Yesterday I discussed what football card I would get with a 500 dollar limit. Today I am looking at baseball. Picking a baseball card is different for me than picking a football card. Baseball cards have a longer history with more legends than football does. To pick a baseball card for this challenge I decided I would look for:
1. Professional graded – If I am going to spend that kind of dough, it had darn well be real.
2. Pre WW2 – I only have two pre WW2 cards and I would like more.
3. A Big Time name or set – I want something that is off the charts cool.
Here are some of the ones I would consider.
Tobacco cards of Cy Young, Walter Johnson or Christy Matthewson? Getting closer…
But, for the one I personally would pick, I went a bit of the board.
Mind bendingly cool set? Check.
Native of Indiana? Bonus Check.
I know its 150 bucks under budget, but I think I would pick the Three Finger Brown T3. It is just too darn cool.
