Ever wonder why an elephant was chosen to represent the Philadelphia Athletics? Well, it is a strong and powerful animal, I suppose, and the offered card is strong and powerful in its own right. Bobby Shantz recorded 24 wins against just 7 losses in the 1952 campaign, and this representation definitely does him justice, with a meticulously focused image bursting forth from the olive green background, glittering under a pack-fresh application of original gloss. Only 4 higher-graded examples are on record, so upgrade your '53 set with this delightful pasteboard relic.
