One Card Post - Solly Drake
How Much?: $1.02
Why?: For a hair over a dollar, I couldn't resist this 1957 Topps Solly Drake in pretty outstanding condition. Don't know a thing about the man, but it appears he played in just 141 total MLB games over the course of two seasons ('56 and '59). I sure do like the '57 Topps set though, and knew I didn't have this particular card.
Other: It looks like Solly has just one other card officially released during his career, which comes courtesy of 1959 Topps. Guess I'll have to track that one down to call my Drake collection complete.
