Default A year of Lou Brock

Inspired by a thread on the CU forums where a Gary Carter fan posted something from his collection every day of Gary Carter, over the next year I will post something from my collection several times per week of Lou Brock, in chronological order. I have close to 300 unique items, most from the period 1962 to 1981. I have stayed away from the 100's of newer cards for the most part.

So, from 1962 -

Default Lou as a Cub

It is his only card where he looks sad... no wonder contemplating a career as a Cub with no World Series appearances. How happy did Broglio look in his first Cub card :-)

A hint of a smile, better days are on the horizon..... I got this 63 Topps High Number at a national Sports Net show in Orlando while on vacation in the early 90's. Anybody remember Sports Net in the early internet days? Anyway, out of dozens of dealers, there was only 1 63 and I bought it......

I got this card out of a pack at age 11. Lou signed it for me that year. Probably my favorite card in my collection. Sorry David if I stole your thunder, I had it scanned with the '65.
