My Favorite Valentines Day Card

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.


I've wanted this card for a couple of decades. I read a biography about Yastrzemski back when I was a teenager and have wanted to own this card ever since, but it has always been out of my price range. Over the years I've tried finding a copy in my price range, but haven't been succesful. A few years ago there was a copy a The Batter's Box card shop for $125 and I tried to see if I could get it for $100, but by the time I made it back, it was sold. I haven't seen one at a card shop until just recently, but this time the card was priced at $225. Online copies in almost every condition end up going for well over $100, so I had pretty much counted myself out for the time being. That is until this copy popped up on a Facebook auction site that I'm a part of and I was able to snag it for $39 shipped.

The front of the card isn't perfect, but overall the centering is nice and I am super happy! The reason I was able to get it for the price I did is because of the back. There is some paper loss, but again, for the price I can't complain.

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?

  1. I think in these times, $40 for a 1960 all-time great rookie in presentable condition is a great buy.

  2. This card is the best thing that good ol' Wes Moore ever sent me, and he's sent me a lot of good stuff!

    I've received current-year cards on Valentine's Day in the recent past. It's a good holiday for it because it's always around release day. But that wasn't happening this year.

  3. Very nice Valentine's Day card. I got hooked up this year with some Japanese BBQ sauce, a shirt, and a delicious prime rib dinner. The crazy thing is we usually don't exchange presents, so I ended up buying her some pizza cupcakes she saw on Shark Tank last Friday.
