Cardboard convincing - I was looking through cards recently when something drew my attention and I thought, "that's a post." Maybe it wasn't a great post, but it was something...

One Card Post - Marquee Gehrig
How Much?: $1.07
Why?: I'm really starting to love the 2011 Topps Marquee set. I paid no attention to it at the time of its release, as I don't purchase high-end, hit-based product, and never would have forked over the ridiculous amount that I'm sure was required for a hobby box. The photographs are fantastic though, and I'm a sucker for minimal design with full-bleed photos, so I've grabbed quite a few singles for around a buck or less over the past year.
Other: I'm ashamed to admit this is just the 7th Gehrig card I've picked up. How could someone so significant in the history of the game be so poorly represented in my collection?
