It is also my very first 1952 Topps Brave. My chase for the team set is officially underway. I've always had the '52 set on my list, but it now has a little check mark on it.
But how awesome is this card? For one, it's more oval now than rectangular. What was once the four corners are now as soft as bunnies.
This is the kind of card that takes me back to being a kid again. Something this hobby has lacked for me lately.
And the kid in me says, those are NOT creases, but rather lightning bolts coming from Torgeson's bat!
I think this card is in a tie for my all time favourite card from a fellow blogger. It's right there with this one I featured a long time ago.
a 1954 Bowman Eddie Matthews. Also from dayf. I'm sensing a pattern here.
Lightning Bolts. I've got to remember that. Never thought of it that way as a kid.
I never thought of lightning bolts as a kid either. Sweet card though.
I can almost feel the vintage in my hand. Beautiful.
