1954 NY Journal American Roy Campanella PSA 3: Buying A Whole Card

I occasionally go back through my main vintage PCs and see if there's anything I can upgrade for a reasonable price. I'm perfectly happy with what I already have but if I can really up the eye-appeal without destroying my wallet I jump at the opportunity. I was recently able to upgrade one such Roy Campanella card for about a blaster and a half.

I quite dig the 1954 New York Journal American set and the first Roy I landed was missing a chunk. I knew I'd definitely upgrade that eventually and recently a really nice PSA 3 example came up for auction. I decided to take the plunge, especially with it already being slabbed, and I couldn't be happier.

They really played a lot more double-headers back in the day. Sometimes I feel like I was born in the wrong era. Sometimes. A lot of the time.


  1. I remember going to a few double-headers in the 70's and 80's. Miss them days.

    P.S. Awesome card.
