1955 Topps "Spook" Jacobs

I don't know a whole lot about good ol' "Spook" except that he went 4-for-4 in his Major League debut.

He also apparently got into quite a fight after being beaned by future Hall-of-Fame manager Tommy Lasorda while both played in the Pacific Coast League. After he got through with pitcher Lasorda, he went after second baseman Sparky Anderson.

Spooky? Happy Halloween!

What a story. Just imagine if he had seriously hurt Tommy and Sparky. The entire future of baseball would be different.

This is the only 1955 Topps card I have. It doesn't really fit any of the player categories I collect, but you can't go wrong with a guy named Spook.
