It is not to often I post a yankee card. It is something I try to avoid. Sometimes that is hard though. The guy I player collect spent some time as the yankees manager so I end up with a few. This card however looks like a yankee card but isn't. It is actually a 1975 Syracuse Chief card. The Chiefs were a farm team for the yankees and Bill Virdon spent some time there before moving into the dugout in yankee Stadium.
This card has been on eBay for 3 months. It sat at $25 for a long time. I started watching when it was on it's first 30 day listing. Each time the 30 days expired I started watching it again. Finally last week I sent the guy a message that read something like:
This card has been listed for 3 months and no takers. You probably onticed that someone was watching it each time. Well that someone was me every time and if you would sell it for $X I will take it off your hands. I went pretty low figuring that the guy would come back with a different price but instead he said ok.
There is one more Virdon Syracuse Chiefs card that I have to find. The 74 version. It however has never been on eBay. I'm sure that most minor league manager cards don't sell well online so I doubt I ever see it. Hopefully someone in the New York area will see this post and run across one sometime and acquire it for me.
