One Card Post - Hustler Banks
Where: COMC (Black Friday)
How Much?: $3.98
Why?: I'm really trying to step up my efforts towards completing the '59 Topps baseball set, and on Black Friday weekend I made a nice step forward with this Ernie Banks card. The corners aren't exactly sharp but with good centering and solid overall visual appeal this one felt like a steal at less than $4.
This has to be one of the earliest play-at-the-plate cards in existence, right? I've always enjoyed cards that depict a specific moment, season, championship or award so this is one I would have gravitated towards even had I not been chasing this set.
