#210 Dick Fowler

#210 Dick Fowler
Progress: 1st of this card
50 of 407   12.3% Complete
How acquired: $4.01 on ebay
Condition: Very Good
The worse thing I can find to nit-pick about this card is the staining.  I can't tell if it's gum, wax, something else or some combination of them.  Wax/gum staining doesn't bother me at all, I almost feel like it makes the card more authentic, the way game-used bat collectors like ball marks.  The corners are a little soft, and it's off-centered a little, but all in all it's in very nice shape.  The solid yellow background is one of the uglier ones Topps went with in this set.

Stats: 10 seasons, 66 wins, led AL with 16 losses in '46
