Pick Ups From The LCS

So I made a pledge to spend more time at my LCS digging through boxes and finding stuff I wanted rather than buying hobby boxes and being disappointed. So I had some free time yesterday and ended up picking up this lot of cards:
I didn't have a Uecker, now I do! A few nice Nolan Ryans, a scary looking Jim Wynn.. and the jewel of the scan, an Aaron/Clemente/Allen league leaders card. I didn't have a "vintage" Clemente or Allen, now I do.
Some Houston love here... Watt and Reed RC's, a couple of Bagwell serial numbered cards, 2 Twins cards for Rhubarb Runner (or any other Twins fan for that matter) and a Nolan Angels insert. The Carew is numbered /299 and I couldn't pass it up. There is no way you get a modern player to pose like that on a card these days... just won't happen. The Elite is a 12th round pick for the Twins, who knows, he may be the next Jack Morris or the next Todd Van Poppel...
Finally, some vintage Astros! So what if I hate Joe Morgan, that card is awesome. Love me some vintage looking Astros cards and Grady Hatton is a manager I don't think anyone messed with... he looks pretty pissed at the fact his photo was being taken.

Thanks for reading!!! (Oh, and I've looked all over Mobile, AL, not a single pack of 2013 GQ to be found yet!!!)

***After I hit "Publish" I noticed this is post #900!!! HOLY CRAP!!!!***
