He was 5’7” and possessed neither speed nor power. Yet Nellie Fox went to 15 All-Star Games, won 3 Gold Gloves and an MVP award, and was inducted into the Hall of Fame. He is 28th all-time in hit-by-pitches, has the 11th-longest consecutive games played streak (first for a second baseman), and was the 3rd most difficult hitter to strikeout in baseball history.
How did he do it? How did this undersized slap-hitter turn himself into a 1950’s baseball icon and an all-time legend? Sheer, raw grit. Nellie Fox might just be the grittiest player who ever played the game.
This is The Nellie Fox Series: 63 Limited Edition, individually-numbered wallets, each made from a vintage Nellie Fox Signature Series glove. It’s our celebration of the man, and of the game played the way it was meant to be.
