Nitty Gritty Old vs New

Today's installment of old vs new focuses on card #180 from 1960 Topps and 2009 Topps Heritage. The player's in question are current Pirates outfielder Ryan Church and former All Star Harry "Suitcase" Simpson. The connection between these two players isn't that solid. Although both players are left-handed hitting outfielders and both have played in many different cities. Simpson played for 5 different teams in his 8 year MLB career. Pittsburgh is Church's 4th team in 7 years. Perhaps that is the connection Topps was going for. I love this hobby! I love this game. LATER.
