Awesome Vintage Cards In An Instagram Trade With Jet
Jet is putting together the 1954 Topps set and already has a bunch of the cards. He has one of the biggest cards in the set,the Hank Aaron RC, which, to me, is amazing. Pretty awesome that this guy has already knocked out a sweet RC; a legendary one, at that!
So, I wanted to help him out and found several 1954s that he needed and worked up a deal with him. Jet clearly won the trade, but that was my intention all along. I wanted to give a little boost to a kid who was spending his allowance on something of substance, instead of wasting it on current fads, or even worse.
The key card I sent Jet was the 1954 Topps Whitey Ford, Jet's favorite player. The other 54s I got him were very low grade, but he was perfectly content with them and accepted them with no problem.
Jet worked up a decent enough package so that I wouldn't feel like he wiped the floor with me in winning the trade and it included the above PSA graded 4 1969 Brooks Robinson. I already have a graded 1967 Brooks, so this 1969 (with a very similar photo on the front of the card) will go right beside it.
