Jim Palmer’s Glorious 1966 Topps Rookie Baseball Card

Jim Palmer’s Glorious 1966 Topps Rookie Baseball Card

When I decided a few years back that I wanted to pay tribute to Jim Palmer and his Hall of Fame career, I knew that some cards would be tougher to obtain.

And while I am not so finicky that I will not accept good or very good condition baseball cards in my collection, I am patient enough to wait it out long enough to know that I have found one that will make me happy.

And you know what, it took quite some time, but I eventually brought one into my collection.

And it is superb – Have a look:

There are a lot of great rookie cards that were issued in the 1960’s – and many of them feature multiple players.  Form Jenkins to Carew to Ryan to Rose to Seaver to Morgan to Bench.  It is nice to see the 20-year old Palmer on his own baseball card in his Topps debut.  I wonder who he knew at the company to get the solo card…
