30 Day Baseball Card Challenge Day 10

Day 10: One of your favorite cards from the 1960's.

It took me a second to pick a card, but I knew which set it was going to be coming from.  A few years back I decided I wanted to try and start putting a vintage set together.  And for some reason I decided on 1963 Topps.  Had I given it a little more thought I might have picked a different set, with the Mantle and Pete Rose rookie sitting like two Mt. Everest's in the set.  But I love the design, I also really like the 1965 set design.  But anyways, I've been slowly picking up a card here and there. Sometimes a couple small lots.  It's taken a back seat recently with trying to sell and buy a new house, but so far I've managed to put together about 15% of the set and added some big names too.

I decided to pick the Duke to represent my choice.  Not super high grade, but well within the set condition I set for myself.  I also liked when I picked up this card I also got his 1964 Topps as well, both card feature Duke as a Met, but I'll always remember him as a Dodger.

  1. The 1965 Topps design is one of my all-time favorites... and the 1963 is somewhere in my Top 20. Definitely weird seeing Snider as a Met... but that's a really nice card.
