Happy Birthday Sandy Koufax!

Sandy Koufax turns 83 today. Hard to believe that Koufax was only 30 years old when he retired from baseball. It's even harder to believe that he accomplished so much in so little time. Three Cy Young awards, an MVP,  a four time World Series Champion (twice named World Series MVP) and four no-hitters; including a perfect game.

When I saw on Twitter this morning that it was his birthday, my first thought was this would be a good opportunity to let go of my Koufax cards and my next thought was "But I don't want to get rid of my Koufax cards" in a 4 year old girl whiny voice.

I have two vintage Koufax cards (1956 and 1963 Topps) and I like them. I don't want to get rid of them. I literally just started downsizing and I can't do it...or can I? I can keep both of these cards for my Topps Page-a-Year project. Sweet!

I have a few modern Koufax cards though that can go. Let me know if you're interested. $5 shipped in a bubble mailer for the 12 cards.

We all know how Topps loves to reuse photos.

This card is beautiful and the scan does not do it justice. I wish I didn't have to let go of this one, but I've got to draw the line somewhere.

This is one of the Berger's best insert cards, not his actual rookie card.

  1. Damn. He retired fifty-three years ago? Both of those SC cards and the UD Masterpieces card are awesome!
