Yo! (C) (tm) (R) Plus the namesake

There are many things to love about Yovanni Gallardo, affectionately known as Yo among us fans of the Crew. At some point in the not so distant past, I started referring to him as "Yo!" and proceeded to say he should copyright/trademark that. Hence the post title.

Well, I picked this Goudey Graph up off eBay a couple weeks back and I'm just getting around to posting it. I picked this up for $8 as a Buy It Now. At the same time my $1 offer for Bill Hall and JJ Hardy Goudey Graphs were both turned down. Considering the value of those two cards is probably about $0.10 each based on the number of collectors of this set in general and those players in particular, I can only scoff that my offers weren't accepted. Sure, it was probably only $1 in profit, but I can't imagine the people holding these cards really want to keep them. Pride got in the way of a buck. Never make that mistake!

Well, I'm excited to extend my 2009 Goudey Graph collection to three now: Gallardo, Marson, and Byrd.

Now, I made reference to the namesake in the title as well. I ask you football card collectors, what the heck do I have here? And let's not focus why it's in a screw-down because I HAVE NO CLUE!

Looks like a 1995 Topps Fan Favorite (FF8), but I'm not certain why I believed it was so valuable back in the day. Any insight would be appreciated.

  1. 1991 through 1995, every card other than base cards, and even the base cards of certain rookies and stars, were put in screw downs.

    it was a rule or something. if you didn't do that, you were drummed out of the beckett union.
