Hank Foiles, Preacher Roe and Bob Oldis

The last three I have in toploaders are #252 Hank Foiles, #254 Preacher Roe and #262 Bob Oldis.  Foiles's and Roe's cards are actually consecutive because there was no card #253 in this set.  Foiles sent the card back to me in a cardboard sheath he made with a note that read "This is my rookie card, not a reprint. It has some value".  The sheath came in handy, as my SASE took a beating in the mail. On the back of Roe's card, it mentions that he went 23-3 in 1951, which is not bad at all for a guy who turned 35 that year.
