I have been collecting. off and on, for the last 35 years. Many times I have lost my entire collection, whether it be water damage in the basement or divorce, that is just the way that it goes sometimes. The new era of collecting has brought about many new and exciting aspects but the vintage cards will always be my favorite because of the mamories that are attached to them. So, I have decided to start posting some of the vintage that have been fortunate enough to pick up. None of it will set the world afire, like a 52 Mantle, but they are all special to me. I will start with a football and a baseball card: 1978 Roger Staubach Roger played for the true America's Team of the 70s, after he served out his required enlistment period, including a tour in Vietnam. His clean cut look and miltary background turn him into a true golden boy of his era. He played in the NFL 11 years, including 4 Super Bowls (2 of which he won). He was a 6 time Pro Bowler. 1973 Nolan Ryan "The Ryan Express" was quite possibly the greatest pitcher to ever toe the rubber of major league baseball, even though he never won a Cy Young award. He was a victim of playing for some very bad teams in his career, but most of the time he was absolutely unhittable. He piled up 5714 strikeouts to go along with his 7 no-hitters.
