The Five Tool Collector recently!
Nick has contributed some buybacks to my franken-set project on many occasions now, and this time was no different as I received a nice pair of Topps Heritage box-topper buybacks:
1961 Topps #291 - Tex Clevenger
Tex Clevenger was a solid bullpen arm over the course of a few seasons, beginning with the Boston Red Sox back in 1954. I don't have a whole lot of '61 buybacks in the binder so far, but in this case it's not a free pass for Tex here.
1959 Topps #221 - Bob Bowman
Here's the other buyback Nick sent, a lovely '59 Topps buyback of a man named Bowman. I recently evaluated a whole batch of these '59 buybacks for the project, but Bob here was not among them. This one's a perfect fit too, as I was lacking a #221 buyback at this stage.
Even better than that though is the fact that this one completes a new page!
Not too bad for a plain white envelope, huh? Thanks as always Nick! I've had another stack of cards building for you for a couple of weeks now, and it's just about ready to head your way...
