1952 Topps #151 Wally Post RC

First up, go vote in The Non-Topps Non-Bowman Reds Vintage Tournament, if you haven't already.

Picked this up for a song recently. Any '52 Topps is tough. Any '52 Topps RC is tougher. Any '52 Topps in decent shape is tougher still. This is all three. Nice.

Wally Post is a Reds Hall of Famer, spending 12 of his 15 seasons in Cincinnati. His lone All Star nod was in 1957, but was taken away by Commissioner Ford F#%$k. Yeah, so the city of Cincinnati had a systematic ballot stuffing campaign resulting in 7 All Star starters. So what? Blame the game, not the gamer. Post and teammate Gus Bell were forced out and replaced with a couple scrubs; Henry Aaron and William Mays. Pshaw.

This brings me two cards away from completing the non-high number team set. I will certainly overpay for them in due time.

Go Reds.

    1. The 52 high numbers really suck. They are the only topps Redsox base cards I don't have

    2. Yeah, there are soooooo few hanging around. My Reds have 9. all going for hundreds. Such is life.
