Fun Cards Submission: 1961 Nu-Card Baseball Scoops Billy Hamilton

Billy Hamilton Reds rookie record for stolen bases

Pete Rose‘s appearance in the tri-state area was not the only noteworthy thing that happened Tuesday night. Billy Hamilton ran his way into the Reds record books, breaking the team’s record for stolen bases by a rookie with his 55th swipe of the season. TWJ contributor Patrick chose to use the 1961 Nu-Card Baseball Scoops design for this card; this is the same design Patrick used to commemorate Hamilton’s first major league steal last September.
