Edwin Albert Brinkam looks like he could be your uncle or a kitchen appliance salesman from Topeka. He played for 15 seasons, was an All-Star in 1973 and won a Gold Glove in 1972 (only 7 errors at SS while playing in 156 games). He actually finished 9th in MVP voting in 1972 despite batting .203 and slugging just .279 (OPS+ of 59). His glove must have been terrific.
His poor stats at the plate can only be attributed to his batting stance, which oddly enough looks like my mother's.They probably still "make 'em like they used to", they just don't draft them.
