sportscaster goodness - sandy koufax

i picked up another sportscaster card recently - this one features sandy koufax as the subject
here's the back
norm sherry gets a mention thanks to his sage advice, but there is another story centering around koufax's early career that wasn't included on the card, even though we seem to hear a lot more about it.  that's probably due to the fact that the central figure in that story is more vocal about it than sherry seems to be regarding his koufax influencing tale.  i am referring, of course, to the fact that tommy lasorda was the player demoted to make room for koufax on the dodgers' 1955 roster.

i am down to needing just one sportscaster card to complete my dodger team set - i've got my eye on you, roy campanella!
