2014 Panini Golden Age - Expanded Look Part 2

Here are some more cards from the hobby box of Panini Golden Age I recent bought.

Curt Flood #96
A 3-time All-Star and pretty good player whose career was completely overshadowed by his attempt to become a free agent rather than be traded to the Phillies in 1970.

Jimi Hendrix #105
A hero of my youth. Purple haze, man.

Haystacks Calhoun #107
This guy was a 640 pound wrestler. Yikes!

Cadillac Ranch #110
This is pretty interesting and by coincidence some relatives of mine just visited the place. If you don't know about it, here's the Wikipedia article.

Lee Majors (#127) and Farrah Fawcett (#131)
The set features several parings like this. Also included Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.

Lindsey Wagner #128
Of course, Lindsey Wagner, The Bionic Woman, has some connection to Lee Majors as well. Couldn't they find a better photo of her?

Frederick Valentich #136
In my opinion, the weirdest subject for any card in the set. This guy was a pilot in Australia. One night he was out flying and radioed that he was being followed by a UFO. Then his radio went dead and he was never heard from again.

Nolan Ryan #147
Nolan Ryan in an A's uniform? According to the back of the card, this is Ryan during his Alvin High School Days.

Hank Williams, Sr. #149
35 Top 10 singles. I'm not a big country western fan but you can't go wrong with Hank Williams.

You got so much better cards than I did when I bought a pack.
