Christmas El Cheapo Group Break: AL Central

American League Central, for what it's worth.

Team: White Sox
Buyer: Thorzul
No vintage Sox here, but there was an interesting trio of Big Hurt inserts.
2000 Upper Deck Black Diamond Diamond Might #M3 Frank Thomas, 1992 Fleer/7-11/Citgo The Performer Collection #2 Frank Thomas, 1998 Pinnacle Epix Moment #E7 Frank Thomas
The Performer Collection was a 24-card set given away at the aforementioned gas station/convenience store. They chose a blue color to set it apart from the green of the base set, but I think it's still to similar.

Team: Indians
Buyer: Thorzul
1971 Topps #24 Rich Hand
Yesterday we had Dick Green, today, Rich Hand. So I suppose if your hand was green, we know where it's been.

There were no other good Indians cards, so I'll share this nice 1987 Hygrade All-Time Greats Bob Feller. There were a bunch of these in the lot.


Team: Royals
Buyer: The Diamond King
1982 Topps Squirt #10 Dennis Leonard
This card is refreshing, and it goes great with the distilled spirit of your choice.

1971 Topps #91 Bob Lemon, #221 Dave Morehead

2007 Donruss Elite Extra Edition Die-Cut #18 Derrick Robinson (009/100)


Team: Twins
Buyer: FanOfReds
1971 Topps #74 Pete Hamm/Jim Nettles, #127 Danny Thompson
Nothing special here, nothing to see, move along.

1971 Topps #26 Bert Blyleven
Whoa, 90/10 centering aside, that's a rookie card of a Hall-of-Famer. Nice pull!

To cleanse the palette, here's a 2009 Topps 206 Mini 3281 Joe Mauer. So he got engaged earlier this week. A lot about that surprises me.


Team: Tigers
Buyer: Thorzul
1971 Topps #208 Billy Martin, #133Mickey Lolich, #101 Les Cain
So I'm guessing you might pay a premium for 1971 Topps cards in mint condition. I like my cards with character, though. Speaking of characters, Billy's cap has a "D" on it on the back photo, but not on the front. I wonder why?

2003 Donruss Classics Membership #M12 Ty Cobb (1574/2500)

Up next: Wagons... east!
