A Stern Pafko

Here are a couple of my recent Andy Pafko PC collection additions. The first is an autographed 8 x 10 photo of a stern looking Handy Andy. Pafko was known for his positive attitude on the field and nearly all of his baseball cards feature a broad smile (including his famous 1952 Topps #1) and so when I came upon this signed photo with a very serious expression I had to add it to the collection.

The other pickup was a graded 1957 Spic and Span Andy Pafko in excellent condition. These promo cards were originally available from a chain of dry cleaners in Wisconsin and they are pretty rare to find in good shape. I was willing to spend a little bit on a nice graded copy (in a huge PSA plastic case by the way) and take a Pafko card off of my needs list.
