When Decrative Scissors Attack

No, this card isn't the result of a little kid grabbing a pair of scissors and trimming a little off the side of a card...instead this is a Denny McLain card from a weird little set called Topps Deckle Edge. The card is #8 from a set of 35 that came out in 1969 and today books at $120.00 mint. The key card is the Roberto Clemente and, believe it not, Jim Wynn. This is because Topps numbered the Jim Wynn and Hoyt Whilhelm both card #11.

I enjoy the blue signature on the black and white photo and I did a double take as to if it might be a genuine signature when I first saw the card.
