1957-58 Topps #22 – Pierre Pilote

I received this eBay purchase in the mail today. Finally, I’ve added a “big card” to my 1957-58 Topps set build.

This is Hall of Fame defenseman Pierre Pilote’s rookie card.

As you can see, the centering is way off.

However, there is no creasing and the corners are good.

Plus, I did not pay much for it. The Beckett high price for a Pilote RC is around $100. I got this for $23 shipped. It feels good to get another card for this set–but it feels really good to get one of the big boys out of the way.

Set completion as of 11-3-2010: 
11 out of 66 cards = 16.6%

  1. Very nice! I always find the centering on vintage cards (or lack thereof) is part of the charm.

    I have to upgrade my copy of that and have been avoiding it.

  2. NICE pickup! Centering on vintage cards is never a problem for me, so getting this card for $23 is highway robbery.
