Wills had become a master at his craft. From the description on the reverse:
He experimented with difference types of leads off first base, kept "a book" on opposing pitchers' pick-off moves and the strength of catchers' arms, and learned how to slide in different ways, in order to avoid tags and preserve his slight frame.Before Maury Baseball had lost the importance of the stolen base. After Maury pitchers and catchers found their jobs that much harder.
