                  Joe Cunningham --- 1966
                                                                                            April 24-26, 2015   

A .300-plus hitter for St. Louis in the late
1950’s and a .280-hitter for the Cards and
White Sox in the early 1960’s, by the time
Cunningham got to the Senators in 1996 he
was pretty much worn out. This explains
why the lefty swinger looks like a tired old
man on his ’66 cardboard.

Cunningham would hit just .221 in 147
games for Washington from 1964 to 1966.
He would play in only three games for the
Senators in ’66 collecting one hit in eight at
bats. By the time this card came out, his
career was over as Topps noted on the
back that “Joe received his release from the
Senators April 25, 1966.”

It was a good career Joe…  now take it easy.

Editor's Note: Cunningham would hit .291
over 12 big league seasons, walking more
times (599) than he fanned (369), while
earning All-Star honors in 1959.
