1955 Bowman #155 - Gerry Staley
GERRY STALEY STARES INTO YOUR SOUL. This card has always jumped off the page. A strange look on his face combined with the all-too-common ink offset in the '55 Bowman series leads to quite a piercing gaze from Staley. This is the set that killed Bowman for 34 years. I'm not sure the TV design looked modern even then. It's been growing on me though. It's hypnotizing. And I'm only 4 away from completing the Reds set. On Staley, he only pitched half a season for the Reds but snuck onto a card wearing a Reds jersey. In fact, this is the only baseball card of him as a Red. Good thing he made it count.
