#9 Bobby Hogue
Progress: 1st of this card
100 of 407  24.6% complete
How acquired: $3.00 on ebay
Condition: Good
This card just has the look of one that should be very expensive.  The combination of a Yankee, an unusual orange-ish background, and the '52 pedigree all just scream expensive to me.  And Bobby has the look of a star.  But he wasn't.  He was a journey-man middle reliever (did they call them that back then), playing for 3 teams over 5 seasons.  Regardless, this is one of my favorite '52s I've come across so far.

Stats: 5 seasons, 18 wins, 326.2 innings, 2 World Series Innings

Best Hall of Fame Showing: N/A
