My First 1/1
I'm probably the last one in our blog family to own a 1/1. Ron Santo 1/1's are very rare. I'm not even sure if I've ever seen one before on Ebay. Hard to believe but this one cost me a measly $.99 +shipping. I was the only bidder. The scan is misleading. What appears gray is really silver as the whole border is foil. This was apparently given out as a promotion at the Kit Young Hawaii Trade Conference in 2003. See the detail for the embossed stamp. I've included a base card below for comparison. I'm not sure where the "Statline" on the upper left comes in. It seems to be on all the serial numbered version of theses cards.
