Whitey Ford was an amazing pitcher who not only had commanding control of his pitches, the man helped a beligerent Mickey Mantle get back to his hotel room.
Ford was a trusted pitcher, a hall of famer who remained consistent throughout his long career. He was a pitcher from another time, another era. I was lucky enough to call WFAN and get through to call and ask Ford a question. Something about pitching then versus pitching now (which was 1989). He mentioned something about stamina, I believe. And how it helped everyone from his era.
I can only imagine how much value this card will gain over time. This 1954 Bowman has beautiful colors. Ford’s pose is on point. Classic.
