Hey Boo Boo! A '59 Yogi

In my last post, I showed a 1933 Goudey Lyn Lary. However, I mentioned that I picked up a second vintage card last week. I found a well-loved 1959 Topps Yogi Berra that I pretty much had to have at just a few bucks cost.

Overally, the card is in fair condition, minus a set of parallel-ish lines by Yogi's head. I can't tell if it's a man-made mark in pencil or ink, or if something rubbed against it to cause the marking. There is also a crease that run down the front of the card.

But you know what? I don't care either way. The card is awesome, and my first 1950's Yogi.


  1. Any 59 Yogi is better than no 59 Yogi at all. Nice pickup!!

  2. Love the damage. The card didn't spend it's life behind plastic. It's sufficiently old and NOW it can retire to its rightful toploader!

  3. Oooohhhh very nice! That doesn't look bad at all!
