I recently added one nice vintage card and one nice newer card to my collection. Both cool in their own right but both desired as well. (for lack of a better word) I am chasing every Phillies team set from 1952 up. I have made huge progress over the last year (grabbing the 4 high numbered in the 52 set were quite difficult). I am gaining ground on 1957 as well. I still need the Richie Ashburn, but I did add this one!
A pretty serious looking Robin Roberts! He had quite a good career, considering he is in the hall of fame. It's a bit off center but I believe I paid less then 5 dollars so I was more then pleased with the purchase.
This next card is more for you new school collectors. It's an auto of a non Philly that I had wanted for a while. I decided to pull the trigger for the price of a blaster which I thought was reasonable. One of the best 3rd baseman in the game today!
Quite (word of the day!) pleased with these 2 acquisitions!
Thanks for reading!
