#6 - Steve Garvey

So why is this card #6 on my list?  It is all about the chase for the PSA 9.  I know i will not be able to afford a PSA 9 of his rookie card anytime soon with those sensitive black borders on the 1971's.  So here you have the next best thing.  the 1972 is a high number edition as you see with #686.  Topps used to roll out the cards as the season went along in different series, and I think this was the last of the 6 series.  Since it was the last series, and it comes out late in the season, they do not produce as many, and the cards are a bit harder to find.  For example, in 2011, Topps will have 2 series, and a traded/update set later.  Series 2 comes out in June.  

 

I had a PSA 8 card forever and I always wanted a 9.  I held that 8 for almost 5 years, and when card prices tumbled a couple years ago, cards that used to sell for 3-400 were now available around 200.  That is when I jumped in, and have this great card.  Although the card is quite ugly in design, it has a great picture of Steve, and the stripe on the sleeve is visible.  I love that blue stripe on the uniform.  

What stadium do we think that is?  Riverfront?
