Little do people know that Eddie Stanky was the sole stimulus for Leo Durocher’s legendary statement “nice guys finish last”. While Stanky was sub-par at the plate and in the field, he still managed to be on winning teams wherever he played, prompting Durocher’s classic line. His 1955 Topps card presented here in a PSA 8.5 holder should also be considered for legendary cardboard status since PSA has only graded 3 higher! A brilliant array of color hues are framed by blizzard like, well centered borders. Fine edging, pin point corners and perfect reverse side print registration are the final compliments to a superb mid-50’s classic. Follow in Stanky’s by “winning” this incredible masterpiece that will immediately augment any high grade 1955 set.
