Don Baylor - My PC

Baylor is one of my many 60's and 70's player collections.  Sad to hear of his passing.  I won't rehash his career, Wrigley Jenga did that so well already, and High Heat Stats chimed in too.  So I'll do what I do better - show his cards.

His rookie, of course, is the 1971 high number with Dusty Baker and Tom Paciorek.  I actually have three of them, since I collect Baylor and Baker and have finished the set.  I just got the third at the last Chantilly show in July for eight dollars. 



Here's the rest of my Baylors.  Mostly the basics until you get into the late 80's except for the O-Pee-Chees.  Picked up the '78 and '79 at the National, along with a whole bunch of my other PC guys.  Will show those soon too. 

Anyway, here's a look through my binder.  I've left open spaces for other OPC and oddballs I may find later.  I have this weird rule that Topps comes first before 1980, then after that, each company goes in alphabetical order.  So vintage OPC will be after the Topps cards, but later OPC will be before SportFlics, Stadium Club, and Topps, etc.

 
 
 
 

Love the '83 transition between OPC & Topps/Traded.

 Managers.  A lot more to find here...

 Separated by year...

 The red Rookie Cup scans a lot redder than it looks.

Thank you for the shout out and thank you for sharing this impressive collection! I may be a touch biased, but I think he looks best in Cubbie blue.

Baylor will always be an Angel to me. He was a force then.
