One of the hazards of buying lots on ebay is that your going to get cards like this. Now this card has 4 great corners, just terribly miscentered.
#177 John Melvin "Bubba" Phillips
I'm always leary of guys named Bubba. Don't know why just one of those things. Bubba played some minor league ball, did some military time, and was finally called up to the Tigers in 1955. He was traded to the White Sox the next year and then moved to the Indians for the 1960 season. In 1963 he was back in Detroit and would finish his career here in 1964. Bubba didn't really have all that stellar of a career, but did hit two grand slams in 1961 and back to back homers in 1962. Bubba pasted away in Hattiesburg, Mississippi in 1993 at the age of 65.
#181 Sammy Esposito
I couldn't find too much info on Sammy on my 30 second search of the internet. You can see from the back of his card he didn't get a whole lot of playing time. In his 10 years in the majors he played just 560 games, had 8 career home runs and 78 RBI's. Sammy played most of his career with the White Sox, but was trade in the 63 season to Kansas City Athletic's. 1963 was Sammy's last year. After baseball he was the North Carolina State University head baseball coach for 20 years. And as far as I can tell he's till around at 80.
#187 Willie Kirkland
Seems like this is a post of 3 so so players. I guess they all can't be Mickey Mantle. I couldn't find much on Willie either, but Willie played for the Giants, Indians, Orioles and finshed his career with the Senator's. In his 9 year career Willie amassed 148 home runs and 509 RBI's. After Major League baseball Willie played in Hawaii in 1967 and then went over to Japan and played for the Hanshin Tigers for 6 seasons. And Willie is still around somewhere at the age of 77.
