An Excellent Heinie And Another Slew Of Lew

You never know what will happen when you simply drop a comment at a blog, but if the blog is Number 5 Type Collection, and it’s a contest post like Matthew’s Fourth Anniversary HOF Contest, well, you may already be a winner!

Not only did I win the Heinie Manush card below, but he included a nice upgrade for my ’73 Kaat!

1973 Topps #530 Jim Kaat; 1961 Fleer #57 Heinie Manush

Thanks, and congrats again on the four years!

I’m not a Lew Ford “supercollector” by any stretch, but I tend to be more on the lookout for his cards when I’m bored and I scan eBay in the evenings. Here are a few picked up at reasonable prices over the past couple weeks:
