1971 Topps
Tom Seaver

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.

Cool Blog! I look at my sets from the early '70's and the cards in this type of condition always get a 2nd look, which is fun. I remember one summer afternoon in the mid-70's I turned all my Hostess cards into "teepees"! I bent all of them in half and placed them on my bed and thought they were "teepees"! I would never do that to a Topps card, but poor 'ol Hostess cards with the Twinkee stain on the stats was always fair game!!!
