Day 8: A Card That Reminds You Of A Family Member

1971 Topps #450 Bob Gibson

My Uncle Bill also collects baseball cards. Pretty much every card from the early 70s that I own I got from him. He made a deal with me once when I was a kid. He handed me stacks and stacks of baseball cards, and it was my job to sort and order them. Singles went to him, and I got to keep the doubles. I was more than happy to do it, and it was the first time I held cards older than me. My uncle's favorite team is the Cardinals, and Bob Gibson is his favorite player.


  1. That's pretty cool. No one in my family even cares for cards...

  2. I was very lucky to have a few members of my family that at least supported my hobby.
