  1. I remember this card. I loved when Cecil came back from Japan and hit 51, it was a feel good story. It would have been interesting if he had broken the 61 mark. I don’t think anyone would questioned it to this day.

    • Charley- Anytime a card can pinpoint an event that you recall, it just adds to the memory. For that reason, this is my favorite card of Big Daddy. Regardless of the number of home runs, this is the moment I think of first when I recall his career.
