1953 Topps Project - Bob Kennedy

Just a quick post tonight, creeping one card closer towards my lifelong collecting goal of completing the 1953 Topps baseball set...

I don't have too much to say about Bob Kennedy.  He began his MLB career at a very young age (playing as a regular at age 19).  Bob played for a few different franchises, most notably a member of the World Series champion Cleveland Indians team in 1948 (the last Indians team to win it!).  He'd move into managing with the Cubs and A's organizations in the '60s.

If you're a child of the '80s like myself, you might be more familiar with Bob's son Terry Kennedy, who was a four-time All Star at the MLB level and played on the '84 Padres and '89 Giants World Series teams.

Set Progress:  71 of 274 (26%)
