#186 Walt Masterson
Progress: 1st of this card
236 of 407   58% complete
How acquired: $2.26 on eBay
Condition: Very Good
Masterson looks like a very fastidiously dressed little leaguer on this card.  I played my little league ball in upstate New York, and the turtle neck was the go to undershirt for the first part of the season when games were often played in those oh so lovely early May snow flurries.

Masterson though was no little leaguer having already twice been an All-Star and with a dozen seasons under his belt when this card was issued.  And speaking of this card, it represents a hard to come by "win" on eBay for me.  It's been awhile since I've found a "need" in this price range, and any card at this price in this condition is extremely unusual.  It's nice to catch a break.

Stats: 14 seasons, 2x All-Star, 78 wins, 100 loses, 4.15 ERA

Best Hall of Fame Showing: N/A
