I'm in New York City this week attending my aunt's funeral (2019 has not been a good year so far). I have a few posts scheduled. I hope they make it because I won't be checking in very often.
The pic below is the latest 'display' piece in my collection. I've always had a soft spot for expansion teams, particularly the Pilots and Expos. Jim Bouton's Ball Four was my connection to the Pilots and a family trip to Montreal in 1969 during which we took in a game at Parc Jarry was one of the memorable vacations we experienced. I'll never forget my Dad trying to get restaurant recommendations from a group of French-speaking firemen at a fire station across from our hotel. Good times!
I thought this was a fun little item and was happy to win the auction. I'll probably keep it on the top of my two-level desk and use it for paper clips or something. The Bob Bailey card is there for perspective.
Speaking of the Expos, I won a small oddball set a few months ago that I still haven't scanned. I'll get that posted this week.
