More fun for cheap, AKA my collecting wheelhouse, AKA dime boxes!
Today we have 2 TCMA issues from the 70's.
On the left, one of the All Time Greats (in the 'my favorite goofy looking players' collection), The Sphinx, Don Mossi!! And on the right, one of those 'one name wonders', Rocky! Usually when you can get away with only one name its because you are famous. So I figured this was Rock Colavito or someone I'd heard of. Nope, its Rocky Nelson, AKA Glen Richard Nelson. He had a 12 year career mostly in the 50's. He never played more than 98 major league games in a season, had 31 career HR and a .249 batting average. On the plus side, he won a World Series with the Pirates in 1960 and was a major success as a minor league player. For example, in 1958, he had a line of 43 HR, 120 RBI, .326 BA for the Toronto Maple Leafs. Plus, you know his mother loved him.
