$10 Scumbucket Grab Bag 3.4

Cal Ripken Trio


The Cal Ripken Trio was the darling of the underground folk scene of the 1990s, but when they made it big with their first commercial hit, "Passing Lou," fans began to turn their backs on the band. All that's left are the memories.

Whoever pulls the trigger on this bucket will receive at least ten of the same baseball card from the 1970s. Use these as you wish. Fill up one Ultra Pro page (and them some). Get a head start on a nice kitchen backsplash. Impress a blind date. I don't care, just so long as you have fun with it. Ten bucks is a small price to pay for such joy.

Admirable Autographs #5

#5 Ken Sanders - Milwaukee Brewers


Ken Sanders is often cited by baseball historians as one of the few bright spots during the Brewers' overall dismal inaugural 1970 season. Sanders saved 13 games in 1970, and followed that up with 31 more the next year. Topps lists his '70 ERA as 1.74, but most of today's sources have it at 1.75. Still, a beacon of hope for what was a very bad team.

This is the 1971 Topps card from my personal collection. As you can see, the signature has stayed consistent through the years. The squiggly capital E's mid-word are especially great.


I believe this autograph was obtained at the aforementioned Lombardi Classic. Sanders will turn 77 this July.

Let's check in on these guys. First, there's Paredes. He played for the Astros, Royals, Orioles, Blue Jays, and Phillies between 2011 and 2016, and is credited with a career negative 1.6 WAR. Bronson, on the other hand, was not a success, never advancing past AAA in the Nationals organization and leaving baseball after the 2011 season. But hey, you get two of him to make up for it.

So I was packaging the lot of cards for the buyer of Scumbucket #2 and I found this jersey card that I couldn't find earlier. Turns out it was in my paraphernalia box, the old shoebox in which I keep all sorts of top loaders and cases and stuff. How it got in there is anyone's guess, but now that it's safe and secure, it'll start off this next Grab Bag. Ten bucks and it's yours, but that would be awfully stupid. Just wait and see what gets added.

So yesterday I added that Triple Play jersey card. Turns out I can't find it at the moment, so I'm removing it from the bucket. Its replacement is a much better card, especially if you're into that whole Maddux-as-a-Padre scene.

Triple Play Authentic Jersey Card


"Authentic Baseball Jersey" is as non-committal as relic cards get. It would be like going to a restaurant and ordering something off the menu called "Food." I'm going to assume this was cut off of a 1927 Babe Ruth jersey, and not a 1996 Ken's Korner Pub Beer League softball jersey shoplifted from Goodwill.
