My father was going through his masive collection of Topps sets and realized he had a few doubles. He gave them to me. The highlight is this guy.
Kubek was a 4 time all star and 3 time world champ and 1957 AP ROY. All in pinstripes.
His real fame came from his days behind the mic. He was a call it like it is guy that left the booth and the game in the mid ’90s when he felt the game had lost it’s fun and had become all about greed. I guess somehtings never change.
It’s a cool looking card and is his RC. The blue of his eyes with the minimal colors looks really interesting. 1957 Topps is becoming one of my favorite sets.
It’s also a high number and carries a bit of a premium.
I may try and move it to get some more cash for my HOFer rookie collection.
