I'm 'nickel and dime-ing' my way through my Johnny Callison want list. He hasn't reached Billy Pierce's collection status. In other words I'm not going to go out and try to find every stupid Topps Lineage Canary Diamond sparkle card like I did with BP.
But I am trying to build a solid career-era collection and add will mix in assorted oddball post-career stuff when it's available cheaply. Same as I am doing with Elston Howard and a few others.
And Callison doesn't really have much in the way of Heritage-type cards. Most of them fall into the buyback/re-issue realm and if I have an 'original' I can do without the gold stamped versions.
This came from a Net54 member. Seriously miscut (but signed) '59 Rookie Stars. I love the design. Part of the appeal of the vintage sets I built were the subsets. The rookie and All-Star cards Topps birthed in those days were just so cool.
But when it came to the '65 Embossed...Topps whiffed. Actually, this Callison bears a decent resemblance to him. But go find the Yaz Embossed. That ain't Yaz.
Here's an example of a post-career card that was easy to add to my PC. 1981 TCMA Go-Go White Sox Callison.
The seller sent it in a Card Saver inside a PWE which is fine by me. But he used a sticker to seal the thing:
Even if you're selling cheap oddballs, do better.
