Vintage Fridays: Jackie Brandt, 1963 Post #58
Among my vintage bargain buys last Sunday at the Philly Card Show were a whole mess of early 1960s Post Cereal cards. Most were 50 cents or a dollar, and almost all were in better condition than poor Jackie Brandt here. But for a couple of quarters, tape discoloration and a drawn-on "1" in front of the card number give it a little bit of character, much like Jackie himself.
I can remember playing with baseball cards as a toddler, but I actually started collecting them when I was ten. Now I'm an adult looking for an outlet to talk about my hobby without receiving blank stares in return. You can contact me thusly.
