One of These Things is Not Like the Others

I won a lot of 15 Ron Santo cards on ebay last week.  I already own all of them and in most cases several copies.  So why did I shell out $2.24?  Well, there was one card I didn't have.  Now it's time to play our game:

Here's 9 of the 15

Can you tell me which one?  Scroll down for the answer.

Yep, you were right!  It's a 1969 or 1970 Transogram.  There's a little ding on the right edge about a third of the way down.  Otherwise it's in excellent shape.  Scratch another vintage oddball piece off my list.

Here's what a complete panel looks like:
 And here's a box with the figures:


  1. Wow you are Psychic how did you know I picked the Transogram card? Wow that one is a fine specimen cut nicely.

  2. I picked the Transogram, too! I've been looking for a budget version of the card for a while. I hope I can find one at the bargain price you paid.

  3. I guess correctly as well. I'll have to see if I have either of those two All-Time Fan Favorites Santo cards.

  4. We are so smart. S-M-R-T!

    1. Card bloggers are very smart. Maybe in an idiot savant way (are we still allowed to use that term?) but we do know our cards.

  5. Very nice pick up. I hope to hit lotto so I can afford the Yankees I've seen. 5 grand for a Mantle grade 8. Yeesh.

  6. I've never seen or heard anything about these cards (or figures). Very cool. Thanks for sharing and congratulations on adding it to your collection.
