#188 Clarence Podbielan

 #188 Clarence Podbielan
Progress: 1st of this card
144 of 407  35.4% complete
How Acquired: $5.50 on ebay
Condition: Excellent
I've been forced to pay more than I would like to for 52's of late.  That's a drag, and a strain on my hobby budget (can't wait for hi numbers).  However, the cards I've been buying have also been in much better shape.  I can't deny that's been kind of nice.  I still have no problem with poor cards, but I can't say I mind having a couple examples of nicer ones in my 8 pocket sleeves as well.  "Excellent" is probably a stretch for this card of "Bud" Podbielan, but compared to a lot of my 1952's, I might as well go ahead and label it near mint.

Stats: 9 seasons, 25 wins, 20 complete games, 4.49 ERA

Best Hall of Fame Showing: N/A
