I got this card in the mail a week or so ago, but I waited to show it off on the blog today because "technically" this was my Valentines Day gift from my wife. It was one of those situations where I bought the card for myself and then in between my purchasing it and it arriving, my wife asked me what I wanted for Valentines Day and so I told her she didn't have to get me anything because I already took care of it.
It looks like someone put tape on the back of the card to display it and it didn't end well for that one particular corner. But ultimately I'm glad it happened, because it's the only reason I own this card. In fact, I think this is my favorite Valentines Day present, or Valentines Day card, I've ever gotten. How about you? Did you get any hobby related Valentines Day gifts today? Or maybe not today, but in the past?

Yesterday I shared the 1952 Topps Minnie Minoso card I purchased this past Saturday at The Batters Box card shop. I picked up a couple other 1952 Topps cards. Here is one of them.
Other than the Mickey Mantle card, this Gus Zernial card might well be the most iconic card from this set. It's certainly an image that is hard to forget. The "Philadelhia" Athletics slugger, wearing a pink undershirt, featured with with a bat with 6 baseballs attached.
What do you think? Aside from the Mantle, is there a more iconic card from the set than this Zernial card? And yes, I know there is a Mays card in the set as well.
