The Nitty Gritty Card of the Day

Today's Nitty Gritty Card of the Day is card #130 from the 1965 Topps Baseball set featuring Detroit Tigers outfielder Al Kaline. Mr. Tiger spent all of his 22 seasons in baseball playing for the Tigers where he was an 18 time All Star, a 10 time Gold Glove Award winner and a World Champion. He retired after the 1974 season with 399 homers and 3007 hits for Detroit. He was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1980 and will forever be known as Mr. Tiger and was a pretty Nitty Gritty guy as well... I love this hobby. 45 years LATER.

  1. Can never go wrong with Al Kaline. A class act on a classic looking card. I love the blue backs.
