Old School Heritage and New School Ponies - Part 3

YOU CANNOT RESIST THE PONY



YOU PROBABLY CANNOT RESIST THE VINTAGE


Who da heck is Bob Allison? I'm glad I asked!

He was a star for the Senators/Twins!
He was the Rookie of the Year in 1959!
He hit 30 or more homers three times!
He hit 29 homers a couple of other seasons!
His batting average wasn't all that great but he could draw walks and had a good OBP!
He was an All-Star 3 times!
He was a dang good player and shouldn't be relegated to the common box!

That would make a good game... Everyone gets 10 bucks and they have to build the best team with that cash from vintage bargain boxes. Winner takes all. Vintage card rotisserie... I should patent that.

I think he led the AL in runs in the year of the card you pictured as well!

Bob lost to both Hank Aaron and Willie Mays on "Home Run Derby" (no shame there) but did win against Bob Cerv.

My first real baseball glove (still have it) waa a Bob Allison model. One of my favorites growning up in GA without a local team.

That was a bunch of exclamatory sentences! I think you've filled your quota for the day!
