Braves Card of the Day: 1957 Topps Lew Burdette #208

So, here’s the conspiracy theory behind Topps getting Lew Burdette’s name wrong for years. They did it intentionally to get Lew back for the joke he played on this card. Burdette was a righty, but he borrowed Warren Spahn’s glove and posed as a lefty for Topps.

Would Topps purposely get his name wrong for years after this incident??? #LewNotLou
