“Let me see if I got this right. You buy low grade

beat up cards and feature them on your blog.

That’s awesome. Totally different than all the

other blogs I have seen featuring the nicest cards.”


1954 Dan Dee
Wally Westlake

So not only does Wally Westlake have a giant fold going across his face, but this card is totally slick.

Slick to the touch.

Dan Dees have a wax coating that kept the potato chip grease from penetrating the cardboard.

Sounds odd, but these cards were sold floating in bags of Dan Dee Hylo-ized Potato Chips.

I can just imagine pulling one of these cards for the first time.

I wonder if they had wet wipes in 1954?

I would be a lot fatter today if I could get cards in bags of chips. I've never heard of these before, what a great card!

Ooo, wet wipes? How about a card that tells you to use a "damp sponge?"
