Ten Best Cards From a $30 Lot: #1

It's shameful how often this blog is updated nowadays. The last time I posted, Bill Clinton was president, the Doritos Locos Taco had not yet been added to the Taco Bell menu, and we were still knee deep in Italian popes. This post better make the delay all worth it. The envelope, please...

#1
1960 Topps #10 Ernie Banks


If there was any question as to whether or not I had gotten my money's worth on this lot before, all suspicions are put to rest with this card. Ernie Banks are great in a non-threatening sort of way. There's the absence of that sinking feeling you might get when you get a card of a guy and it reminds you of the time he unilaterally crushed your team in the playoffs. Never happened. He's just Mr. Cub, and we salute him for it.
