Braves Collection: Joe Nolan

1980 Topps
Here we have another Braves ball player that I'm only familiar with because of his baseball cards.

What do I remember most about his baseball cards? Well, mostly I remember that he just doesn't look like a big time athlete to me. He must have been though. He looked to be a AAAA player from 1972 through 1975, but then he finally broke through to the big leagues for good, and would even hit .300 in 1980 and 1981. That's not bad. Not bad at all.

Of course, he didn't do it for the Braves.
