Buyback Franken-set: Mistaken Identity

Just one buyback today, one I hand-picked recently off of eBay.  Check it out!

1985 Topps #497 - Gary Pettis

Yup, the "infamous" 1985 Gary Pettis card!  This one's looked upon fondly by collectors due to the fact that Gary's younger brother is actually pictured.  I've always found the card to be amusing for that reason, and when the opportunity presented itself to add a copy to my buyback franken-set for less than $2 shipped, I jumped at it.

Best of all, I didn't have a #497 buyback prior to this, so Gary slid right into the binder without contest!

Franken-set Progress:  531/792 (67%)
"Rejected" Buybacks:  428
Total Buybacks in Collection: 959

Nice! It blew my mind as a kid when I heard the wrong guy was on the card...

Great addition to the binder. That's a classic. I was amused by the sly look on 'Pettis The Younger's' face.

Cool card. Gotta wonder who is going to be this generation's Aurelio Rodriguez or Gary Pettis.
