The 100 Best Finds in a 30-Dollar Lot: #93

1965 Topps #328 Eddie Fisher

1965 Topps cards will never not look good. I can, however, think of something (or someone, rather) that once looked amazing, but now does not look good.

Follow me here. When I saw this card, I thought the name Eddie Fisher sounded familiar. As it turned out, Eddie Fisher, who died last September, was a famous entertainer. He had a child with an even more famous singer and dancer, Debbie Reynolds. That child was Carrie Fisher, best known for playing Princess Leia Organa.

Back in 1977, and especially back in 1983, you might have thought to yourself, "Carrie Fisher will never not look good." I believe no further elaboration is necessary.
