1953 Topps

Scheib spent 11 years pitching in the major leagues, winning 45 games and saving 18 mainly for the Philadelphia Athletics. He came up as a 16-year old in 1943 and appeared in six games for the A’s. Scheib saw action in 15 games the next year and four in 1945 before spending 1946 in the minor leagues. He started 24 games for Philadelphia in 1948, finishing with a 14-8 record and a 3.94 ERA. It was the high-water mark of his career. He saved 11 games for the A’s in 1951, despite losing 12, and was an 11-game winner the next year. His ERA ballooned in 1954 and he was traded to the St. Louis Cardinals where things did not get any better. He returned to the minor leagues in 1955 and stayed there for three seasons before retiring in 1957.

Writer, historian, father, intrepid traveller, journalist, punk rocker ... I am actually in the (a) Hall of Fame. They said to never trust anyone over 30 and now I am so far past that point, spinning aimlessly and still trying to figure out my place in the world.
