Sometimes things just fall into your lap.

I am sure you are wondering what is so great about this.  It is a 1967 Paul Blair. Surely I already have one in my player collection? Indeed I do.  But, this isn't any ordinary 1967 Paul Blair.

That is right!  A 1967 Topps Venezuelan! I never thought I would own one, but this came up on EBay at a reasonable price and I had to jump on it. Sure it is has some worn corners and a crease, but it was in the affordable range for me, so I got it. Decent versions of this card in the can go for $100 to $200 range.  Indeed, there is a PSA 2 3 version on EBay with a BIN price of $99.99.  I got this version, which was actually PSA 2 (Good), for less than a third of that.  It will set back my quest to complete the 1973 set a few weeks, but it is well worth it!
