In the seemingly never-ending string of packages that Wes/Jaybarkerfan has been sending to my door, he hit me with another mailer. It was full of Royals, of course, and I finally got it all entered into Zistle and scanned here.
I liked the oddballs that were part of it, and wanted to show those off here.
Baby Billy Butler.
Jimmy Dean, the Sausage King of Kansas City.
"Tetrad?" Never heard of this. Lucky for me, there were ONLY 45,000 of these made, so good luck ever tracking down another. Suckers.
Finally, it's not a JBFJ package without a little intrigue. This internal envelope was awaiting me...
Oh man! It's probably a George Brett Rookie - GEM MINT 10 - I CAN'T BELIEVE IT I'VE WAITED SO LONG WES IS THE BEST WES IS THE BEST WELL EVEN IF IT ISN'T THAT IT'S GONNA BE A BILLY BUTLER AUTOGRAPH OR JOAKIM SORIA OR DAVID DEJESUS OR SOMETHING TRULY GREAT!!!!!!
AND THE RESULT IS.....
I just got "Grimace"-Bipped. There was no photoshopping involved in the above picture -- I just threw them all on the scanner. Well played, sir. :-)
Ken Harvey was an outstanding 1B for the Royals. See his fielding prowess below.
