#144 Bob Schultz
44 of 274
"His Walk About" - Bob Shultz went 9-13 and posted a 5.16 ERA over the course of 4 Major League Seasons. 20 of his 22 career decisions came during his two and half years as a Cub, but he also had brief stints with the Pirates and Tigers.
"That's Not a Knife" - Unfortunately, for Schultz, it was in fact a gun. Schultz was shot dead at the age of 55 after a late night disagreement with another patron in VFW Post 3595 in Nashville, Tennessee.
"More of a love bite really..." - Other than some rather ordinary corner wear this card is in pretty decent shape. It's a little off-centered (not a common issue with these 53's), but that's not really anyone's fault.
"Down Under" - Schultz is card #410 in the 1952 set. That's another high number that I don't have. Neither one of them is a very good looking card, but I'll give the '52 a slight edge. That cuts the '53 set's lead to 20-17-2.
