1964 Topps #495 Bill Virdon, Pittsburgh Pirates

It's been a long time since I've posted a new 64T card.   I found this overpriced card for 53% BV.  That's $4.99 + $0.35 tax = $5.34 out of $10.00 BV.  I should have been able to find this card for about $1-$2, but that's the boom market that we're in right now.  The importance of this acquisition is that it bring my 64T set up to 580 out of 587 cards.  The missing cards (471, 477, 481, 482, 512, 514, 541) are mostly commons with an $80 P.Niekro RC thrown in there.  It's like the late -80s all over again where sellers start at BV and go up from there.  This 53% BV Virdon is probably supposed to be a deal, but I know better than that.  When we start getting back to cards starting at BV in lower grades and going up from there, we're in danger.  Of course, Beckett hasn't changed their 20th-century pricing since Y2K, but this recent boom is something else--or is it?
