2011 Card Countdown - Number 3

This is the third, and last, appearance of Johnny Antonelli in my 2011 countdown.

1954 Bowman - Johnny Antonelli

I bought this for $16 at COMC. I cannot even begin to describe the condition of this card. It literally looks like it was just pulled from a pack. Sharp corners and sides and a real nice gloss on the surface. I had wondered if it might have been a reprint, but I could find no evidence that this card has been reprinted. The '54 Bowman Mantle, sure. But not this one. A quick exchange over at Net54Baseball led me to finally conclude that this is the real thing.

Coming tomorrow: Something completely different.
