Happy Reds birthday, Bud Podbielan!

Podbielan

March 6, 1924

The practice of reusing photographs is nothing new for Topps; Bud Podbielan didn’t get an updated portrait from 1954-1956. Podbielan holds the Reds record for most walks issued in a single game, as he gave free passes to 13 Brooklyn batters in 10 innings on May 18, 1953. I thought that record would have surely been broken in recent years, until I remembered most pitchers don’t stay in the game past the fifth or sixth inning anymore. Wimps.
