Mr. Bob And Friends

The latest shipment from my man Marv arrived Saturday, and it did not disappoint.  Knocking my 1960 Topps needs down to fourteen cards were these beauties.

Mr. "Bob" Clemente heads the list.  This thing is only about 2° from being absolutely perfect.  His buddy Maris is just a little off vertically, but is pristine clean otherwise.

Ferrarese is the odd man out of this group, but bright and sharp nonetheless.  Great cartoon on the back of his:

Hep me, Hep me, I been hyp-mo-tized!

The rest are all high number All-Stars.  Skowron's back says he was out most of the previous year, but is back and clouting clutch hits for the Bronx Bombers.  McCovey is basking in his rookie year glory, looking forward to a Hall of Fame career.  Mathews  never has a bad card, and Kaline is just wondering what he has to do to win the batting title.  The cartoons on the back of the All-Stars are epic.  They cover half the card back, it's awesome.

Marvelous Marv VB., you are once again the MVP!!

  1. 1960 Topps is such a beautiful set. That Clemente is magnificent... and those all-star cards aren't too shabby either.
