I usually reserve the Card of the Week for some ballplayer who has just done something extraordinary. This week, though, I thought we might do something just a little bit different.
This is a 1955 Sandy Koufax rookie card by the Topps company. It is, without a doubt, one of the most desirable baseball cards in existence.
Also, check out one of my favorite websites, pitchingclips.com, for more footage. In particular, look at the side-by-side comparison of his fastball and curve. You want to know why Koufax was one of the best? That's why, right there.
