1963 Topps Eli Grba - Error Card Corrected

Eli Grba was the "Original Angel". He was the first player drafted by the Los Angeles Angels in the 1960 Expansion Draft.  Unfortunately his problems with alcohol would cost him his career. He was back in the minors from 1963 until the end of his playing days in 1967. The original version of this card contained the photo of a very recognizable Ryne Duren and his trademark glasses.

If you are a regular follower of this blog you might remember the photo. I had previously used it when creating this 1961 card of Ryne Duren who was traded to the Angels at the beginning of 1961 but appeared as a Yankee in the 1961 set.
