How acquired: $0.99 on ebay
Condition: Poor
I'm a huge fan of these 52's taken at what I presume to be Spring Training.  I'm not sure if that's California or Arizona, but I feel safe in asserting that it isn't St. Louis.  I'm also a fan of this particular Browns cap that Marsh is wearing in the card.  I wouldn't go so far as to call myself a hat collector, but I have more hats than I need, and will probably try to track one of these down.  With a 7 1/2 size head, most adjustable hats look goofy and the fitted are the only way I can go.  As a result, instead of a closet full of hats from golf courses and department stores, I have what resembles a New Era hat collection.  Okay, so maybe I dabble in hat collecting.

Stats: 7 seasons, 296 hits, 10 home runs, 96 RBI's, .239 avg.

Best Hall of Fame Showing: N/A


  1. I finally found and bought a Browns hat last year and I love it. It's brown and orange but you're right, those white and brown ones are just great. My issue is that I wear a size 8! Try and find cool caps in that size.

    BTW....the Brownies trained in Burbank, California from the late 40's thru the early 50's.

    1. As a guy that worked in headwear for more than a decade, I understand the struggle you have, wearing a size 8.

  2. Beautiful card - both the image and the "well loved" condition!
