All five of my "R" favorites are members of the Hall of Fame. Collectively their careers cover the entire time between 1941 and 1993.
1962 design. Is that a smile? He looks a little pained. Nonetheless it's Brooksie, it has the cartoon bird and it just looks right.
1959 design. I love these, and most of the other vintage All-Star cards. I think of Frank Robinson as an Oriole but he had a great career with the Reds, 324 HR's, 1009 RBI and a .303 average.
