Card of the Day - 1959 Topps : Sandy Koufax Base BVG Graded Very Good 3.0
The hunt for 12 years worth (1955-1966) of graded Koufax cards continues with this latest addition to the collection. While this card is not in the best of condition that is not what matters to me the most. What I wanted was the card in a case no matter what the grade was at the best price I could find it for. After watching a few auctions go by without me winning I finally won this baby for way under book.
A seller on eBay finally put this card up for a reasonable starting price aka 99 cents so when I saw it I was quick to add it to my watch list. Literally a last second bid netted me this 57 year old card and even with a 3 attached to it I couldn't be happier. I have to do a recount but I believe I am now officially halfway (6 of 12) to picking up all the vintage Koufaxs I have set out to obtain.
Thank you for reading and have a blessed day.
