Progress: 1st of this card

Condition: Fair
Harry Brecheen, a screwball pitcher,  is another guy that I had never heard of that really had a very good career.  There's been a good number of them I've come across from this set.  This set is old enough that it predates even my father.  His cards span from about '58 to '68, and as a result I'm very well versed with the guys from that era, as I studied all the card backs and asked questions as a kid.  But with the guys from this era, I'm constantly discovering new ones.

Stats: 12 seasons, 2x All-Star, 133 wins, 2.92 ERA, '48 ERA Leader (2.24), 2 World Series Rings ('44, '46)

Best Hall of Fame Showing: 2.6% 1960
