1984-85 O-Pee-Chee #96 Neal Broten PSA 9
Since I'm trying to keep this collection affordable, I have to be careful to not go overboard buying PSA graded cards on eBay. However, if I was going to spend a few extra dollars on a nice graded card, this was the one. I badly needed a replacement for my original 1984-85 Topps Neal Broten card. It was the first Broten card I owned as a kid, and it has the creases and the pin-hole through the top to show for it.
A nice PSA graded rookie card of Broten remains a tad out of my price range, but I did find this one, which holds even more sentimental value for me.
