My First '51

Just a quick one tonight, featuring an eBay win that arrived in my mailbox a week or two ago:

Aside from being a very long overdue first '51 Topps card in my collection, it's one of my older Red Sox cards period.  To me, it's personally significant as well, since a 1950 Bowman Maurice McDermott was the vintage card that first sparked my interest in collecting many years ago.  I've sort of had a soft spot for the guy ever since.

This card, which is in pretty remarkable shape for being well over 60 years old now, set me back just $12 and change, around $15 shipped.  Why did I buy that blaster of 2014 Topps again?

Thought it was going to be a Parkhurst, but that's pretty awesome, too!

1951 seems to be a great year for cardboard in general!

Thanks guys! It's thanks to you Dave that I even have a '51 on the hockey side. Still loving that card!
