George Metkovich Purchase

I won #58 George "Catfish" Metkovich a few days ago, and I'm just getting around to posting it now.
He picked up his nickname in Spring Training as a rookie, when he went fishing, stepped on a catfish and cut his foot, causing him to miss several games.  He was a reserve outfielder on the 1946 Boston Red Sox, the last Red Sox team to win 100 games.  For a guy who had over 40 years to sign the card, Metkovich is very hard to find; I've only seen a couple of these since I started. 

I'm now up to 152/274 (55.47 %) of the way there.
