Another One From Flipping & Trading: Ryne Duren

Chris Olds of Beckett Blog fame wrote about Ryne's 1958 card for the Topps Million Card Giveaway and today I'm giving you his '63 card. This is another one from my project to collect all the cards from this book.

Half of Page 44 is now complete. Roger Craig, you are in my sights.


Turns out my boy Ryne is from Cazenovia, WI which is about two hours south of my hometown of Eau Claire, WI.

1963 Topps #17 Ryne Duren

This card is all about the sunglasses. The paragraph included in Flipping and Trading claims that Ryne had horrible eyesight which made catching his fastballs all the more difficult.
