You can see there's some pretty heavy water staining on this card.  Other than that it's in fantastic shape.  It actually has one corner that nearly comes to a point and is crease free.

  2. That's a cool story. I spent a summer working in a souvenir shop in Cooperstown with Clete Boyer after my freshman year of college.

    If you weren't paying $10 for one of the autographed 8x10 he hawked in the back he didn't have the time of day for you, that went for the employees too.
