|1964 Topps Giants #26 Joe Torre|
If you've never seen the back of the 1964 Giants set they look a newspaper cover story. Joe's cover page proclaims "Torre Top Hitting Backstop."
Upon reading the article I find my hometown of Eau Claire, WI is mentioned directly. In the 50's and 60's Eau Claire was home to the Eau Claire Braves which served as a farm team for the Milwaukee Braves. Joe spent on season with the Bears in 1960 before moving up to AAA and the big leagues.
