While Clevenland is still in town to face the Phils, I wanted to put together one more Indians related post.
2010 National Chicle Trips Speaker w/ original artwork - thetoppsvault auction
This auction for the above card/artwork from thetoppsvault just concluded for $83.75.
The pricepoint of the auction is not really my concern here, but my question is what the heck is with Tris Speaker in a Phillies uniform. He never played for the the Phils - he is primarily known as playing with the Indians or Red Sox , but did finish his career with the Philadlephia A's.
Has anyone seen this card in the "original' form as a Phillies player - I think I have only seen the Indians version. I could almost see Chicle putting out an Athletics version of the card, as Speaker likely was never issued a A's card way back in 1928.
I know folks have had various issues with the Topps Baseball-Chicle cards. Just add this one to the Sloppy Topps list.
