Baseball card story from Billy Brewer

Billy Brewer pitched for four major league teams, including the World Champion 1996 Yankees (but never the Brewers). Now the pitching coordinator for the Waco Storm, he responded to my request for baseball card stories with an all-too familiar tale...

"I do not collect cards but it is a very cool hobby. The best story is about my dad. As a kid growing up in the 50's and 60's he collected cards. Had a ton of cards with the likes of Ruth, Maris, Williams, etc... you get the drift. My grandma cleaned up a little to good and tossed them all. Needless to say they would have been worth some cash."


I have one Billy Brewer card in my collection, a 1993 O-Pee-Chee from his time with the Royals.
