1952 Topps #135 - Dixie Howell
Typing this as my Reds are going into the bottom of the 8th inning in an attempt to win their series against Washington. Go Redlegs. Here we have a card that is, in the eyes of Red Cardboard, in excellent condition. Why excellent? Because when it's beat up like this, I can actually acquire it. I love catchers. I love '52 Topps. I love how it looks like Howell is holding the banner. I love the creases. I love the round corners. I love the sideways design. Just perfect. My '52 collection is slowly growing. This pleases me.
