Shakey's Pizza Josh Gibson

This is a card I've had my eye on for awhile on COMC.com. I'm really not sure why as it's not really a good looking card. I guess mostly because it's the oldest Josh Gibson card I've come across and it's as old as I am. For $1.99 that's not too bad. I saw that someone recently put up the same Josh Gibson 2005 Bowman Sterling relic refractor I won on eBay for 99 cents. They have it for $15 which means it was a good buy for me.

That is a cool card... It does bum me out though, being a fellow Josh Gibson collector, the lack of different or even decent photos of him. I mean the dude was the most prolific homerun hitter of his time playing in a country obsessed with baseball and no one had a freaking camera?

I'd settle for an action sketch or portrait card like Masterpieces. Even the A&G card is him sitting around. I also hate all those HR cards Topps made. 8 out of 10 pages for him on COMC.com are those cards.
