That crease running across the front is severe enough that I had a difficult time getting this guy in a top loader.  The card is literally flimsy.  Not quite a spaghetti noodle, but much more so than it should be.

On May 13, 1954 Bobby Adams led off the top of the 1st inning with a solo home run off of Robin Roberts.  Roberts would go on to retire the next 27 batters in a row in route to an 8-1 Phillies win.
