“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.”
1938 Exhibits 4 on 1
(Feller, Trosky, Bale, Averill)
But yesterday, I really started missing posting my poor old baseball cards. It had been a while since I picked up a stack of old cards. A couple days ago I did just that and this card was on top.
I bought this card because of Bob Feller.
Who am I kidding? I bought this card because of its horrible condition. Tape, stained, torn and dirty. My kind of card.
When taking it out of it's protective sleeve, it split in two.Yep, two pieces, right below poor Bob's head. 74 years later, this card is really brittle.
I wasn't too bummed though. I figure it's just another chapter in its storied life. If only this card could talk.
