The National Sports Collectors Convention 2021...

 






I had a spectacular time at this years convention!  The previous 2 times attending (2017 and 2019) I only spent a day each time, but this year I spent 2 wonderful days sorting through $1 and dime boxes,  along with other miscellaneous boxes that caught my eye.   Also seeing all the cards in cases that are well out of my means, but still fun to look at, and you never know, one day it could happen.  The best part was meeting and chatting with the dealers and other hobbyists.  From here on out when I attend, I plan on minimum 2 days, possibly 3.  I have already started by savings plan.

Finally got to meet ....

Another Great Oddball Set ...

 I have added another great oddball set to the collection...

The 1991 Topps Babe Ruth movie set!


Stephen Lang played Babe Ruth, Pete Rose played  Ty Cobb, and Rod Carew was the baseball consultant for the movie.

This aired on October 6th 1991 on NBC.

The Chronicles of Fuji blog had brought this set to my attention.  So I went to the place I know that carries a lot of different oddball sets/items, Fritsch Cards and they had it.

Now to try and find the movie some where.  Have not found it yet.  Let me know if anyone out there knows where to look.

Thanks for looking
