Another card that has popped up a few times the past couple days. I love that there were major league baseball players that you could have easily confused for an Econ professor.
Speaking of professors, Jim Brosnan's old book, "The Long Season", is back in print. It's a book about the 1959 season, when he started with the Cards and wound up with Cincinnati. Among the more surprising things is that Bing Devine doesn't come off as a particularly good guy in the book.
Brosnan wrote a second book, "The Pennant Race", about the 1961 season, and then was pretty much blackballed from baseball, which didn't like him writing at all. Sort of an early-day Bouton.
