30 Day Baseball Card Challenge Day 10
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.
