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 #322 WILLIE TASBY BALTIMORE ORIOLES ALL-STAR ROOKIE TOPPS BASEBALL CARD. Willie Tasby Jr. (born January 8, 1933 in Shreveport, Louisiana) was a Major League Baseball player for six seasons, all in the American League. Tasby came up with the Baltimore Orioles and spent time with the Boston Red Sox, Washington Senators and Cleveland Indians. Willie was primarily an outfielder, appearing in just two games in the infield in his 583-game career. Tasby made his major league debut on September 18, 1958, and played in 18 games for the Orioles at the end of the season. Willie's performance in 1959 was solid as he played 142 games, batted .250 with 13 home runs, while patrolling center field for the Orioles. Baltimore's sixth place finish in the AL was not impressive, but Tasby's rookie performance was, as he was selected to the inaugural Topps All-Star Rookie Team along with future Hall of Famer Willie McCovey. 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.
