Topps high numbers from the 60's-70's are some of the most difficult cards to get to complete my team sets. Don't get me wrong, there a plenty out there to be had I just don't have the budget to spend on them, and more often than not, they come at a premium.
That's why getting three high numbered cards from Wrigley Wax was such a joy.
1972 #672 Archie Reynolds with #689 Eddie Fisher and 1970 #720 Rick Reichardt.
Classic Topps crooked background on Reynolds card.
In my mind, high numbers would be hard to let go of but I think that if I had any a fellow collector needed I'd do the same as Wrigley Wax did for me.
A fellow SCN member reached out to me for a trade. He asked about a card I had available on my trade list. I countered asking about his 1991 Topps Archives 1953 Topps card signed by Joe Nuxhall. I have many cards in that set signed already but not Nuxies (plus, Nuxhall played for the Angels so it's a double score). We agreed, and there you have it.
I am a recipient of Jaybarkerfans Summer of Giving! And so glad to be. I was seeing so many posts attesting to the generosity of Jaybarkerfan, and was wondering, hoping in anticipation that maybe I too would get to partake. And then my package arrived. And boy did I ever partake.
