Fear Strikes Out's Roomate

I have a handful of the original 1959 Topps cards but this one is in the best condition by far. The orange is so nice and bright it feels like it was pulled from the wax pack today.

Ted played 10 season, most of them with the Boston Red Sox. He played about 75 games a season mostly as a platoon infielder.

But he is best known as Jimmy Piersall's roommate in Fear Strikes Out.
