Removing the Floating Head

Page 22 of the Hall of Fame Binder yielded a floating head. Poor Travis Jackson!
Ghastly, if I do say so.

As soon as I finished writing the post I scampered off to Ebay to see what I could do about finding a replacement.
For $3, which included shipping, I was able to find a 58 year old piece of cardboard that not only had Travis Jackson's head, but also a body. What a deal!
 Thank goodness for 1961 Fleer Baseball Greats! For the record, this card was produced 21 years before Jackson got the call to Cooperstown.

The HOF Binder has been updated and I'm much happier. 😀

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your weekend!

  1. Yeah, almost anything would be an improvement over that Baseball Immortals thing, but this is a very nice card in its own right.

  2. Well, I see I'm the outlier ... you're banishing a great card. Got to get me one of those.

  3. I love me some floating heads... and Baseball Immortals rule! But Fleer Greats isn't too shabby either. There's no wrong answer in my humble opinion.

  4. I like the replacement card a lot better than the first as well.
