Top Ten Week - Day 3

This entire week will be devoted to various Top Ten lists culled from the ol' card stacks. Because why not. These are mostly based on favoritism as opposed to 'best'. My favorites are based on my own eclectic, fanciful whims. Yeah that's right. I have whims. And they're fanciful. Wanna fight about it?
Links to Day 1 Day 2
Today, we'll check out the top ten 1952 Topps Cincinnati Reds. Limited, of course, to those I have. Too bad, because there are some pretty slick high-numbered Reds, but I foolishly choose house payments instead, month after month.

10. #142 Harry Perkowski
Perkowski made the ten-spot on Sunday, so why not again?

9. #113 Dick Sisler

Topps getting a head start on the pink parallel.

8. #144 Ed Blake
This version only available at Wal-Mart.

7. #161 Bud Byerly
'Sup, ladies?

6. #69 Virgil Stallcup
Decent card, save for the very slight head-chopped framing.

5. #6 Grady Hatton
Background is kind of in limbo between stadium stands and a reflection in a pond.

4. #135 Dixie Howell
Horizontal catcher shot holding up the banner? Nice.

3. #13 Johnny Wyrostek
Very regal, this one. Cool name, too.

2. #29 Ted Kluszewski
Moved up because it's big Klu, but it's still pretty sweet.

1. #297 Andy Seminick
This is my favorite, for a few reasons. It's a catcher, it's framed nice, it's horizontal, Seminick is a bruiser. Just a great card.

Soldiering on with Day 4 tomorrow, kiddies. Go Reds.
