How acquired: $5.00 on eBay
Condition: Very Good
This card is in very nice shape.  There's a crease in the upper right corner, but the coloring and gloss are still in great shape and the card has a sturdy feel to it.  Roy had a decent career, but his son, Roy Smalley III, had an even better one making an all-star team and winning a world series with the Twins. Smalley started his career as an everyday starter for the Cubs, but lost his spot to Ernie Banks.
