1975 Topps, Enos Cabell
#247 Enos Cabell
To be honest, I know very little about Enos Cabell. I had a card of him that I got last year in a box and I eventually found another card of him from later in his career as well. He was one of the alumni that signed at Astros Fanfest. Prior to heading down to Houston, I went by the local card shop to try to find some Dierker cards (which I had none of) and I stumbled across this card. Actually, I stumbled across two of these and was able to get them both signed. The other one, I sent to The Great Orioles Autograph Project to help him out and to thank him for a card he had sent me.
According to Wikipedia, Enos is the cousin of Ken Landreaux and he was one of the players suspended after the Pittsburgh drug trials. He never missed a game, but had to give money and time to community service.
I'll have two more '75 Topps coming up tomorrow. Unfortunately, these '75s are going by way too quickly.
