Card Subject: Robin Roberts

Player information: I got this one at the same time as the Sutter autograph. I am so happy to finally get one. This one was gotten for $5 shipped. Usually it’s much more for his autograph so I was happy to find it cheaper. Roberts was a 19 year vet, and spent the most of his career in Philadelphia. He had a career record of 286-245 which puts him at 28th for career wins. He was a seven time All Star and was a big part in that Phillies rotation for years. The interesting thing about his career was that it very closely mimics Jim Kaat’s and unpon close look, Kaat needs to be in the Hall. Maybe someday the veteran’s committee will right that wrong.
