Cool Vintage Card of the Week
Battey was a four time All-Star catcher and a key player on the Minnesota Twins 1965 World Series team. A great fielder, Battey won three Gold Glove Awards. Battey received the most votes by an American Leaguer for the 1965 All-Star Game.
On August 26, 1962 Battey caught Jack Kralick's no-hitter.
This is a 1960 Topps Earl Battey #328 baseball card which I own.
