Matt Batts needs a trim

While doing some last minute Christmas shopping I stopped by one of my local card shops.  I had recently received some birthday money.  I didn't want to buy anything new or shiny, but I didn't know what. This one caught my eye.  Apparently Mr. Batts decided to grow a beard.  Because of this extra artwork I picked it up for a measly two dollars.  Bingo!

1954 Topps
Matt Batts (card # 88)

From the back we learn that "Matt was a terrific athlete as a Texas high school teenager."  Apparently he was also smooth with the ladies.
