1960 Topps Wes Covington 158 - Braves Card of the Day ⚾

For most baseball players of time gone by, what I first knew of them is what can be found on their baseball cards. I’ve written at length about Covington before, but I believe this is my favorite Covington baseball card. This is the definition of a cocky smile. Why shouldn’t he be cocky? He was an integral member of the world championship Braves of 1957 and the pennant winning team of 1958.

He’s another guy who absolutely belongs in the team Hall of Fame.
