I like trading, but there are a lot of times when you can find some really good bargains in the group. They often require flipping through a bunch of pictures, but sometimes it's worth it. Recently I took a little bit of time one evening to flip through some of the posts in one of the groups and I ran into an autograph of former Royals and Cubs manager Jim Frey. Card cost $1.
Frye never played in the Majors and spent most of his coaching career as a coach, not a manager. Working for the Orioles in the 1970s, he helped with the Earl Weaver lead teams that won a few American League pennants and a World Series. His managing career was short. Frye spent a few years with the Royals, winning the 1980 American League pennant, and helped the Cubs win the N.L. East in 1984. He also worked as the general manager of the Cubs for awhile, but wasn't so good at that job.
By no means is Frey a Hall of Fame manager, but I was really surprised to find a card of him for $1. I wasn't even really looking for a card of Jim Frye, but I know a good deal when I see one. Jim Frye for a dollar, good deal. Oh, I also got this card too, but it was $2......
I am not a huge Bob Brenly fan and try to watch Cubs games on mute, but he still won a World Series with the Diamondbacks. Also had a decent career with the Giants. Overall, not two cards I had to have, but when do you run across autographs that cheap of someone decent?
