Buck Herzog T206 Pickup: New York VAR, Piedmont Back, Double Name, Slabbed a PSA 1.5 (MC)

I added another T206 to my slowly-growing collection with this Buck Herzog pickup. An eBay score, the most appealing thing to me was the sweet double-name at the top of the card. The card boasts good clarity and I genuinely can never have enough T206s in my collection. T206s > modern.


Herzog -- nicknamed "Choke 'Em Charley" -- played in four World Series and for four franchises (including a short stint as a player-manager). He grew cantaloupes; had a love-hate relationship with John McGraw; was assumed to be Jewish by many during his career; was once traded for three HOFers including Christy Mathewson; once fought Ty Cobb; and faced hard times later in life following a stint with the B&O Railroad and time spent working at a racetrack.
