T205 Rube Marquard Tobacco Reprint Baseball Card with Gold
T205 Rube Marquard Tobacco Reprint
Rube Marquard began his baseball career in the sandlots of
Cleveland where he was found by Indianapolis. His amazing start in
the minors also included time in Canton. The New York Giants paid a
record $11,000 to get him to join their team. After an adjusting
period in the majors he became one of the most feared pitchers on
the mound. He was not only known for his fast ball but for his
ability to control the ball, as well as a fork ball change-up.
In 1912 he pitched 19 straight winning games, beginning with
opening day. After his long time spent with the Giants he arranged
his own move to Brooklyn. This gave him a chance to work with his
old coach, Wilbert Robinson who was now managing for the Dodgers.
After Brooklyn he spent a year with the Reds and then finished his
playing career with the Boston Braves. He spent the end of his time
in baseball as a manager, coach, scout and even an umpire. He was
inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1971.
