A Scoop of Campy.

I try and pick up cards of Roy Campanella when I can, which of course is a nice way of saying when the price isn't prohibitive. One I was in need of recently popped up on eBay and I was more than happy to acquire it for a great price.


This gorgeous piece of cardboard is a 1961 Nu-Card Scoops which commemorates Campy winning the NL MVP in 1953. It's graded a Mint 9 by PSA with an off-center notation. It's in remarkable shape and ran me an even more remarkable $6 shipped.


It pairs oh so nicely with the 1960 Nu Hi-Lites card of Roy I picked up at my first ever card show earlier this year. The cards are essentially the same except that one is horizontal and one is vertical.

  1. Awesome card, I don't really see what caused it to get the (OC) marking. Very cool.
