1958 Topps
Warren Spahn


This card wouldn't be so bad if it weren't for the sizable scuff mark in the top left corner.
Spahn led the National League with 21 wins in 1957. He also had 111 strikeouts.

I remember seeing Spahn in Cooperstown, N.Y., just before he died. He had quite a crowd surrounding him.

The 1958 Topps issue is one of my favorites. I really enjoy its simple design, a classic. The bright green color is still vivid even 50 years later.
