It's been about a month now that I walked into my local baseball card shop and bought about a dozen 1948 Leaf baseball cards.
Each card seemed to be in worse condition than the next but that was alright with me. The highlight of the lot was a Lou Boudreau that I paid about $15 for.
At least that's what I thought was the highlight.
While looking through the group of cards about a week ago I found this Joe Gordon. It was $5.
Not bad for a card of a man that was elected into Baseball's Hall of Fame earlier today.
When you pick up your newspapers in the morning you will probably read a bunch about Rickey Henderson and Jim Rice. I bet there will be no more than a few paragraphs on good ol' Joe.
From what I know, This is the only card produced of Gordon during his playing days. There may be a few regional-type issues of Gordon but as far as widely-produced cards go, that is if you can call the 1948 Leaf widely produced, this may be the only card ever made for Gordon.
A highlight of a card if you ask me.
