Vintage = clickbait. Oddballs = clickbait. Vintage oddballs = holy shite so much clickbait!!!!!
Yeah that's right. I'm being shameless all week by showcasing everyone's favorite subcategory. I will clarify that vintage, to me and most, is 1979 and earlier. I will also note that I don't consider anything before 1950 an oddball since everything before 1950 is pretty odd, and if we're all special, unique snowflakes then none of us are, ya dig?
Today we're going big. As in oversized. 1950's Red Man Tobacco and 1960's Kahn's Wieners.
1953 Red Man Bobby Adams. They abandoned the background in favor of highlighter yellow and a faint aura around the player. Shame.
1955 Red Man Gus Bell. Ah, they brought back the grandstands. So much better. I love these cards. I have 4 of 8 Reds printed over the four year run. If it wasn't against my rules to set specific goals, completing this set would be high on the list.
1960 Kahn's Gus Bell. Some wiener leakage caused this card to stick to the packaging, I presume. Did I just win the 'First Card Blogger to Mention Wiener Leakage' award? I think so.
Part 2 tomorrow, kiddies. Go Reds.
