Card: 1966 Topps #238 Los Angeles Dodgers Team
What Was I Thinking?:
Man, sometimes those team cards can sneak up on you. You're building a vintage set, and you're pretty sure you've acquired all of the high-dollar star cards, and in the last dozen or so cards you need to finish it, there's a Yankees team card and a Dodgers team card. These can sometimes go for prices that, while not ridiculous, aren't exactly the commons you've mentally budgeted for. Those two teams, plus maybe the Cardinals and the Red Sox, always seem to command a premium. Getting a Dodgers team card for a buck fifty is a nice deal, even though I have no plans at present to pursue the '66 set.
Plus, that Koufax season: 26 W, 2.04 ERA, 382 SO. Jeezum Crow!
