Collection: Carl Erskine GOTG

Here is my 2001 Fleer "Greats of the Game" autographed card of Dodger legend Carl Erskine.

Here is something I didn't know about Erskine until I checked out his website recently:
Earned his nickname “Oisk” from Brooklyn fans who called him “Cal Oyskin” in their “Brooklynese” accents; last name eventually shortened to “Oisk” when yelled from the stands of Ebbets Field, the home of the Brooklyn Dodgers.
