1973 Topps Mike Schmidt



1958 Topps Sonny Jurgensen:



1957-58 Topps Tom Gola (Also a fellow La Salle Alumni )

Nice Schmidt, the case looks like a 4 but the card looks better than that to me. Is there something wrong with it I can't see in the scan?

I think it is definitely better than a 4. I have been meaning to crack it out of the case. Any advice on doing so?

-That Schmidt rookie presents well, above-grade look from the front for sure.

Nice PC, keep us updated!

Unfortunately I cracked the Schmidt open and there is a barely noticeable crease near Schmidt's face. It looks otherwise but at least it looks better out of the case. Good luck with your vintage pc...I'd love to take a look at it some time!
