#23 Billy Goodman

#23 Billy Goodman
Progress: 1st of this card
93 of 407   22.8% complete
How acquired: $3.25 on ebay
Condition: Fair
A common flaw I'm finding with these '52 Topps cards is that the picture isn't centered on the card.  This Goodman is an example of that, albeit, far from the worst one I've seen.  This card also has more than it's share of creases, but overall is in fine condition.  For a low series card of a player of Goodman's caliber, this goes into my "win" column as far as acquisitions.

Stats: 16 seasons, 2x All-Star, 1,691 hits, 1950 AL Batting Champ (.354)

Best Hall of Fame Showing: N/A

*Inducted into the trailer park version of Monument Park in 2004.
