Good ole Battling Billy! he never seemed to stay in one place for too long, either as a player or a manager. he'd always start out fine, but then eventually he'd get pissed off at someone,and someone would get pissed off at him, and before long the whole team would be fighting each other and it would be time for Billy to move on and repeat the pattern somewhere else.i think he both played and managed with three different teams: Yankees, Tigers, and Twins. Did he also play for the KC A's as well as managing the same franchise in Oakland??? That would make it four.
'59 Topps that are in good condition are so pricey that most of the ones I own are a little nicked up. I just can't see paying several bucks for a common card.
This card looks the way Billy probably felt most mornings after a typically entertaining night...
