These were just too cool not to show off. See what you started Zippy when you let me join the club!
This is a hitting and pitching T206 of Lefty Leifield. I'm not a big fan of buybacks, but these are nice in the sense that the actual card is not compromised. Topps just added the frame around the card. The odds of hitting one of these in a pack were about 1:4000 so they were a tough get. Thank God they didn't put a big stamp on the actual card. That would have been a crime.
Both of these were purchased together a couple weeks back on eBay. This same seller was liquidating a large collection of these. It was really hard not to go crazy and try to buy a bunch in one sitting. Cooler heads prevailed and I was able to get the one lot that really fits into my collection.
Thanks for reading!
