#556 Nellie Fox The Sporting News All Star
Nellie Fox has got that chaw thing going, doesn't he? This is his third card in the '59 set following his regular issue and the combo card he shared with his DP partner, Luis Aparicio. And I find it the least appealing, probably because he should be wearing the interlocking S-O-X cap. He was born to wear that so very nice cap.
He was an eleven year All Star playing in 13 games. He went 14 for 38 for a .368 average. His hits were all singles. And this card is seriously mis-cut. There is the edge of a red NL All Star card showing up on the left side.
And so it goes. And yes, I'm tired tonight and I'm mailing this one in.
