This 1957 Topps Billy Pierce is among my favorite vintage cards. The '57 is the last Topps set that I have no childhood memories of. Therefore it is kind of majical in my eyes. Does that make sense? Maybe someday I'll make a decision to chase the whole thing. I've got the Orioles including the Brooks Robinson rookie, the Frank Robinson rookie, most of the Dodgers including the Koufax and Drysdale, a couple of other special cards and maybe 35 commons and semi-stars. But completing it would be a big expense and I doubt seriously I will undertake it any time soon. It would be fun as hell, though.
Anyway, it's a cool picture of Pierce in a warm-up pose at Yankee Stadium and it's signed in his usual neat hand. The only thing that could make this a better card is if I had been able to get him to sign it in person.
This next one is a Pacific Legends something or other that I got off eBay not long ago.
