1951 Bowman #147 Ken Heintzelman

My Dad has been buying 1951 Bowman Phillies cards for "my" collection recently. I now have 14 of the 25 cards from the team set.

Ken Heintzelman pitched for the Phils from 1947 to 1952, wearing #27. The back of this card points out that Ken was voted the Phillies' most valuable player in 1949, going 17-10 with a 3.02 ERA. Ken started Game 3 of the 1950 World Series against the Yankees, pitching into the 8th inning and allowing only 1 earned run.
