2 more HOF rookie cards have arrived, including a Yankee legend
My latest Check Out My Cards order arrived last weekend. And while much of it is of little fanfare, a few of the cards are worthy of showing off. I’ll spread them out over a few posts as I have some thoughts I want to share on different topics. But for now I’ll concentrate on a pair of Hall of Fame rookies that I recently acquired from the site.
Let’s get the big one out of the way first:
1951 Bowman Whitey Ford rookie card, graded BVG 2.
I’ve been hunting for one of these Whitey Ford rookie for years, but I never felt comfortable with my options for the price range. High book on this card is $2,500 and typically I like to stick to the 10-percent range on the really expensive stuff, which means I wanted to pay no more than $250 for one of these. And every time I had searched for a Ford in that price range, I was not overwhelmed with the options.
And then came along this graded beauty on COMC … at a price less than 10 percent. Oh, and it’s already graded by Beckett Grading, which is where I was going to send the card anyway.
