Happy 90th Birthday Joe Garagiola; 1951 Bowman #122

Just found out from the @Baseball_More Twitter feed that today is Joe Garagiola 90th Birthday. This gives us the rare opportunity to post a 1951 Bowman Card of a living MLB player on a marquee birthday.

1951 Bowman #122 Joe Garagiola
I like Baseball and More remember Garagiola as the Voice from Game of the Week back when I was a kid.  A few years back I picked up this beauty at a card show for a dollar - how sweet is that!
To busy to list off a mini bio of Garagiola. Two quick things - he won the World Series with the 1946 Cardinals and He was once traded with Hall of Famer Ralph Kiner.

I guess I remember him as much for his time on "The Today Show" as anything. And the fact that he lived across the street fro Yogi Berra in St. Louis. How cool is that? Great card!
