1707: Just had to have this

Just set it and forget it.  That's what I did with this card in my ebay cart.  About 3 weeks ago I was hunting for the final 3 cards from the '64 Topps set I'm building.  I found all 3, but didn't care for the total price combined.  So I let them sit there.

The Luis Aparicio card sold.

The Mike Joyce card sold.

But last week, this beauty was still sitting there.

At $36, I was foolish to wait as long as I did, but thankfully I was able to buy the card and today it arrived.

A little off center, sure.  Top left corner is dinged a bit.  A bit of dirt on the back.  It's all good.

I just had to have this, and now that I do I'm just 2 cards from finishing off the set.

$1743 - $36 =$1707 left to spend in 2017.

I'll have another one of the budget posts this week.

Thanks for reading, Robert


  1. Awesome card, well worth it to grab this one and get one card closer to completing the '64 set. Hope you're able to grab the last two soon; you've still got plenty of cash to spare in your budget.

  2. What a great card! I bet they took that photo in '62 coming off the big years for M&M and Cash.

  3. Congratulations on your big purchase! That is one really great looking card.

  4. What a card! Nice pickup.
