Default Bike Spokes Treatment

With apologies to all of Red Sox Nation — this card is from my personal, childhood collection. Note the definite crease line — from bending and attaching it to a fender bracket — on the left side of the card. Yep, this one got the bicycle spokes treatment! I was eight years old in 1960 —how was I to know he was going to have a HOF career? I still love this card!

Really enjoy hearing stories about cards that were saved even though they are no longer in their best condition...as most of us are not in our best condition as well...myself included...lol...thanks for sharing

I searched high and low for one of these forever before I found one. Steve Dalkowski's life has always fascinated me, not only for the what could have been aspect but also because his life was incredibly sad and a tragic reminder of what sometimes happens when things don't work out for someone with all the natural talent in the world. I find him to be a kindred spirit in many ways when it comes to things in my own life. Anyway, I'll never sell this card and even if I wanted to, what would I get?

His is a tragic story...as an Oriole fan I always wondered what might have been...have been thinking recently about getting one of Dalkowski's "cards that never were"...saw a 1963 Topps style recently on Ebay
