1976 Topps Maximino León 576 - Braves Card of the Day ⚾

I don’t remember ever seeing him pitch, but from baseball cards alone, Maximino Leòn is one of my favorites from the mid 70s Braves. I love his name as it just rolls off the tongue. He spent most of his time in the bullpen, and like most career relievers, his numbers were up and down, but overall, he was a solid performer for the Braves.

He would also spend years and years and years in the Mexican League and was elected to the Mexican League Hall of Fame in 1997. Damned cool.
