2014 Card-vent Calendar: December 3

December 3, 2014:
1965 Topps #109 Walt Bond

Every once in a while I've run across a vintage card that's been marked up by a kid who wanted to keep things straight. The most common post-production editing was done to indicate that a player had been traded to a team other than the one he was pictured as, sort of a DIY "Traded" series card.

In this example, you've got to admire the conviction of a young collector from days gone by to stick poor Walt Bond in a typewriter to assign him to a team.

It would have been infinitely more impressive had he actually ever played for the Mets.
