Always old…

A while back I was picking up a few cards to finish some sets. One of the cards I had to track down was this dude.

Zimmer is a true baseball man. He has been an active part of the game for almost 60 years, during that time picking up 6 WS rings.

Unfortunately he is maybe best known for getting head-tossed by Pedro during a drawl a few years back.

The card is petty sweet, showing a 26 year old Zimmer ready to field a grounder. But look at his face, he looked old even back then.

  1. 57 isn’t one of my favorite sets, but every once in a while a really nice card shows up in that set. The Zimmer card is a really nice looking card!
