eBay vIntage pIckup

Here’s a little (literally) pickup off the bay from a few weeks ago. I got it fairly cheap from a good vintage seller.

1939 Play Ball #63: Emmett Mueller (RC) Emmett, or Heinie (yes I laughed too, but it was actually a common nickname for baseball players in the early 20th century) was an infielder for the Philadelphia Phillies from 1938-1941. While his numbers weren’t too impressive, he is part of baseball history for being the first player to hit a leadoff homerun in his first career at-bat.

For the card itself, it is now the oldest card in my collection and in pretty good shape (it could easily grade a 6). I’m not a big fan of the pre-Topps vintage, but if I come across cards like this for fairly cheap, I’ll snag them up. Especially if the player's name is Heinie.
