Mickey Lolich 2001 Topps Team Topps Legends auto
Well THAT was certainly out of the blue! That's my first Lolich auto and I love that it's on one of Topps' nice reprint sets (you know, before they really jumped the shark with the concept). This Team Topps Legends card is a reprint of his 1964 Topps RC, which arrived just a few years before he helped the Tigers win the 1968 World Series. In that matchup, he homered and started three of the Series' seven games, winning all of them, including the deciding game seven against legend Bob Gibson. He finished his Tigers career with more than 200 wins and will always be remembered as a Tigers great. This is just a fantastic addition to my Tigers PC and was totally unexpected considering what I sent to Spiegel.
Thanks again for an awesome trade package, Spiegel! Rest assured I'll get you back with something just as good. Everyone else who's not already doing so had better head over to Nomo's Sushi Platter after you're done reading this, otherwise you're all dead to me.
