1950 Bowman Pete Reiser 193 - Braves Card of the Day ⚾

According to his former manager with the Dodgers, Leo Durocher, the only player he saw with comparable talent to Pete Reiser was Willie Mays. Unfortunately, injuries shortened his career and his productive period. His productivity was basically gone by his second year with the Braves. Still, Reiser started his career with MVP quality seasons and who knows how many more he could have had, even missing three years fighting Nazis, if he had been able to avoid injuries.
