Card of the Day - 1961 Topps : Duke Snider Base BVG Graded Excellent Plus 5.5
Unlike with Koufax most Dodgers from yesteryear I am only looking for 1 card in my collection to represent them (unless something really catches my eye) and Duke here is finally in the collection as I played cat and mouse with this card's auction.
When I first saw this card, which happened to be on a very reasonable priced BIN auction, I had my sight set on a different card's auction which was due to end in 5 days. Both had a similar book value but I wanted to wait the other one out to see if I could score a better deal than this one. Until the last 20 minutes it looked like I was going to land the other card but then it jumped $10 in price and with that I went back to this one and clicked the BIN button and added The Duke to my vintage collection.
Thank you for reading have a blessed day.
