1953 Topps
Enos Slaughter

While deciding on a card to post, this card stood out. Way out.

Maybe it was the bold colors of this 1953 Topps card. Maybe it was the 1950s feel of the old advertising peeking over Slaughter's shoulder. Maybe it was the fact that it was just plain worn.

This card has some definite mileage. This is my kind of card.

You just know that some kid carried this thing in his back pocket for the entire 1953 season. At least that's what it looks like.

That's half the fun of owning a poor old baseball card. Wondering where it's been.
