1957 Topps #165 - Ted Kluszewski

This iconic card shows the tremendous guns of Klu and the custom jersey he "needed" since his arms were just so, so muscular. While undoubtedly a powerhouse, I find it hard to believe they couldn't make him a proper jersey. I think they just didn't want to. Great card, though. 1957 established the still-used standard for card sizes and had nice, full, colorful pictures. I believe I would have to classify my copy as "near mint, frayed corners, slightly faded".


  1. The corners are symmetric...that's got to count for something, right?

  2. Totally. Circular symmetry is definitely a thing.
