Have you seen me?

I was wondering if some you out there that do vintage, or minor league cards know this man?

I ask because my wife recently won an auction to do some hitting time with him for my son. While I do own this 1972 beauty, I was hoping to find some of his other cards to maybe get signed when we meet with him. I do know that his 1971 rookie card is #74, he had a 1973 Topps #358, and a 1975 with the Tigers at #497. I also know that Jim spent a lot of time playing and managing in the minors. If any of my friends that do minors cards have anything extra, let me know and I would like to make deals with anybody for cards.


  1. That's a pretty cool opportunity... private lessons from a former major leaguer.

    eBay has three Columbus Clippers cards of Mr. Nettles & a sweet 1973 Tacoma Twins card of him.

    There's also cards on eBay from when he was with the Tacoma Tigers, Idaho Falls, & Madison Muskies.

    Good luck with the autos.

  2. I looked at his Rookie Card and thought "That looks like Graig Nettles" incredible Third Baseman for the NY Yankees. Wiki'ed him and there are brothers. A lot of talent in that family.

    Checked with my local shop, Burbank Sportscards and they have all his cards.
    1971 Topps and O-Pee-Chee
    1972 Topps and O-Pee-Chee
    1973 Topps and O-Pee-Chee
    1975 Topps and O-Pee-Chee
    1981 Tacoma Tigers
    1985 Madison Muskies

    These can had for a little over a buck each down to 25 cents. I go to them for all my singles for TTM.

    I'll go into my collection tonight to se if I can help you out too. This should be a lot of fun for you guys. Congrats!!

  3. Jim is indeed Greg's brother, playing for the Twins during a time when Gaylord Perry's brother Jim also played with the Twins.
