Non-Sports Card of the Day: A Little Buddy Relic

Today's non-sports card is the most modern card I've posted since I started daily posing selections from my non-sports P.C and it is also the first non-sports relic card I've highlighted. Today's entry comes from 2013 Panini Golden Age which is the sort of set a lot of collectors either love or hate. It features a checklist where you will find an Al Kaline card sitting next to Lyndon Johnson and Elizabeth Montgomery. I love cards for unexpected people and when I was flipping through the random hits at a card show somewhere in 2016, I just had to pick up this relic of Bob Denver, a.k.a. Gilligan from Gilligan's Island

Appropriately enough, Denver's base card in the set was #73 and card #74 was Alan Hale, Denver's co-star as the Skipper on Gilligan's Island. The back doesn't provide any information as to the origin of the clothing piece and so I doubt it is something from the era of the show. I was surprised to see that the show only ran for three seasons as it seemed like there were a million reruns on when I was a kid. But then again, I'm always surprised The Munsters was only ran for two seasons as well.
