1977-79 Sportscaster Series Cards Pickup & A Little Buyer Remorse

Kin Kinsley
August 24, 2016

I become easily excited at times.  This is a case where I was excited to see something, grabbed it and then later on wished that I hadn’t.  

It’s not that there’s anything wrong with these items.  I picked them up for a fair price.  They are oversized (4 11/16 x 6 1/4″) and not easily stored.  I don’t care for the current NFL, but I like vintage cards and appreciate the history of professional football.  That is why the subjects on these cards excited me.

These men were THE early stars of the game.  I do have cards for both of them for my 1955 Topps All-American set and I wish I had just been content with that and had passed on these.  Ah well, it happens.  I prefer a little buyer remorse on something that I bought that on something that I passed on and shouldn’t have.
