Throwback Thursday: Sluggers Supreme 1958 Topps
It's hard trying to find a vintage Topps card of one of the greatest hitters of all time on it, but I managed to do it when I added this Ted Williams and Ted Kluszewski 1958 Topps Slugger Supreme to my collection. I grabbed this nice piece of cardboard for only $7 delivered.
It's not known if the Big Klu is truly a Pirate in this card, but since he played the 1958 season for the Bucs, I added it to my ongoing attempt to collect every flagship Topps Pirates card. Klu didn't play long in the Steel City as he was only in 160 games over a season and half. During that time he batted .284 with only 6 HomeRuns, but did maintain a very good strikeout to walk rate (30:31)
