1953 Bowman Lou Burdette 51 - Braves Card of the Day ⚾

I have two thoughts when I look at this baseball card.

1 - Did the original owner of the card hate Burdette or did the pen scribble get on the card some other way? Perhaps someone left the card out and their small child found it and decided to draw on it. Should I replace it? Maybe. Will I? When there’s other baseball cards to spend money on? Of course not.

2 - At some point in time, I must have known that Burdette started his career with the Yankees, but like every bit of knowledge I thought I had accumulated over the years, it left my brain for a warmer climate. I can’t say that I blame it. My brain is a mess and nothing should be subjected to it for any length of time.
