Vintage Fridays: Frank Robinson, 1970 Topps #463
As an update to yesterday's post, Frank Robinson was released from the hospital yesterday and returned to the meetings he had been attending with MLB owners and general managers. Even though the Paradise Valley, AZ doctors gave him the all-clear and said that he was "not dehydrated, but a little dry", he wisely said that he would follow up with his doctors at home in Los Angeles. He suggested that heart health wasn't something to take lightly, but also seemed to be attempting to head off any potential nagging: "I know my doctor will be calling me tonight telling me to get in there tomorrow. And I know my family will be after me to go.”
It just bears repeating: Frank Robinson is the baddest badass that ever badassed. Eddie Murray would agree.
I can remember playing with baseball cards as a toddler, but I actually started collecting them when I was ten. Now I'm an adult looking for an outlet to talk about my hobby without receiving blank stares in return. You can contact me thusly.
