Obviously this card has some post-production art.  But at least it's interesting post-production art.  It's also severely off-centered, shows little evidence of ever having "corners," and is pretty well faded.  All in all, its one of my favorites.

Stats: 8 Seasons, All-Star, 56 wins, 3rd in 1947 AL ROY Voting (Jackie Robinson)

Best Hall of Fame Showing: N/A


  1. LOL @ "post-production art". Looks like maybe someone thought his 'Specs' nickname came from 'spectacles'.

  2. I never put that together, the "Spec" Shea and spectacles thing. Clever.
