Default 1954 Bowman Card 222 Memo Luna

Screen shot 2018-05-20 at 1.29.45 PM.jpg

I was always interested in who Memo Luna was on card 222 of the '54 Bowman set, and over the years I kept an ever growing file on this one-game wonder who managed to get his own baseball card. Last week I finally wrote the story of Memo Luna, the first Mexican-born southpaw in the majors

Great article - thanks for the insight.

That card always stuck out from the rest of the set, almost like a Sid Finch card stuck into a Topps set.

Now, we know the rest of the story...
Working Sets:
  • 1964 Topps Giants auto'd 49/60
  • T206 SLers, Virginia League 6/12
  • TBD??

Completed Sets:
Baseball - 1954 Redheart, 1956, '60, '61, '66, '67, '70 - '89 Topps
Football - 1970, '75, '76, '77, '78, '79 Topps
Basketball - 1971/'72 Topps, 1986/'87 Fleer
