Even after allegations that the Giants were stealing signs, Branca said "...even if Bobby knew what was coming, he had to hit it ... Knowing the pitch doesn't always help." For those unfamiliar, we call people who say things like that "pure class".
I picked this up last Feburary and have yet to show it off. Today seems like the right time. I am sure the smudge on the "c" in Branca turned a lot of people off from buying it, so I was able to get it for about $6.50 with shipping. But $4 of that was shipping. Ebay gougers. Hard, though, to pass on a nice one card autograph as this. I just need a Thomson to complete the grouping.
