Bob D'Angelo is a sports writer and is/was a member here. I have seen his columns online in a few places. His Bench ID escapes me at the moment though.

I am still a member, and congrats. I will be in contact about a story.

Reading these responses, was it Bob Costas who kept the 58 Mantle All Star card in his wallet as a teen? I will look to see if there was a way to connect with him at MLB Network and see if maybe Matt Vasgersian and Harold Reynolds can mention it on the off season morning show on MLB Network also.

I think Bob has kept a Mantle card in his wallet throughout his life, I know he gave a stirring eulogy at Mickey's funeral as well. He would be a great contact!

Just wrapped up a great phone call with Bob - always nice to take some time and connect with other members here on The Bench. Even better when it is for a cause like the YSL/Charity set.

When he is done doing what he does, hopefully it will lead to even more eyes being on the set when it is up for auction.

That is awesome @katester44 I am glad Bob is still on here, and I really am excited that @Mike121 brought our site back. This is a great community, and for everyone to have collaborated for so long on this particular set, just amazing! I will be excited to see what it realizes at auction!

Blessings,

Kevin

Just as an aside, once we get a set date and things are really in motion I will ramp up the social media to support any stories or articles as well as just posting about the auction once we know where to find it. If you guys aren’t already follow us and you’re on Twitter please head to @thebenchtrading and give us a follow. The more people who follow us and can retweet things the more eyes we will get on this project as we bring it to the public. Thanks, Andy

Good news/bad news on this wet and wintry Xmas eve....

Prior to going to auction, I wanted to get through all the boxes and make sure the cards were in order and in good shape. The good news is that all the cards are still in mint shape. The bad news is that we don't have all 6,742 cards. We are 39 cards short - I have put the numbers in my initial post and will add names when I can later.

I am still taking the cards to auction on Monday. We have until the last week of January to get the cards together to be included in the spring auction. If we don't hit that deadline, we will shoot for the summer auction.

Will update this thread as often as possible to keep everyone up to date. Thanks and sorry for dropping a 2020 on everyone at Christmas.

#5977 (Jeter) and #5634 (Wetteland) are on COMC.

And i have a message into a guy selling a large lot to see if he has any of the cards we need - will update that result as soon as he gets back to me.

Just grabbed 5977 and 6183 from Sportlots....will let you know when they arrive though it looks like we now have 3 Jeters

Thanks Andy -- I don't have COMC, so only 2 Jeters incoming. I will get the Wetteland, though, it was listed through Ebay. Sso technically 3 of the cards are already incoming! Great start.

Two of the cards that I mentioned were already bought by Andy D. If you want me to pick up 5634 let me know. It was mentioned in Andy's post earlier so I won't acquire it unless you tell me.

We also need the name of the players and not just the numbers to help search for the cards....plus we could be going head to head with other members in ebay....so we need to alert everyone else that we're bidding on the card and to stay away..... Merry Christmas.
