Rookie Card Upgrade: 1959 Topps Sparky Anderson
The old 1959 Topps Sparky Anderson rookie card has been in my collection for almost a decade. The card is centered nicely but features creases consistent with being stepped in by a bare foot.
The new Anderson in my collection, obtained recently during a great sale at COMC.com, is centered nicely, doesn’t have the scuff marks in the black area of the design and isn’t creased. It is a candidate for grading in the future.
