Card of the Day - 1957 Topps : Don Drysdale Base BVG Graded Very Good-Excellent+ 4.5
Sandy Koufax's partner in pitching crime Mr. Don Drysdale.
With me wanting at least one card of former Dodger stars from the 50's (some 60's as well) at some point I was going to get my hands on a Drysdale card and that time was now.
There are plenty of Don cards to pick from but I decided that if I was only going to have one of him I would make it from his rookie season of 1957. Of course it being his 1st card meant that it would be costlier than any other card which meant I had to chose wisely and with not that many graded copies up for sale I also had to have good timing.
I had this card on my watch list as it was on a BIN auction and thought I might pick it up at some point using eBucks but I didn't have to wait as one day the seller dropped the price 40% which meant it now could be had for more than 50% off of book. No time like the now for this card to be added to my collection and I now have my one and only Drysdale card and it's a beauty.
Thank you for reading and have a blessed day.
