A while back I was fortunate enough to land a small lot of stickers from the 1967 Topps Red Sox set. I don't see these around my neck of the woods that often, so when I had a chance to jump on some at what came out to around $6 each I couldn't resist. I showed the first sticker back in August in the form of Dalton Jones, today I've got the rest from the lot...
Because team ace Jim Lonborg had started the final game of the regular season, Jose actually started game 1 of the World Series in '67. He pitched a hell of a game facing off against Cards ace Bob Gibson, giving up only two runs. Unfortunately that was enough to earn the loss as Boston scored just a single run. That single run came from Santiago as well, as he blasted a solo shot off Gibson to help his own cause. Too bad none of the other guys could manage as much or else the outcome may have been different for Boston.
I doubt I'll ever even come close to completing this set, but this lot puts me at around the 25% mark with just 33 total stickers on the checklist. At least I've got some nice examples now for my Red Sox collection, and at what I'd consider a bargain price given the age and condition.
11/12 Dominion Pen Pals Stamkos/Connolly Auto /50 - I think this one speaks for itself! One for the PC and one I didn't have already all in one.
