1953 Topps Johnny Podres
The first of 3 "cards" that I don't care what grade is attach to them no matter the grade and that is good when it comes to this 63 year old card of the Game 7 winning pitcher of the 1955 World Series.
This was my 1st vintage card purchase from a couple years ago and now that I have gotten more into the yesteryear cards I wanted to slab this beauty. I have no idea what grade this card will get as it could be anywhere from a 1 to a 3.5 in my mind but that all depends on the person who grades it. The card is fragile and old and that is the reason I want it in a case. Easier to care for and easier to file.
The first of 2 cards in the batch that I did not care what grade it received as I just wanted it in a case as this particular Podres card from 1953 is very fragile due to its age and condition.
Not sure what grade it would receive but I believed it would come back between a 1 to 3.5 and I hit it right on the mark as it earned a 3. That grade does nothing really for value or a resale price as it's not going anywhere. With it in a case now though I can store it much easier than the top loader it was in. Podres will always be remembered for being the winning game 7 pitcher of the 1955 World Series and I love that I have his rookie card in the best condition possible for my collection.
Thank you for reading and have a blessed day.
