1962 Topps Billy Williams

1962 Topps Billy Williams

I finally got around to picking one of these up.  This is Williams’ 2nd year card and I love the overall look.  The 1962 Topps set was able to capture something that the 1987 issue couldn’t do – look realistic.  Maybe it’s because this card is 40+ years old and has the feel of a vintage card?

I don’t know.  But, what I do know is that I am thrilled to have finally found one of these in pretty good condition.  I am finding that the cards with the odd-themed borders like ’62 and ’71 Topps are much harder to find with good centering.  I guess when the border is white things kind of blend better, but with this issue an off-center card sticks out like a sore thumb!!!

One more card that I can check off my list!
