1958 Topps
Don Zimmer

Most remember Zimmer for his scuffle with Pedro Martinez in the 2003 American League Championship Series.

But what some may not recall is that Zimmer played 12 years in the majors. He also managed for 12 seasons.

He was an All Star as a player (1961) and a N.L. Manager of the Year in 1989.

But what I remember is Zimmer being a character, a larger-than-life individual who is an asset to the game.

And when I saw this card a few years back, I had to have it. The fact that it is autographed doesn't hurt.
