1955-57 Brooklyn Dodgers Picture Pack: Roy Campanella Portrait, PSA 6!

Today's post features a beautiful piece of cardboard I've owned for quite some time but have hesitated on posting due to scanner issues with bigger cards and bigger slabs. However, I've finally realized I can't get rid of the line down the middle of my scanner and until I get a new one it's just something I'll have to work around.


So here's the latest addition to my Roy Campanella PC: a 1955-57 Brooklyn Dodgers' Team Issue Picture Pack, slabbed a PSA 6. It was a steal at a bit over two blasters via eBay and is actually the highest copy VCP has ever tracked, which is kind of cool. I believe it's the highest PSA has ever graded as well. I love the simple photo of Roy donning his chest protector and the big smile he's flashing.

Prior to buying this I was going to buy the entire team set from work as I was not convincing enough to get it broken down and sold separately. The team set does have a sweet Jackie Robinson and maybe I'll one day still buy the set. For now I have the most important piece of the puzzle in-hand and safely in my Campy PC.

  1. Congrats on adding that great photo. Love the Picture Packs.

    FWIW...I've pretty much given up on scanning anything in slabs. Too much hassle. I'm just taking camera photos and doing the best I can with them.

    1. Thanks commish! And I got lucky with this one....the seller on eBay apparently bought this at auction before trying to flip it and the auction house had scanned it in beautifully, which I found through a random Google images search and promptly took to use above haha.

    1. Thanks Brian! It has felt much better spending the money this way, even though I feel I've been spending too much. At least it's on cards that hold value over time lol.
