A short bio from the Helmar-R319 card back: The word that comes to mind when thinking of “Campy” is “solid”. Behind the plate he is like an unmovable boulder; pity the poor base runner that needs to get past. As a batsman is superb; his strong arms and wrists can whistle a seed over far away fences regularly. Something about this man anchors a team, bringing out the best through the hot months. In his first year as a regular, 1949, Brooklyn navigated all the way into the World Series. Campy was born in Philadelphia, the Freedom City, on November 19, 1921. He’s grown to 5 feet 9 inches and weighs 190 pounds. He hits and throws right handed all the time.
