Took a couple of evenings away from the blog, was getting a bit tough writing after 10PM each night. I have had a couple of cards I wanted to show for a few days and here's my chance.
Both of the cards on this post are from the same eBay seller. I grabbed the Francona for $4, not bad really and the card is in nice condition. The other card I'm going to show was a card that I thought I didn't have originally and finding it for $1.50 was stupendous.
A 1971 Topps Phil Niekro that I was stoked to find in nice shape for so cheap was fantastic. Then I took a look at the original one I have in the collection...
Outside of the coloring on the left hand side of the card, I believe the photo on this card has more of a skin tone than the first picture, so now I'm not so sure. I'll think on it a bit before I decide, unless someone gives me a compelling argument on either card in the comments.
33 cards left for the '59 set. We're getting there.
