Totally Awesome $40 Card Lot: Part 10 -- The Finale

I've stretched it out long enough. At last, the final installment of the Totally Awesome $40 Card Lot.

This first thing's not one of my favorite items, but it didn't really fit in anywhere else. Keeping with the theme of the massive amounts of Braves and Dodgers present, here's a Sandy Koufax postcard from some point in the 1970s. I found another copy of it online shortly after opening up the lot, but I can't now. There are no markings other than the name, so its place in history is anybody's guess.

The real star of this post, and the entire lot, is this final item. The pièce de résistance, if you will.

2001 Fleer Greats of the Game Bob Gibson AUTO

Okay, think back. This lot had all that vintage, all those Braves and Dodgers (which went to Night Owl and for which I received some cards that I need to post... sorry), all them Jeters, some nice Milwaukee Braves, some partial sets, and even that old All Star ballot. Got all that in your head? Well, do you think we really needed to add anything else to get up to the $40 cost. Nah, but an on-card autograph of one of the baddest mofos ever to stand 60' 6" away from one pants-pisser after another is some nice icing on the cake.

Thorzul FTW!
