The Late, Great Duke Snider

After Duke Snider passed away earlier this year, I wanted to grab a couple of his cards. I was fortunate enough to have already snagged an auto of his, a beautiful TTM Auto I acquired via trade. While I do have a couple of the newer Snider cards Topps seemingly puts out every year, I wanted at least one vintage Duke.

I headed down to the good old vintage shop and was able to grab both of these for roughly $2-3. I know some people consider 1970s cards vintage, but I don't.

1961 Post Cereal

1977 TCMA Renata Galasso

For the longest time I had no idea what TCMA stood for. Some intense Googling provided me with the answer.

R.I.P. Duke.
