1971 Topps Rookie Stars 52 - Braves Card of the Day

After Earl Williams pinch hit late in a 4-0 loss to the Mets on May 23, 1971, he would catch for the first time in his entire career. A few months later, after a full season of catching, he would be the third player for the Braves to win the Rookie of the Year award. ⚾
