The Nitty Gritty Card of the Day
Welcome to the Nitty Gritty Card of the Day! Today's card is number 147 from the 1957 Topps set of Albert Bluford "Rube" Walker, catcher for the Brooklyn and LA Dodgers. Walker spent 8 years with the Dodgers and those 8 seasons came at the same time as Roy Campanella was winning MVP Awards and starting All Star games. This left Rube Walker without much playing time... He was still a part of some of the great Brooklyn teams of the 50's and found himself on this bad-ass card that I will probably post again. This is what Nitty Gritty is all about... I love this card, I love this hobby! 63 years LATER!
