30 Day Baseball Card Challenge - Day 18
Day 18 - A card of a player who became manager of your favorite team.
I ended up picking not really a card, but a fun oddball. As a Brewers fan I had a few managers to choose from, but in the end it really wasn't a contest. I picked the guy that let the Crew to their only World Series appearance. Harvey Kuenn. Not only that Harvey had a pretty successful baseball career. Harvey was a ten time All-Star, Rookie of the Year in 1953 and won the AL batting crown in 1959. While his 15 year career stats didn't earn him a trip to Cooperstown, his numbers still were pretty decent. I won't retell the story of his coming to helm the Brewers. But Harvey has some great oddballs from his playing days. One of my favorites is this 1962 Topps Baseball Bucks.
