A Giant Topps Card of Tommy Davis

Is this Urkel?

No! It's two time batting title champion Tommy Davis. I picked up this card a few weeks ago because it caught my attention. It's different than other Topps Cards. This particular card is from 1964. This series is titled "Topps Giant". It's a 60 card set. Each card measures 3-1/8 X 5-1/4. It's post card style card. In the back of the card, they have an additional photo of Davis with a quick write up of his career.

Check out the blue jacket. It's satin, right? I say the Dodgers get these jackets back!
