Time for the second and final installment featuring the birthday presents I picked out for myself on COMC last month. With my $75 credit I ended up with eight cards in total. You can see the first four here, today I've got the remaining four to show off. Let's get to it!
Okay, time for the final card, and it's one I've wanted to own for years now, since I was a boy really.
As far as '60s baseball cards go, this has to be one of the most iconic. Behold!
The home run race that went on that season is one of the most well-known tales in baseball history, and I've been interested in that race since first reading about it as a young boy obsessed with any baseball books I could get my grubby little hands on. It's awesome to me to think that this card was printed up during that historic year. I'd like to think that this was pulled from a pack and traded around between a group of neighborhood friends that summer as Roger and Mickey chased history, though I'll never really know.
Happy birthday to me, indeed!
