Cards with a Story - Yaz

Another COMC order arrived today. It was heavy on Carl Yastrzemski cards. Yaz is my favorite player of all time. I got to see him play once in person. It was his last game in the Metrodome in Minneapolis in his last season. I don't remember who won the game, Twins or Red Sox. But I do remember late in the game Yastrzemski hadn't played yet. Even though he was on the visiting team, the crowd really wanted to see him play. They (we) chanted "Yaz! Yaz! Yaz!" over and over again, the whole place. The coach did sub him in when the Red Sox were batting. When the crowd saw him get up from the bench, put on his helmet and head out to the on deck circle, they errupted. It doesn't get any better than that for a little Yaz fan! Here are the cards that came today.
