Heartbreaking Damage: 1965 Topps Jim Roland

**In this series we highlight the cards that may have seen better days but the rough times these cards have seen have made them infinitely more interesting.**

1965 Topps #171 Jim Roland
Jim Roland was a middle reliever for the Twins from 1962 through 1967 before moving onto the A's.  Whenever I post one of these cards I try to figure out what exactly what has happened to it.  Could this be an example of a baseball card in bicycle spokes?  Any other guesses?

I'm guessing old Jim had a bad outing and someone was pissed. That or someone handed that to a little brother to play with and he rolled it up and stuck it in his mouth. I had cards in my spokes that never looked that bad.
