Recent Pick Up: Fred Clarke T206

I recently picked up a new T206 Fred Clarke with bat card in an SGC 20 slab.

I sold off a bunch of Mike Trout rookies not long ago and turned them into a nice HOF T206 card with funds to spare.  I'm very happy with this new card in my collection.  I'm looking to add another one soon as well.

From the Baseball Hall of Fame website:

    Fred Clifford Clarke
    Born: October 3, 1872, Winterset, Iowa
    Died: August 14, 1960, Winfield, Kansas
    Bats: Left
    Throws: Right
    Played For:  Louisville Colonels (1894-1899), Pittsburgh Pirates (1900-1911, 1913-1915)
    Elected to the Hall of Fame by Veterans Committee: 1945
    With 2,678 career hits and 1,602 managerial wins, Fred Clarke excelled both on the field and in the dugout. In his first big league game, he went 5-for-5 on his way to fashioning a career .312 batting average and topping the .300 mark in 11 seasons. In 1903, he led the league in doubles and slugging average while piloting the Pirates to an appearance in the first modern World Series. A full-time player-manager in 16 of his 19 seasons at the helm, Clarke led his clubs to 14 first-place division finishes.

    Enjoy the hobby's a great one.
