#69 Virgil Stallcup

#69 Virgil Stallcup
Progress: 1st of this card
193 0f 407  47.4% complete
How acquired: $5.50 on ebay
Condition: Good 
There are no major flaws on this card beyond a reasonable amount of wear, which one should expect when talking about a card that is now 64 years old.  Stallcup had a very nice run from '48-51, during which time he was the every day shortstop for the Reds and twice led NL shortstops in fielding percentage ('50 and '51).  Stallcup has one of the darker wiki pages that I've come across while doing this blog.  If you're interested, here's a link, but it's not going to  brighten your day.
