This card shows a good amount of wear.  Not that wear bothers me all that much.  I just think it's kind of an ugly card.  There is a lot of variation within this set as far as how cards appear.  Some look like pure paintings, others look like photographs.  I prefer something in the middle.  The photographic looking ones are my least favorite, and this card very much falls into that category. 

Delsing's wikipedia page, is very brief, but full of interesting nuggets.  Delsing is the one who pinch ran for Eddie Gaedel, the 3'7'' pinch-hitter used by the Browns in 1951.  Delsing's son was a professional golfer, and his grandson was the MLS (major league soccer) MVP in 2005.
