This is another of those things that I have no idea how it turned up in my collection. My best guess, which I mentioned for some other odd thing in my collection the other day, revolves around Toys 'R Us. I remembered, when they were going out of business, that back in the 80s I would sometimes buy a repack at Toys 'R Us. Maybe at other places too? But it's definitely something Toys 'R Us carried and that I bought there. Probably not too many times, but sometimes. And there would be random stuff in those packs. Maybe that's why I have this nice set. When I put it into my collection on Trading Card Database, I was pleasantly surprised to learn that the 9 cards I have comprise the whole set.
Outfielder Bob Hazle only played in 41 games for the 1957 Braves, but batted .403 in his 134 at-bats, with 27 RBI. According to Wikipedia, Hazle was put in after one of my favorites, Bill Bruton, had a season-ending injury. Hurricane Hazle, they called him, referencing Hurricane Hazel which hit in 1954.
I'll just close out by mentioning that of these great players, Hank Aaron is the only one still alive. He's almost 85 years old at this point; may he be well for many more.
Thanks for reading!
