Exploring the Collection - 1958 Topps

 Our next stop in reviewing my collection is 1958.  I have a good chunk of the Braves team set from this year.  Here are my top 5 cards from 1958 Topps:


Another of my recent Kaline pick ups is a nice portrait.  The red background pops.


The pink background stands out on this card.  It is my only Bunning card and I need to get more for my Tigers PC.


The trade of Red from St. Louis to Milwaukee helped the Braves reach and win the 1957 World Series.


This card features the color scheme of most of the Braves cards from this set.  I like the dark green background with the red stripe at the bottom.


This card differs slightly from most of the Braves cards with the lighter green background.

I have five nice Hall of Famers from this set.

Tune in tomorrow for my favorite.

========================================

This is such a great set the choice is a tough one but I have to go with the Spahn.  It was my first card of him from his playing days and is in that great Braves color combo.

  2. I've only recently started to really appreciate the 1958 Topps baseball set. The Sport Magazine All-Star cards are especially gorgeous.

1976 Topps Mail Day

Made another trade happen from Twitter and got 3 1976 Topps I need in exchange for a 1973 Steve Carlton.  That Carlton card documents one of the greatest pitching seasons ever.  The Phillies were 59-97 that year but Carlton was 27-10 and led the league in strikeouts. Wow! Here are the 3 lovely cards I got back in trade: That is Reds backup catcher Bill Plummer, Cardinals SS/2B Mike Tyson, and the team card from the Oakland A's.  This was the last great Oakland team from their dynasty.  They were the 3-time defending World Champions but lost to the Red Sox in the AL Championship Series. Thank you to the Baseball Card Kid for the nice trade. Please see my 1976 Topps want list for what else I need.

RIP Knucksie

  As a child growing up in the late 1970's in Georgia I watched the Braves a lot. My first baseball hero was Phil Niekro. Phil Niekro died last night after battling cancer. 2020 needs to end.

Tax Refund Treasures

  I filed early and got a decent tax refund so I decided to buy a couple of more vintage cards for my PC. First up is this lovely 1957 Topps Al Kaline that fits nicely into my vintage Kaline collection.  It is now my oldest card of him.  Since I'm not a fan of the oversize Topps cards from before 1957 it is likely to stay my oldest Kaline. My collection was missing a Goudey card so I picked up this card that checks that off the list and is an addition to my vintage Tigers collection.  It is now my second oldest baseball card. A big thank you to Medina Sport Cards in Medina, Ohio for having these two great cards at good prices.
