Something took a bite off of the corner of this card.  It's in otherwise okay shape, albeit, a little bit boring to look at.  Even Astroth looks bored with this card.  Of the solid color backgrounds used in this set, the yellow ones are my least favorite.  They just don't work for me.  Astroth didn't do much at the plate but appears to have been a very good defensive catcher.  In 1953 he led the league in a number of defensive categories.
