The way a vintage Hall of Fame rookie card should look

20120510-195604.jpg

Take a good look.

Rounded corners and moderate edge wear, enough blemishes to make a collector of all things modern baseball cards cringe.

But THIS is what cards that are 79 years old should look like.

For a mere $15 and change, this 1933 Goudey Frank Frisch became the newest Hall of Fame rookie card to be added to the Cardboard Icons rookie collection.

The Frisch joins other Hall of Fame rookies of Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig and Sam Rice from the same set that are part of my growing collection.

    It’s beautiful, $15 for something that’s 80 years old though…that’s the nutty part of the card industry.
