1971 Topps #306 Jim Nash

Got my next to last variation in the 1971 Topps Baseball Card Set.

This is the card of Atlanta Braves pitcher Jim Nash.  The card on the left has a "black blob" on the left side while the card on the right has the blob airbrushed away.

As you may recall, the same type of variation occurred in the Jim Nothrup card of the same set which I discussed previously.

One more variation in the 1971 set to go!

The BIG Lot

Growing up in Dunellen, New Jersey we had a car lot on main street called "The Big Lot".  As I would walk by delivering newspapers weekly in the mid 1960's, I would always check out the cars.

Before it was the Big Lot, it was called "Garden State Auto".  I found this picture on ebay of the car lot from the late 1950's or early 1960's, and won it.

It looks great with my cars.  While the car lot is long since gone, all the houses and buildings are still there and look just about the same today as they did 50 years ago.
