Card #43 - Mike Cubbage

The Card
This is a beautiful shot of Mike Cubbage lifting a ball to what I'm guessing is left-center field.  You've got a couple of Phillies in the background and perhaps Bob Boone's catcher's mitt...and that old-timey orange piping at Shea Stadium.

And glasses!  The modern player doesn't really wear glasses anymore.  Stupid medical advancements and lasers are eliminating glasses from the game.  Boo!

The Story
Another common's bin rescue.

The Price

The Condition
It's in great shape - hardly touched.

The Verdict
This is a deceptively cool looking shot - it reminds me of those old Sports Illustrated posters.
