New Arrival: Bob Feller, sp, Cleveland Indians

IMG_0003 copy

Another signed index card from the same lot that I bought the Early Wynn from.  Again, less than $10.

I dont think that I have a Bob Feller index card…and I thought it would be nice to add to my little Feller collection:

2005 Leaf Century Stamp Auto Jersey Bob Feller

Not much that I can say about Feller that you wont know.

    • Doby is always so pricey! I have missed out on a couple when bidding got out of hand. Plus its funny: getting guys who are deceased vintage HOF are easier than half the guys on the team now.
