I am selling a baseball card from my childhood collection. I am not sure what grade this card would receive, so I will let the scans speak for themselves. You will receive the card in the scan, 1960 #288 BOB MABE BALTIMORE ORIOLES TOPPS BASEBALL CARD. Robert Lee Mabe (October 8, 1929 – January 9, 2005) was an American professional baseball player, a right-handed pitcher who appeared in all or parts of three Major League Baseball seasons with the St. Louis Cardinals, Cincinnati Reds, and the Baltimore Orioles. He batted right-handed, stood 5 feet 11 inches (1.80 m) tall and weighed 165 pounds (75 kg). Mabe was a 28-year-old veteran of minor league baseball when he made his MLB debut for the Cardinals in 1958. He had won 37 games for the 1955–1956 Houston Buffaloes of the Class AA Texas League. All told, he won 93 games during a ten-year minor league career. As a Major Leaguer, Mabe appeared in 51 games played, including 14 as a starting pitcher. He won seven, lost 11 (.389) with 82 strikeouts in 142 innings pitched. He died at age 75 in his hometown of Danville, Virginia. This card has been placed in a new Collector Safe polypropylene card sleeve (2 5/8" x 3 3/4") and then placed in a new Collector Protector (3" x 4"). Thank you for taking a look. In my opinion this card is still in nice shape, especially considering the age.
