Random Topps Card of the Day: 1962 Topps #277 4th Series Checklist #265 to #352

It's Retro Sunday!!! Thanks to the Topps Card Randomizer, introducing the Random Topps Card of the Day for Sunday, February 10, 2013:

  • Official Card Set Name and Card Number: 1962 Topps #277.
  • Special: 1962 Fourth Series Checklist #265 Joe Adcock - #352 Frank Sullivan
  • Commentary: The Randomizer has finally done something it has not done since it made it's debut back in 2010: that's select a checklist of any kind. This one is from the fourth series from 1962 Topps and gives the collector a place to check off the cards they have from the 88-card series. The nine Action Cards (#'s 311 through 319) were of that famous subset featuring Tony Kubek, Warren Spahn, Roger Maris, Rocky Colavito, Whitey Ford, Harmon Killebrew, Stan Musial, Mickey Mantle, and Mike McCormick. For posterity, this is the first time that I am also showing the back of the card, so you can see the names of the players on the back of the list. Bet many kids were disappointed when they opened their one card pack to find this card staring at them instead of say Hank Aaron (#320), or Willie Mays (#300), Billy Williams (#288), or even Frank Robinson (#350). Looking back, it would not have been such a bad thing to have.
  • Lo-Hi Beckett value: $8.00-$20.00.

In case you're actually wondering, I don't own this card, but was able to get a crystal clean copy of the image from the from the Baseball Card Cyber Museum. So thank you Joe McAnally and the folks at the BCCM.

Well, it's back to normal on Monday. Tomorrow's card will be: 2007 Topps #515. Post will arrive at 1:00 PM CST. Come on back then to see what the Topps Card Randomizer gets us to look at then.
