|Happy Birthday to me!|
I can't recall having seen this card before. I most certainly would have remembered such an amazing photo. Tom Terrific, The Franchise, staring in to get the sign. Looks like he might be pitching in Cincy. This is a great shot -- especially considering it's a freakin' Record Breaker card, not even his primary issue. Love it!
See, this is why we got married! Haha...okay, maybe just one of the many, many, MANY reasons. [Ed. Note: She monitors this blog] But, in all seriousness, it is great to have a spouse who "gets" you. The whole baseball card thing was a complete unknown to her before me, but she always manages to mix in a card-related gift during special occasions or holidays. For her to venture out of her comfort area and get me a vintage card like this is a pretty big deal, and it means a lot.
Now, I'm not even going to ask how or where she got this...or how much she paid. We all know how sports card hucksters -- especially on the internet -- prey on those uninitiated. But, whatever the price, you can't put a value on memories.
And, this card will remain a special part of my collection for years to come.
