Thrift Treasures Part XVIII: A Topps Giant Leap for mankind

I’m getting spoiled. I’ve found a bunch of cards at thrift stores in recent weeks and the price poins has been just amazing. Here for $2 I snagged a baker’s dozen of 1964 Topps Giant cards and nine Baseball’s Great Hall of Fame post cards.

Max Alvis, Milt Pappas and Ron Santo

  1. Wow, that’s a great haul for $2. I don’t suppose you’d be interested in trading that Ron Santo? Or, hell, I’d mail you $2 for it.
