The Drysdale Dilemma

Flipping through my vintage cards I found I had three 1969 Don Drysdale cards. I probably have a hundred of so vintage cards that I've kept from my youth. How I still have three Drysdales is a mystery. I don't remember being that much of a fan of his back then. Late 60s/early 70s was high school and college time. I didn't exactly collect cards religiously as I had prior to that. Plus, I was 101% focused on the Orioles then.

As for the cards themselves, they are all in about equal states of what most of us call 'well loved' condition. I think I'll keep one and flip the others. 


  1. Keep #3. :)

    I'll keep off-centre over dinged every time.

  2. Also - Chris Stufflestreet came up with an answer as to why Norm Miller was airbrushed in 1969:

    1. That's pretty cool. I'm looking forward to his longer post about it. Thanks for the link.
