Baseball card story from Fritz Peterson

Fritz Peterson pitched eleven seasons in the major leagues, nine of them with the Yankees. Winner of 133 games lifetime, his best season was 1970, when he was an American League All Star, going 20-11 with a 2.90 ERA. Author of the new book When The Yankees Were on the Fritz, he kindly answered my questions about baseball cards.

"My rookie card with Frank Fernandez on it is very ugly! I think they painted my cap on because I wasn't supposed to make the team that soon!"

Thanks! I don't have that card, but here is one from my collection.
