TTM Success - Howie Judson

I have been adding more and more vintage cards to the autograph album; so much so, I have had to buy a few more 8-pocket pages in order to fit the cards.  This one is another 1955 Bowman, this time signed by Howie Judson.

Judson (b. 1926) played in the majors from 1948 to 1954 for the White Sox and Reds/Redlegs.  Yes he played for the Reds in 1954 where they were referred to Redlegs due to the McCarthyism of the time.  Pretty interesting subtle piece of history.  The back of the Bowman card confirms this.
He had a career record of 17-37 with 204 strike outs and an ERA of 4.29.

I mailed to Judson on February 13 and got the card back on February 25, for a 12-day TAT.
