OK – let’s see whether I can get more than one clue in before somebody nails this one. Today’s prize offering comes from the 1966-67 Topps set, renowned for the wood-grained TV set style that chipped and wore just as badly as real wooden TVs did. The set, of course, is also known for its rookie defensemen and was there any that was rated higher than Bob Wall? Well, there was one, I suppose, but Bob Wall here is still in nice shape and is much more readily-attainable.
I have another player in mind. There were three or four I was debating between, but this was the one I thought of first and the one I’m sticking with.
Clue #1: I got a new lease on life thanks to an expansion draft.
(Please, please let this be vague enough to get me at least to clue #2…. 🙂 )
