First up, the plethora of White Sox cards. About half the box was Pale Hose. Strange a Tigers fan would have so many. I think he secretly wants to be a Sox fan but is afraid to go public. I am sure these are just dupes in that regard. So what are the highlights of those dupes Pat gave up?
Let's start with the shiny, chrome-y Sox. Love the Frank '04 Chrome. And the Mark from 04 Donruss is a great addition. Ahhh....the days when the picture on the back was different.
Vintage-y Sox are next. I really need to work on that Goudey set. I like the simplicity of the cards and the bright colors. The Turkey Red in the middle is one I am no longer missing.
Some real vintage was in the box as well. Three eras of uniforms on display. I really hope the Sox bring back the 59 threads as a Sunday throwback some year. They wore them a couple years back as a throwback for a series, but that is not enough time for a fine design as that.
Lots of great players in the stack of Sox. How can you go wrong with three great cards of Fisk? I have never seen those SI Kids cards before (with perforation on the edge). I have a few of the Fleer star stickers, but zero White Sox until now.
As I am want to do, we need a best card of the bunch. Since I am breaking this box down by groups, we will showcase the best, IMO, of each group. The best of the ChiSox was a little tough, but I am going to have to pick this beauty.
