TTM Success: Rocky Bridges

I was flipping through a few old cards I had, and I came across this 1961 Rocky Bridges. The name piqued my interest, so I read up on him and liked what I heard. His name is one you'd hear in a baseball movie, such as The Natural. 

He seemed to be a very popular player, despite not putting up gaudy stats. In fact, here is a quote from his wiki page (so it must be true!): "Rocky Bridges looked like a ballplayer. In fact, he may have looked more like a ballplayer than any other ballplayer who ever lived." How great is that?

I found some posts that showed that Bridges is a great TTM signer, so I shot this card to him, and got it back in a week. Very cool!


  1. Another nice haul! Great lookin' ink, too!

    I need to send Rocky something soon. I've got a few that qualify.

    Stubby (regular reader of mine) is actually a HUGE Rocky Bridges fan.

  2. I wish I had that card when I did that tobacco post.
