One Card Post: Sandford Parkie
How Much?: $6.00 (plus $1.50 shipping)
Why?: It's been a "frugal" start to 2018 for me collecting-wise, which is fine. I've picked up about 60 total cards over the first two and a half weeks of the year, but most of those were cheap (50 cents or less) needs for a vintage set that I'll be posting about when they arrive. At six bucks, Ed Sandford here is one of the more expensive cards I've picked up in the new year. It just arrived in my mailbox today, and makes for an easy post on a night when I'm short on both energy and time.
This is my fourth card from the '54-55 Parkhurst set, but my first from the All-Star subset (the others feature game action photos). The '54-55 season was the best of Eddie Sanford's career, he finished in the top 10 in scoring, was named a Second Team All-Star, and captained Boston (though he's wearing only the 'A' in this photo).
