I saw Foster play for the Mets. It was so depressing. Every time he came up in a clutch situation, he struck out. The guy got booed out of Queens. No coincidence, as soon as they got rid of him, the team got good. Strawberry took his place. Man, was he something else those first couple of years.
I'm also doing the 58 AS subset and the fb hof - 3 star cards and a Friend away from the former. I'm not as rigorous as you on the hof, doing only RCs is an expensive proposition. Can't help you on the Taylor. Peace.
Greg Maddux pitching for the Cubs against LA before he was on anyone's radar screen. So impressive how he hid the ball and tricked the hitters.
Yaz hitting a walkoff HR at Fenway.
Dwight Gooden at Shea in '85, the year he blew everyone away.
That seems reasonable. What I'm bothered by for the last almost 30 years - and the reason I don't collect modern - is even if the card companies are not individually overproducing, there is such a proliferation of different companies and sub-releases that a given player ends up having 20 or more...
Yeah, you're probably right. I already have about 2/3 of it from back then when I used to buy packs for fun.
Needless to say, presuming you are not going to buy the set and still want the Lindstrom for your admirable and enviable project, I can send it to you.
