Top 20 Recent Vintage Purchases - #5 1963 Topps Orlando Cepeda

The #5 card in the countdown is the 3rd and final Cepeda and happens to be the newest of the group coming from the 1963 Topps set.

This card ranks high in the countdown for several reasons.  First, the 1963 design is one of my favorites.  Second, there are two great photos on this card with a bat barrel in the larger photo and a smaller glove extended black and white in the circle.  I was a right handed first baseman growing up so I always enjoy a card featuring a right hander with the first baseman leather. The background on this card looks cool to me as well with the field extending on for what seems like forever.

Prior cards in the countdown:

#8 - 1962 Topps Frank Robinson All Star
#7 - 1962 Topps Juan Marichal
#6 - 1958 Topps Eddie Mathews
