Grade This Card: 1954 Topps Whitey Ford

I'm not a professional grader, just a longtime collector. I have a pretty good idea what constitutes gem mint, and what's considered poor. It's just everything in between that throws me. I've scanned one of my cards here. Help me out by giving it a grade in the embedded poll.

1954 Topps Whitey Ford #37
I paid $40 for a lot that contained this card and the 1956 Topps Whitey Ford. I thought it was a deal, especially considering the book value of the 1956 card alone is over that. This is an attractive card, with the added detail of the black-and-white action shot that was probably the photo study for the artwork on Ford's 1953 Topps card.
