Instagram Pickup - 1959 Topps Roger Maris
Anyway, back to the card that I got. I bought the card from a nice kid named Joey, whom I have traded with before. He made me an amazing deal for this card that I really couldn't turn down. Writing or not. So, I have this Roger Maris card. With the KC A's scratched out and NY Yanks written in on it in what is seemingly the handwriting of a kid from back in the early 1960s. It also looks like someone tried in vain to erase the ink, but clearly they failed. My 1959 set is far from Mint, so I technically could keep this card as part of my set, or I could hold onto it as a separate card. I looked and I would be very lucky to get another Maris for my set for less than $50, so I really may be inclined to mark this one off of my checklist for good. I just don't know.
Regardless, I appreciate Joey hooking me up with th card and I really do enjoy it. We'll see if it makes the cut, so to speak. As of right now, I am leaning toward putting it in the set. Anyone have any thoughts?
