1964 was only the second year Topps produced cards of Freehan, so this fits beautifully towards the front of the group, smack between his RC and second-year issue. It's #57 in that PC, and I'm excited to have added yet another piece to my favorite combined Tiger/Wolverine player set.
Moe also was kind enough to send some new Tigers my way, and I mean brand new:
I'm sure you're all well aware these are 2013 Topps cards, and I do have to say I like how the base stuff looks, especially the Verlander, which is a great example of a horizontal card done right. I also appreciate getting something of Smyly, especially since he may become an important part of the rotation before long.
Thanks again, Larry, for a great Tigers package! I have something on the way from COMC for you that I hope you'll like, so watch for that soon. Everyone, please head over to Larry's unique blog to appreciate his Herculean effort at acquiring a complete 2008 Topps TTM autograph set as well as Luis Aparicio, Daniel Hudson, and Diamondbacks.
