The Manliest Card of All Time?

You need a card in your collection that reminds you of how feeble you are are a human.

That's why 1957 Topps Cincinnati Redlegs card number 165 for Theodore "Ted" Kluszewski exists. No matter what, you do not compare to him.


I do actually firmly because each of us needs this card in their collection. No collection can be considered complete without it.

Thanks for stopping by.

  2. Did the Reds really play a season with sleeveless jerseys? If so... wow.

    1. There's supposed to be a shirt with sleeves underneath it, Ted was just handing out tickets to the gun show.

  3. Every time I see this card on a blog I always think that I'll remember to look for one of my own, than I forget to do so... maybe this'll be the time that I actually do?

  4. I just can't bring myself to own a Teddy Guns. It may be the high-waisted pants.
