdy white athletes and their glasses...







The former Seattle Pilots starter was past his prime by this time, but still a big part of the late 70's Royals success.

I'd be sad if Mike Hargrove never got another chance to manage a team.

Gene pitched in 931 games good for 21st of all time. He was 20th of all time until he was passed by current Rockies closer Latroy Hawkins.

Vern's 2.2192 BB/9 ratio is good for 168th all time among pitchers with more than 1000 IP. I'm really reaching here. Thank goodness for Baseball Reference.


"At first I was all like..."
"... and then I was all like."



See any you need? Claim 'em! I won't be able to ship for a few weeks, but all non-Padres are up for grabs.
