Karl Drews

I picked up one of the toughest cards in the set in an auction a few days back: #59 Karl Drews.  He's tough because he was hit and killed by a drunk driver in 1963, 10 years after the set came out.  For some reason, all the Phillies in the set are hard to find; I have yet to see a Howie Fox, and I've only seen one each of Johnny Wyrostek, Willie Jones, Drews, Ken Heintzelman and Granville Hamner.
