Its been ages since I've been able to pick up some nice vintage menkos due to the price explosion taking most of them out of my range recently. I did however manage to make one score the other day, a lot containing three Isao Harimoto cards. I've written about Harimoto before, he is one of my all time favorite Japanese players so I'm always on the lookout for cards of his.
This lot had three of his cards, including his rookie card from the 1959 JCM 30b set (on the left in the above picture). The other two are from the 1960 JCM 86 and 1961 JCM 12d sets. I didn't have a rookie card of his in my collection yet so I was quite happy to add that one!
You might have noticed that this is my first post in several months. The blog is still alive and I'm still fine, during the baseball off season I sometimes drift off into other hobbies and put the baseball card collection on hold. At the moment I'm building a model railway with my son which is taking up all my free time. Once the spring arrives though I'll probably start posting on here more again.
Also, I quit Twitter about a month ago. Just too much weird stuff for my taste and I sort of decided "You know, I think just keeping the blog is enough for me."
