Everybody's Got A Record: Frank Howard Edition

**In this series we strive to prove the universal truth that every baseball player holds some kind of record.**

Frank Howard was an  incredibly imposing batter standing six feet seven inches tall and he used his size to lead the American League in home runs twice and hit 382 in his career. In fact, his 48 home runs in 1969 and his 237 total home runs while playing for the Senators are the most single season and team total home runs for any variation of the Senators that have played in Washington.

And although Frank is wearing a Senator's jersey on the front of the card,the reverse side tells me the jersey relic piece is from Howard's days with the Dodgers from 1958-1964.
