Read your comments this weekend on the blogs about the 60=70 run. right now they're running 1950's...posted a comment on your blog, but wanted to email you since you were so kinnd to alert everyone this weekend...cheers!
That my friend is a 1952 Topps Bruce Edwards card. That is also my FIRST and only 1952 Topps card. Just in case you were wondering, I will be redeeming this one, along with most of the other vintage cards I've unlocked. I can't wait to hold this beauty in my hands.
If you don't know who Bruce Edwards is, here is just a little info.
He played 10 years, 5+ with the Dodgers, 2+ with the Cubs, 1 with the Senators and 1 (7 games) with the Cincinnati Redlegs. He had a total of 429 hits, 39 homeruns and 241 rbis. His career average is 256. He was a catcher on the 1947 NL All-Star team. He was the starting catcher for the Dodgers in the 1947 World Series and was Roy Campanella's backup for the Dodgers in the 1949 World Series. Unfortunately, he didn't win a ring as the Yankees won both those Series.
I have to give a big thanks to Keith for the email. I don't know if Keith has a blog or that we've ever emailed before. I do know that I appreciate him taking the time to email me about the '50s cards. You really made my day. I don't believe in Karma, but if I did, I'd say I've been paid back for the thanks I got for letting people know about the '60s and '70s run last weekend.
