Card #52 - Larry Andersen
Here's a fun one! Larry Andersen, the longtime journeyman reliever, wearing the powder blue uniform of the Seattle Mariners. If you're like me you forgot he ever played on Seattle. Though he's most remembered as the player traded to the Red Sox for future Hall of Famer Jeff Bagwell, he was an outstanding bullpen arm and pitched into his 40's. Plus, he has a legendary sense of humor and still broadcasts games today.
(That's Yankee Stadium in the background, right?)
I rescued this one from the commons bin at my card shop.
The corners and edges are quite sharp, but as you can partially tell by the scan, the card has "yellowed" over time.
Powder blue and gold uniform and a mustache for days...what's not to love?!
