Progress: 1st of this card

How acquired: $1.51 on ebay
Condition: Fair
This card is far from being terrible, condition wise, but it also has more than it's share of issues.  The creasing is severe, and that slash on the front isn't ideal.  I also just find it to be sort of ugly, which fair or not, effects the way I "grade" these cards.  

Stats: 20 seasons, 1,420 hits, retired as the MLB All-Time Leader in Walks as a Pinch-Hitter with 91

  1. He played through three franchise moves. A's, Dodgers, and Senators-Twins. I wonder how many guys can claim that?
