Over the past two years, I've added a lot of Yankee legends to my collection. A '67 Topps Mantle. A '60 Topps Berra. Numerous Rizzutos. One slugger that eluded me was Roger Maris.
I finally picked up a Maris card, at a hell of a price. I got this 1966 Topps for $7. No creases or wrinkles. Sure, some fuzzy corners, and the centering isn't perfect. However, overall, the condition is really nice.
I won't say that 1966 is my favorite Topps design. It's a bit bland. But I love having a Maris, especially at this price.
What about you guys? Do any of you own an original Maris? Which ones?
