Time to focus on another addition to my growing 1953 Topps set. Today's card features Hank Edwards of the St. Louis Browns:
Edwards' big claim to fame seems to be that he led the AL in triples back in 1946. On an average year he'd appear in maybe half of his team's games, sometimes as an outfielder sometimes as a pinch hitter, hit between .250 and .300 and maybe give you a handful of doubles and/or home runs. To me, the most interesting thing about this card is just how much Hank resembles the creature in the St. Louis Browns logo! Is it just me, or is there some real similarity between Edwards and Brownie the Elf there?
