While scouring the ebay for ’52 high numbers I took a few detours.
It just arrived in the mail today.
I have made known my love of backstops and shown pieces of my catcher collection. This is the new jewel in that crown.
Bench is the greatest catcher all time. There I said it. He is also a top 20 overall player. I am too young to remember him in his prime but Bench has also been a big piece of baseball in my mind.
The card itself is killer. I love the design of ’68 and Bench looks so suave with his hat on backwords.
I got it for a steal. It’s a card I always wanted but always though of as out of my price range. It wan’t until I started looking at older graded cards that I realized one could be mine.
I love it.
