1956 Topps #7 Ron Negray

My Dad and I began collecting the 1956 Topps set in the summer of 1987. It's an amazing set, and I'm going to highlight each of the Phillies' cards from the set.

The Ron Negray card was purchased in December 1994 from Tommy's Collectibles in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. I paid $5 for the card. Ron played in parts of the 1955 and 1956 seasons for the Phils, primarily as a relief pitcher. In April 1957, he was traded with Elmer Valo to the Brooklyn Dodgers for Chico Fernandez. Ron wore #38 with the Phils. I'm assuming the stadium facade in the background is from Connie Mack Stadium?
