My second order from my ridiculous ebay gains netted me two more PC needs. 1965 Topps is in the lower middle of my favorite Topps designs but I do like this clean Kaline at a good price. The second Kaline from this order gives us this pop-tastic 1972 Topps. Another set in the middle of my favorite designs.
