One response to “Lou Burdette (1958 – Topps #10)

  1. Lou Burdette was one of the “other” top pitchers that you have cards of! I just know the ame, as I never saw or remember seeing him pitch as I was just married and much of my time was spent working or with my infant son, Dean. Burdette’s name though, stands out in my memories as one of the best pitchers and I think he was with the Braves, but that is just a guess. He is as famous as ANY MLB pitcher, ever!
