The 'Vintage Player, Modern Card' Craze
I'm not sure how long this has been popular with Topps. Probably for awhile. But I've really noticed it since I began looking at contemporary cards again in the last two years after having been out of the card collecting hobby for quite some time. I'm sure someone can fill me in.
Last year I bought a rack pack or two of the regular Topps issue and Lineage among others. I got a couple of Sandy Koufax cards and it kicked my Koufax
love idolatry fanism collecting interest into high gear. As neat as some of these new Koufax cards are (lots of them have pictures I've never seen) they just can't touch the real vintage stuff. How great is the '57 Koufax?
