COMC Goodness - Part 1/3

Dropped a dollar or two at COMC. Y'all know what that's all about. Like last time, I focused on modern stuff, but I still had to nab some vintage. Here we go.

1952 Bowman Joe Adcock. This is a tremendously good-looking card. I've been spying it for years and finally pulled the trigger for more than I usually spend on stuff like this. Not that it wasn't a deal. Six bucks for copy in good shape. Shibby.

1975 Topps Minis Joe Morgan, Tony Perez. Hall of fame. Vintage. Mini. Mmmmmmmm,

1962 Topps World Series #237. Yeah, not totally a Reds card. But the Reds were in '61 Series, so, as a completist, I'd like this entire subset, Reds photo or no. The Series' stats for the Reds are on the back, so that eases my cockles just a little.

1959 Topps Del Ennis White Back. I had the gray back. I'm going after the 'master set', as 6 Reds have both versions. I have 5.

1982 Topps Anthony Munoz RC. Not quite vintage. Whatever. Best Olineman of all time. First real card. First Bengals card purchase in a while. Read up on Munoz if you haven't.

1956 Topps Joe Nuxhall. Nice post closer right herrrr. Yes, that is a UER with his name. They got it correct on the back at least. Who doesn't love the '56 flagship, I ask? "This is the old left-hander, rounding third and heading for home."

Go Reds.


  1. I think the 59's have another back variation in the hi series

    1. what is it? i'm not aware of it and I don't see any mention in checklists.

    2. I don't think you'll have to chase any additional cards. It's just that the last series has a different back than the earlier series
