199 of 407   48.9% complete
How acquired: $8.75 on ebay
Condition: Very Good
I don't really know what I was thinking when I went so high to get this card.  It's one I've wanted for awhile, and just got sick of losing out.  I'm sure with a little more patience I could have found a copy closer to the $5 range I would have preferred, but I'll live.  As it is, the card is in very nice shape.  Kennedy was never an All-Star, but he stuck around for sixteen seasons, though it looks like he was only an every day starter in three of those years.  Bob got to watch a lot of major league baseball.

Stats: 16 seasons, 1,176 hits, 63 HR, .254 avg, '48 WS Ring with Cleveland

Best Hall of Fame Showing: N/A


  1. And he wears he cap at a jaunty angle!

    Seriously sometimes every vintage set builder dents his budget. Lord knows I do quite a bit. The bargains make up for it though, right?

  2. @Commishbob For sure. And there's a difference between denting your budget by paying a fair price, and doing so by over-paying. As long as it's the former I don't worry about it too much.
