Let's go over the list one more time....
Like sifting through boxes looking for gems - CHECK
Sucker for a deal - CHECK
Enjoys a good laugh - CHECK
So when I came across a box full of non-sport priced at three bucks a piece or 2 for $5....I decided to take a few moments.
I came to a quick halt when I saw this gem....
I have no idea what possessed...............oh yeah right. I'm a sucker.
Get it!!! I'm starting to show my age.
The back of the card has some great info on Mr. Savalas (I just can't call him Telly)....
"Telly Savalas ranks among the most recognizable actors of the 20th century. A veteran of World War II, Savages was nominated for an Academy Award in 1963 for Birdman of Alcatraz. Of course, his most famous role came as Lt. Theo Kojak on Kojak. Who loves ya' baby!"
Anyways, I confirmed with the seller 2 for $5 and began digging for card #2.
It was a non-sport box but found this equally impressive legend....
That was good enough for me.
These two cards for a measly five bucks. All.....day.....long.
