Hope everyone has a Great Thanksgiving.....................
Now for some cards.....
I went to the Minneapolis Sports Collectible Convention a few weekends ago, and besides picking up some of the newer cards, I found these poor old cards looking for a new home...
For my Packers collection...
|1961 Topps Paul Hornung Record Setting card|
|1952 Topps Dutch Leonard|
|1952 Topps John Pramesa|
The Dutch card isn't to bad, but poor ole Pramesa had a corner torn off. AAAUGH!!!
|1960 Topps Rival All Stars Mantle & Boyer|
This poor ole card looks like it was used for stable gun practice.
Also, someone was practicing their spelling of YANKEES on the back.
But you can't pass on a cheap Mantle Card... can you????
I think the story of the Mantle Boyer card goes this way.... In 1960, lil Johnny opened a pack of Topps baseball cards. To his amazement, he received this card. He than proceeded to staple it to his bulletin board. Johnny was a huge Yankee fan, so he staple a small piece of paper over Boyer's face on the card, thus only leaving Mantle's visible.
KEEP ON COLLECTING !!
