Stanton is gold class 3, 1/1. probably better than the auto in my gold label box (Varsho /75).

should I grade it? it looks good bu the gold label cards seem so fragile, I'm afriad the gold on edges and corners would chip in the mail, or even trying to put it in a card saver.

Many people say not to grade 1/1 cards. My opinion is to encapsulate it just to keep it in the best condition possible.

I dont actively collect packs, but had an awesome day at the STL card show today!

This is a very special Baseball Digest, as this particular cartoon is drawn by none other than Don Husch, who is my beloved Grandfather! He was a newspaperman, and freelance cartoonist in the 40s, before working his way up to a great career with the Chicago Tribune, retiring as a news editor in 1989. He passed in 2012, one week after our daughter was born. He and my Grandmother gave me an awesome life in LaGrange, outside of Chicago, and I thank God every day for the two of them.

I have printed copies of some of his cartoons, but it was a real thrill to find the actual magazine, from September of 1947! And I only gave $5, which made it only $4.85 more than the original cover price of 15 cents!!

Thanks for sharing in this special find with me!

God bless,

Kevin
