Cleve's Auction Night: Some Vintage and a Gwynn Jersey

Along with sparking my 3 year old daughter's interest in cards yesterday at Cleve's, I picked up my winnings from last Tuesday's auction.  I only spent $7 total, but got a very nice group of cards.

These 2 1966 Topps cards are in pretty decent shape.  A few minor creases here and there, but nothing really noticeable.    They're perfect for the sampler album, and with these, my 1966 page is looking pretty solid. 
I also picked up this 1955 Wally Moon, which is in great shape.  Besides a great unibrow, Moon has a very solid MLB resume:  1954 ROY, 3 time All Star, a Gold Glove and 2 World Series rings.

Speaking of strong resume's- I also added this cool Tony Gwynn jersey card.  It's kind of hard to tell from the scan, but the swatch is brown- the first brown jersey piece in my Gwynn collection.


1966 Cepeda and Stargell Lot  $3:  A+  $1.50 each for vintage Hall of Famers?  C'mon dude!

1955 Wally Moon  $2:  A+    A 1955 of a very good player in NM condition?  C'mon dude!

Tony Gwynn Jersey Card  $2:  A+    A brown jersey swatch of my favorite all time player?  C'mon dude!

I am so jealous of the Willie. That is a sweet look of a young Pops. You can never go wrong with anything that has Tony on it. Nice wins my friend!
