#30 Phil Cavarretta: Cub favorite, but was fired as manager when asked about his team's chances for the 1954 season Cavarretta responded that they would finish in the second division. Got to admire his candor.

This is a great shot of Stan Musial. All of the marks are from the penny sleeve that I have the card in.

#33 Reese. I've always admired the "other-worldliness" of this image. Unfortunately, it's also the weakest card in my set condition-wise.

Phil, that's a nice Pee Wee. If you'd have turned it sideways, it would have fit on my screen.

Bob, especially nice Reese there.

Pee Wee's old house in Louisville. But not likely a glove he left behind

Has the player sliding under Reese ever been identified?

Not sure if the player was actually identified. Lots of stories about this card- it was a black and white image shot before the war and hand colored, the sliding player was Billy Herman, or it was Cookie Lavagetto, or someone else entirely. But never anything that seemed definitive.

Not the nicest example, but it's the only 1953 Bowman card I actually have...total classic, found this in an old shop and had to have it. Someday I'll tackle this set...and upgrade this card...

Another board member just pm'd me, the sliding player is Frenchy Bordagaray, and the only year he was a teammate of Pee Wee's was 1942.

Thanks for the info. Not a name I am familiar with, but looks like he played for11 years from 1934-1945.

I can add one finally.

Back in the 80s when I started collecting this was the first vintage card I ever purchased.
