Topps Diamond Giveaway Haul: 1965

Last one of these. This was the oldest card I ended up with in the Topps Diamond Giveaway.

1965
#163 John Briggs

Despite numerous trade offers, I held onto this card. First of all, 1965 Topps is pretty enough to take to the prom. And second, Johnny Briggs became a mainstay on some of the early Brewers teams. This is Briggs' second Topps card, the first being a '64 Phillies Rookie Stars card he shared with Danny Cater.

And that's all she wrote with the TDG. See you next year, maybe, if I decide to buy any Topps Series 1.

That's a nice one. I really like the '65 set.
