I don't think that I'm the only person guilty of going out and purchasing extra cards for a legendary player after his passing. Last year, there was Jerry Coleman, Al Dark, Ralph Kiner, Jim Fregosi, Connie Marrero, Frank Torre, Don Zimmer, and Tony Gwynn--among many others. This year, it's Stu Miller, Bill Monbouquette, and Ernie Banks. I recently added the following two Banks cards since my last post.
*1964 Topps #55: Ernie Banks, Chicago Cubs, 1B.
*1965 Topps #510: Ernie Banks, Chicago Cubs, 1B.
This was my 200th post on the 20th-Century Topps Baseball blog.
