Newest Rizzuto - 1956 Topps
I have three vintage Phil Rizzuto cards – 1954 Topps, and 1955 Topps and Bowman. The condition of each varies – from awful to good. I just added my fourth Rizzuto via eBay – a 1956 Topps for around $6. No idea why it was so cheap. It’s in fair condition I’d say. A few creases but nothing major. The centering is pretty good and although fuzzy, the corners aren’t horrendous for a ’56.
I’ve always toyed with the idea of collecting Rizzuto. I’m not sure if I’d stick to vintage, or try to acquire newer stuff too. I have a lot of newer issues of him, so I’d have a nice head start if I ever decided to dive in. Decisions, decisions.
Here are some of my better Rizzuto cards:
