1959 Topps #382
Comments: My dad bought me many of the cards he remembered having as a kid - specifically those from the 1959 Topps set. Richie Ashburn from that set was my first '59 Phillie and remains my favorite card of his. This Curt Simmons was bought at the same time and provides a lot of good memories.
1956 Topps #290
Comments: I've always had an affinity for horizontal cards. The mix of action and headshot along with the classic "painted" effect make this a must have card.
1952 Topps #203
Comments: As with the '56 Topps card, the artistic nature of this card make it stand out. Granted, the entire set is awesome - but something about the way the "P" on Curt's hat, and his uniform (which does not necessarily match the actual one worn at the time) always gets me looking at this one. Also like the nickname - "Fightin' Phillies" on the card front.
1955 Red Man #24
Comments: Growing up I always thought of this as an "expensive" card. Luckily the internet has knocked down a lot of the walls that limited the span of my search for reasonable vintage card prices. Once of the more recent additions to my collection, it's also one of my favorites.
