Top 20 Recent Vintage Purchases - #9 1959 Topps Orlando Cepeda

The card coming in at #9 is the 2nd of 3 Orlando Cepeda cards in the countdown and is the oldest of the group.

The 1959 design is a popular one with collectors and this Baby Bull card doesn't disappoint.  I like the green border and have always been a fan of the lowercase names and Giants logo on these cards.  I would like to see more than a portrait shot when possible but the youthful smile makes for a great card image.  Another Sportlots auction winner and I got a pretty good deal on this one as well.
