We all experienced this. You buy a pack of cards and it seemed that in almost every pack you would get the same guy over and over and over but you could never get a Hank Aaron, Lou Brock or Pete Rose card?

Just to lighten it up and think about some good times who were those guys/cards for you?

I am telling you Mike Lum was in every pack I opened in 1974.

I can still picture Randy Jones' afro from 1977 too.

I have close to 35 Joey Meyer Future Stars cards 1988 I believe (he does hold the record for longest homerun in professional baseball history...so the card has to be worth something)

I have over 10,000 BJ Surhoff rookie cards here at the office.

Course, we bought a case of his rookie cards way back when, so every card was actually his. Does that count?

In the 60's/70's it was Wayne Causey and Don Mincher.


Doubtful anyone ever heard of them.

Remember them both.

I believe Causey was the precursor for Bert "Campy" Camperneris for the A's.

Mincher platooned at 1st base for the Minnesota Twins with Vic Power. Back in the days (1960's) of Killebrew, Bob Allison, Tony Oliva, Jimmy Hall, Earl Battey, Zoilo Versalles, Rich Rollins, Bernie Allen, Billy Martin, Jim Kaat , Camillo Pasqual, et al.

I will 2nd Don Mincher
I think I had a dozen of them back in the 60's
Had quite a few of Johnny Logan too

Somehow all my cards got thrown out when I was a senior in high school
My parents divorced and my sister moved out and on to college
To this day, I cant figure out how or why my stuff was gone thru
I was chasing girls and playing sports and sort of forgot about them
Looked for them when I moved all my stuff out after college and dental school
I guess ultimately it was my fault but no one fesses up to this day that they tossed them
My sister's Barbie dolls got tossed too, so there is some justice
She still barks about that to this day

My old man had the same thing happen - when he came back from WWII, his cards
were all gone - his parents had sold the farm and moved into town
Boy, would I have loved to have the cards he collected in the 20's, 30's and 40's
