December Braves 1959 - Part 3

The last 5 1959 Topps cards I got at the card show all feature the "normal" yellow background for a Braves card from that year.

347 - Bob Buhl
After 2 straight 18 win season Bob was injured in 1958 and only started 11 games.

366 - Humberto Robinson
Humberto pitched  19 games in relief in 1958 with a 3.00 ERA.

396 - Bob Rush
After coming over from the Cubs Bob went 10 and 6 for the Braves in 1958 with 2 shutouts.

425 -  Del Crandall
I technically have this card already but the other one has a 50th Anniversary stamp on it from the 2008 Topps Heritage set.

499 - Johnny O'Brien
Johnny came over in a trade after the 1958 season.  While playing for the Pirates in 1956 and 1957 he pitched some games before switching back to the infield.
