1956 Topps George Crowe 254 - Braves Card of the Day ⚾

If you have a chance, read the SABR article on the life and career of former Braves first baseman George Crowe. Crowe was an excellent hitter who spent much of his career playing behind men like Earl Torgeson, Joe Adcock and Ted Kluszewski. He wouldn’t debut as a Major League player until he was 31 years old, but would play into his 40s.

He was Indiana’s first Mr. Basketball.
