The post in which I work blue (parental discretion required)


ARKY FUCKING VAUGHAN

There. I worked blue.

In all seriousness, I loved this card from the moment I saw it (maybe it's Arky's early demise or the photograph or something, dunno, but it's haunting), and spent a fair amount of time trying to nail it down before I nailed this off-center but still pretty specimen a little ways back. I've also been completely incapable of referring to this card as anything but the dirty name I gave it above, usually out loud, whenever I've looked at it online or in-person.

Ever see the back of a '60 Fleer card? If not, here:


Really crisp little design. Dig it.

  1. Thanks for that shot o' the back.

    I really wouldn't mind if Topps did this with the flagship set.

    Nothing wrong with old school.
