I started collecting baseball cards in the late 1960's, but got out about a dozen, or so, years ago. I'm looking to get back into collecting again, but my focus will be the Detroit Tigers exclusively, with one exception...this years Topps cards...I turned 50 this year, so I want to collect the entire 2010 Topps Baseball set, and I want to try and put together as much of the 196o Topps set as possible...I was born in Feb. of '60 in Kalamazoo.
I loved Bill Freehan, the Tigers All-Star catcher of the mid '60's to mid '70's...even though I have every regular issue Topps Freehan card, I am always looking to add to my collection.
The 1973 Freehan card shown above is my favorite because if you look closely Freehan's trying to tag the runner out...but the ball is in his right hand.
Freehan's RC is 1963 Topps #466. It's never moved in price...$60.00
I would love to talk Tigers baseball cards, about the Tigers 2010 team, or just baseball, and baseball catd collecting in general.
Until next time, take care, and God Bless.
