Pull the Trigger 6.7 ($20)

A few more cards for the pile...

Three 1978 Topps Cards

You may remember the Foster/Rice card from days of Thorzul's past, that time when I somehow acquitted twenty-something copies of the card. I got rid of those, but along the way came across two more, and here they are. Whoever claims the lot also gets #3 Willie McCovey '77 Record Breaker. The record he broke that year? Hitting two home runs in an inning for the second time in his career. Since the feat, it has been duplicated, but never surpassed. Andre Dawson did it in 1978 and 1985, Alex Rodriguez in '07 and '09, and the Pirates' Jeff King tied the record in back-to-back seasons in 1995 and '96. With Arod's playing status currently unclear, it appears likely that it will be some time before anyone remotely threatens the record. However, it's one of those circumstantial baseball records that could just happen on consecutive nights as a total anomaly.

Commit your twenty dollars to claim those cards, as well as everything seen below.
