1975 Topps, John Mayberry
#95 John Mayberry
I know. John Mayberry again? Yes and I apoligize. I know that I'm not mixing it up very well. The bad thing is that I have another Mayberry scheduled for tomorrow. But, it will be short and I will do another post after it to break up the monotany. I might do this a few times in the next couple of weeks since there are going to be some repeats.
Anyways, here is the second card that he signed for me last month. I actually bought this card a little over a year ago. I didn't have any Mayberrys and Royals Fanfest was coming up. So, about five days before the event, I decided to purchase one off of ebay. I figured that would be plenty of time to get it shipped to me since the dealer I bought it off of was in-state. Well, apperantly I did not read all of the information on the page because it turned out that the seller did not accept paypal (how does an ebay card dealer not except paypal?). So, I bought this card, sent a check, waited ten days for the check to clear, and then received the card two weeks after Fanfest. At least I was able to get it signed this year. Better late than never.
I love the '75 Topps. These cards were before my time, but I do have a few of them. This one is probably the one that is in the best shape for me. It's too bad Upper Deck couldn't do a better job with the OPC inserts this year. I guess we'll have to wait fifteen years and see how Topps does on their 2024 Topps Heritage.
