1966 and 1967 Topps with a dash of '56

Following on from the 1955 Bowman, the same seller had a small stack of cards from 1966 and 1967 Topps cards for sale. I actively search out 1964 Topps and have a few '66 and '67, so this was a lucky find. What came as a surprise was the added bonus of the 1956 Topps #280 Jim Gilliam. I had noticed on the auction picture, a solitary '56 Topps but it was partially hidden so I concluded that it was either in poor condition or so badly aligned that it was a waste of the sellers time to list it separately.

When it comes to vintage, I apologies to those offended by referring to 1956 as vintage, they appear rarely so I am not concerned by condition. One day maybe, but today I am happy to add to my collection. The card arrived and is in good condition, a little high on the card but still great. So the bonus was the '66 and '67 Topps.

Wow, great cards. I love the '56s, and if I ever discover I have a long-lost great uncle who left me an inheritance, that's where the money will be going.
