Sometimes the cards I post look worse than they actually are.
This Tom Seaver card is worse than it looks.
It has so many creases, I can't count. And those black borders don't help.
Some people may wonder where I get these old cards. Since starting this blog nearly three years ago, I actually seek them out. The worse, the better. Believe me, I don't go overboard – at least in my opinion – this card probably cost a few bucks if you include shipping.
Some may take pride in having a perfect card. Even borders. No creases or rounding. Perfect surface.
For me, it's all about finding the worse card out there. The poorest of the poor. If you have a 1971 Topps Tom Seaver that has seen worse days than mine, give me a shout. It may be worth a few bucks.
