June Vintage Card Show Loot: 4th of July Edition


So I was in marching band when I was in high school. I was only in the band my Junior and Senior years due to poor life choices but I relished what little time I had blowing spit through large brass tubes. The music that is most fun to blow through massive brass tubes with a gigantic bell at the end is the music of John Philip Sousa. Just listen to this, enjoy how fun it is then think about how awesome it would be to actually cause that music to come into being.

Such delicious notes...

So as for the card, this is an example of a 1952 Topps Look 'n See card. I've made a habit of picking these up here and there when I see 'em. there was a parge pile of the buggers at the show and I was having a hard time choosing which one to get when John showed up. This card hit too many pleasure centers in my brain.. American flag, musical staff, epic mustache. The quiz on the back references the tune linked above but the scan didn't come out too well and I don't have any red cellophane.

Enjoy the holiday folks...
