I started thinking about this series of posts a while back and even had all the cards identified a couple weeks back. But, I have been remiss in actually doing anything with it due to a variety of reasons. So, instead of one post per card, I am going to break it down into three posts only.
So, in reverse order, here are 12 through 9:
12. 2012 Topps Archive 3D Babe Ruth
I got this card from the mysterious Napkin Doon. It seems like your typical 3D insert, but what I like about it is that only background moves when you tilt it back and forth.
11. 1971 Topps #709 (Dusty Baker and Don Baylor RC)
10. 1960 Fleer Ed Barrow
This card of a rather avuncular Ed Barrow is the most unlikely entry on this list. But, as the architect behind the Yankee dynasty of the first half of the 20th Century, surely he is a noteworthy person? And before you answer, consider that the Hall of Fame agrees with me.
9. 2013 Topps Archive 72 Mini Lou Gehrig
I got this card from Night Owl. This card tickles me to no end. Not only is it The Yankee Clipper, one of the best ballplayers ever, but it is done in the fun 1972 Topps design. I am looking forward to building '72 Topps.
So, there are the first four. Stay tuned for four more tomorrow.
