I recently picked this card up as part of a trade:
It may not look like much, but it it is. A Hall of Famer, a lifelong Tiger, a fan favorite and the card that finally reduced a wantlist number to a single digit.
Back in September, I shared some cards from my 1955 Topps set-in-progress here. This Kaline card now drops the wantlist to 9 cards left. One digit...that's a big deal. Of course, all the cards left are Hall of Famers and some will be long-term prospects at my normal price range (Koufax, Clemente, probably Mays and Robinson as well). That said, every additional hole that gets filled in my binder is a big deal.
Happy New Year! - I decided that New Year's Day was the perfect time to feature the first card of the 1973 Topps set. That was back in 2011, and today is the first day since...
