FRIENDly new jersey card

On this day 50 years ago, Bob Friend gave up a triple to Pete Rose. It was Rose's first career hit of which he would go on to hit 4,256 total.
2002 Topps Super Teams Bob Friend Authentic Game Worn Jersey Relic

Bob Friend was a member of the 1960 World Series Championship Pittsburgh Pirates which this card commemorates as part of the Super Teams.  The card cost me just over $5 shipped.  It's my first relic of Mr. Friend.


  1. That is an awesome card! Loved this set too. It always flies under the radar, but has some really strong cards.

  2. I agree. Where else do you find relics of guys like Dave Mcnally and Ed Kranepool etc.? And the design simple but nice.
