#88 Boom Boom Geoffrion PSA 2
I don't collect this set. I don't really go after graded cards (especially PSA 2 grades). I don't collect vintage Habs. I don't really know why I picked this card up.
I saw it, was really trying to figure out why it graded so low and grabbed it for the $10cdn that it was priced at. Heck, the cost to grade it is that much.
Can't deny that it's a nice looking card upon first glance.
Bernie was just 170 pounds?? He would definitely not last in the league at that size these days.
And I really want one of those exciting new hockey games. A buck...and 10 wrappers??? The wrappers might be a little pricey these days. Ha.
But back to the card.
When taking a closer look, it does show some surface stain and I think it's got a slight crease in the middle. Drat.
I think keeping it in a PSA 2 holder will really do no good. I'm seriously contemplating popping it out of its holder. Maybe try to get most of my money back in a trade down the road.
After all, the card is over 50 years old.
Why I bought it??? I haven't the slightest idea.
Oh well....it's not the worst impulse buy I've ever had.
