This is the first Seaver RC I've ever owned, and the high number 1961 Maris is just plain beautiful!!

Thank you, Mike. I don't have it in hand yet, but the seller (whom I trust) assured me no creases--corner and edge wear primarily accounted for the grade. Maybe a little surface wear. All in all, right up alley.

Nice Jackie Jenson! The 1958 AL MVP.

Jensen announced his retirement from baseball in January 1960, primarily because of an intense fear of flying. As teams had increasingly turned to air travel in the 1950s, he had unsuccessfully sought to combat his aversion to flying, aided considerably by Red Sox owner Tom Yawkey, who arranged for therapy treatments. Once major-league baseball expanded to the West Coast in 1958, and with further expansion and constant air travel foreseen, these difficulties became virtually insurmountable.

Jensen returned to play for Boston in 1961, but turned to hypnotherapy when his panic attacks at airports became unbearable. Frustrated by a sub-par season (.263, 66 RBIs), he retired again for good.

Thanks...that card has proven difficult to track down both centered and at a reasonable price!

They are both sweet cards.

Bob Swift was the Tigers catcher in the famous 1951 Eddie Gaedel photo.
