1955 Bowman Eddie Mathews #103 - Braves Card of the Day ⚾

I love 1955 Bowman, even if the console television design is objectively ugly. (Please don’t @ me.) The most astonishing thing about this card to me is that picture of Mathews. He looks very young on most of his cards in the early to mid 50s, mostly because he WAS young, but that’s a baby face on this card. That’s not the face of one of the team’s two fearsome sluggers.

I have two of these baseball cards and I wish I knew where the second came from. I’m certain that the first came in a giant lot of Braves cards I purchased from Dayton (@BravesAmerica on Twitter). I have no idea why I bought the second. I don’t see it anywhere in my eBay purchase history or in my email indicating that I received it in a trade or purchased it from some other source.
