Vintage Fridays: Jack Fisher, 1962 Topps #203
Whoever owned this card before me really wants you to know that "Fat Jack" Fisher was traded to the Giants in December of 1962. He was sent west with Jimmie Coker and Billy Hoeft in exchange for Mike McCormick, Stu Miller, and John Orsino. I almost wish that the card doctor had gone a step further and scrawled an interlocking "SF" on top the bird on Jack's cap. Maybe he or she could've scribbled "GIANTS" over the orange Orioles insignia on his jersey. There's no point in doing anything halfway.
I'm taking a powder for the weekend, but I'll be back on Monday. I always am.
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.
