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.

    1. Thanks. I'm glad Ronnie's in the Hall of Fame but I don't think it's really given his cards much of a boost. I guess those who didn't care about him before aren't impressed by his posthumous credentials.

  2. I don't own a 1/1. I had one for about 10 minutes before I sent it to Pat at Hot Corner Cards.
