#643 - Johnny Grubb
What a card: Johnny Grubb had completed his second season as the Tigers' sometimes-outfielder, sometimes-DH when this card was issued.
My observation on the front: Another card with "snow" on the front.
More opinion from me: Grubb wore glasses that made him look rather nerdy on his baseball cards throughout his career. But he could hit.
Something you might know: Grubb finished sixth the NL Rookie of the Year voting in 1973 when he broke in with the Padres.
Something you might not know: Grubb coached high school ball at his alma mater in Richmond, Va., for a period after his career. One of his players was former Padres and Orioles reliever Cla Meredith.
My observation on the back: He collects baseball cards!
