August Group Break: A's & Giants

Yes, last night's Earthquake! hint was a reference to the 1989 World Series between the Athletics and Giants. Let's see if either of these two teams score, or if it's just another natural disaster.

Team: A's
Buyer: indianaland potch
Cards of Interest: Oakland is a great team to pick up randomly. Nice long history, but you just have to not mind the lack of current superstars.
1972 Topps #241 Rollie Fingers
Pre-'stache Oakland Rollie looks like someone who got beat up on a regular basis. Great card!

1992 Leaf #474 Rich Gossage
How about two HOF relievers?

2011 Topps Heritage #C66 Bobby Cramer Chrome (0882/1962)

Team: Giants
Buyer: Cheap Card Collecting
Cards of Interest: Well, I got plenty of cheap cards, but a few nice ones, too.
2009 Obak #15 Buster Posey Mini

2010 Topps Chrome #27 Tim Lincecum Refractor
Cool, cool card.

2011 Topps Heritage #232 Giants Win Opener
Yes, just a base card, but if the Giants are your team, owning a card like this is the type of thing you dream about.

Up next: The stars at night, are big and bright...
