Listening to the Mets game last night, announcers were showing aerial photos of the old Polo Grounds and the massive distance to center field. They said only 4 guys ever hit one out to dead center and Brock was one of them. Surprised me but maybe it shouldn't have.

Just thought of this seeing this thread and not sure if all the Lou fans knew this. He's had a rough couple of years but still maintains his class and even sense of humor - note the comment on outrunning Molina.

Or maybe 5..... Also interesting on the back of the card is that he is described as a "pitchers best friend" in right, with a strong throwing arm, but his reputation most of his career was as a mediocre left fielder.

A few more pickups over the last 6 weeks

1973 Kelloggs still in the wrapper

1968 Bazooka end panel, I've had the entire panel for a long time, the end panel cut off is hard to find. Thanks Cardinalcollector aka Randy.

1977 scrap with a Lou Brock ghost. It's the 2nd one that I have, almost identical to this one.

Hey Dave, I didn't realize that was you that won the Bazooka Brock. If you have a Brock want-list, you should send it to me. Regards, Randy

Really like the candy lid proof. I think most of the lid proofs that I have seen were finished backs. Cool that this one doesn't have all of the colors.
