This mailday is one of the more random purchases that I’ve made. Larry Krutko played football at West Virginia University from 1955-57 and then with the Pittsburgh Steelers from 1958-60. He only has one NFL card and I’ve not found one yet at a price I’m willing to pay.
I did find something else and took a chance on it.
I came across this autograph and decided to chance it for the price.
It is an autographed playing card autographed by Krutko. The seller had good feedback and the price was one that if the autograph turned out to not be legit, I’d just say “oh well, I took a chance.” Someday, I will end up with his lone trading card. Someday.

One might say you’re taking a gamble or playing the odds with this one – ba dum tiss. It sure does make for a unique item.
