Card of the Day

Not a bad group.  Tebbets was the Manager of the Year in 1956 and as a player was a 4 time All-Star himself.  Ed Bailey was a 7 time All-Star and of course, Frank Robinson was a 14 time All-Star and is in the Hall of Fame.
1958 Topps #386

The card features the trio wearing a road uniform Cincinnati used for just one season, 1956.  It seems that when they switched from sleeved uniforms to sleeveless they couldn't bear to lose Mr. Redlegs so they moved him to the front.
