1951 Bowman
Sal Maglie

So it's been a while since I posted a new (old) card on this blog.

And while looking through my recent acquisitions I found this beauty. Some of you out there must wonder why anyone would buy this card, especially in it's horrible condition.

But to me, this is the perfect card.

It makes me wonder ...

Who owned this card as a child?

Why are there so many creases?

Was it in the back of someone's pocket?

Did the fading come from someone leaving it out in the sun?

Exactly how old is the tape?

All important questions to ponder when purchasing a poor old baseball card.

When I was ten years old I left some baseball cards in my pocket. My mom washed the pants and the cards came out looking a lot like this Maglie card.
