Yeah, I know it's May. I have no idea when the next card show will be in Atlanta so I need to stretch this out as long as possible. As much as I want to hop in the car and drive to the next White Plains show, gas is expensive. So here's a card.
This was the most expensive card I bought at the show, running $14.50. Sam played for the Giants for a season in 1950 before serving in the military in 1951 and 1952. He was back with the Giants in '53 and scored a rookie card in the '53 high set. Sammy played with Milwaukee in 1954 after being involved in a trade for Johnny Antonelli. His '54 Topps card was the first one I ever got for the 1954 scarce 51-75 series. The guy has two Topps cards ever and both are short printed. Thanks to the Archives sets, Calderone cards are plentiful now. This wasn't the only '53 card I scammed at the show, you'll get to see the other one before the Mayans doom us all, I promise.
