The Nitty Gritty Card of the Day!
Today's Nitty Gritty Card of the Day is card #140 of Julio Navarro from 1960 Topps. It is a Sport Magazine 1960 Rookie Star Card and shows Navarro as a member of the San Francisco Giants. Of course Navarro never pitched an inning for the Giants, but he did spend 6 years in the big leagues with 3 different teams. He also had an awesome nickname and is part of a MLB legacy. There is something great about a pitcher called Whiplash. I also love father and son legacies and Whiplash is the proud papa of Jaimie Navarro. The younger Navarro didn't have a cool nickname, but he did win 116 games in the Majors and topped 15 victories 3 times including a 17-11 mark for the Brew Crew in '92. Thanks for reading, I love this game, I love it's history and I love this hobby! 50 years LATER!
