Bobo Newsom, the famed host of WMAR-TV’s “Knothole Gang” is presented on this 1954 Esskay card. The hefty twirler is all smiles on this (VG) conditioned specimen hallmarked by orange bordering. This “with light pole” variation card displays a more precise scissor cut and a surface crease but presents very well. Free of hot dog toning associated with the issue, the reverse is quite clean. Like many other players from the inaugural Orioles team, Newsom disappeared from baseball after the season. However, these elusive relics serve as a poignant memorial for those players who helped shape the proud Orioles franchise.
