30 Day Card Challenge - Day 10

Day 10 is :one of your favorite cards from the 1960s."  This is my first post in which I don't own the card.  In this case, it's one of the cards at the top of my want list.

The 1962 Marhoefer set is the only one from the era that pictures drivers from the same era.  Other sets depict previous Indianapolis 500 winners.  A.J. Foyt is not only an open-wheel icon, but he is one of the best drivers in the history of auto racing.

I found a forum post where one vintage racing collector stated that he'd never seen one of these for sale other than in a completed set.  The picture above was taken from eBay, so there has been a single show up.  However, the $795 price was a bit out of my comfort zone.  If a copy of the Lloyd Ruby card ever surfaces, I hope that I can afford it.  It's the other card that I want from the set.  Someday.

If you shop online and haven't signed up and used ebates yet, you're missing out.  I also use it on eBay to get money back.  Between referrals and cash back, I've gotten over $100 in about six months.  FREE CARDS!  If you're on Twitter, please give me a follow.  Happy collecting!


  1. Don't know much about racing, but this card is really cool.

    1. There is so much baseball in the blogosphere. I'm happy to bring a little something different to the game.
