The Giants Win The Pennant

Of all the 1952 Topps cards I'd love to win from the 1,000,000 Card Giveaway the top one would be card #1 Andy Pafko. Close behind it would be #274 Ralph Branca.

Not only is it apart of the Flipping, Trading master set I am working on, it is also the first card made after Mr. Branca's pitch that will live in infamy:

Ungraded cards are going for $35-$60 on eBay and so I'll have to be content with this shiny version from Topps Archives Reserve:

The archives reserve is one of the best releases ever. My dream autograph card is in it. The willie mays on card gem. Its my holy grail. I came close to trading for the relic version, but it fell through.

Damn nice Branca card though..
