Good day everyone! Hope all of you are well!
Time for the newest WTHBALLS offering, my 1969 "Gimmie a Do-Over" set, which features 12 cards that are long overdue for a reworking, using new images instead of the recycled job Topps put out there way back when:
As you all know, with Topps and the MLBPA having a bit of a dispute back then, Topps got snarky and used a bunch of images from years prior to complete their 1969 set.
Sadly for us collectors, this also meant that players like Willie Mays, Carl Yastrzemski and Hank Aaron were part of the recycled bunch.
Well in this set, I tried to "fix" that problem, including the famous Aurelio Rodriguez card that originally showed the Angels batboy, and the horrendous Ken Harrelson card, which clearly showed him in a Kansas City Athletics uni, though designated a Red Sox player.
In addition to the 12 cards fixed here, I also included a deckle black and white card for Reggie Jackson AND a mini 1969 decal-style sticker of one of the cards.
I tried finding a printer that could handle actual rub-off decals, but only found one, and their minimum was 1000! Ha! "Too rich for my blood"!
Anyway, this set is $14 plus the usual $4.50 shipping, no matter how many packs you buy.
Of course, the usual paypal address: email@example.com
Really a fun set to create and add to the WTHBALLS binder!
Thank you all for the continued interest and support!
