Some Love for Walter Alston

Nice imagery from "The Faces in My Basement," this week's Sports Illustrated column by Steve Rushin:

At the moment I cannot look away from the '72 Topps card of Walter Alston. On it, the Dodgers' manager—wearing an expression of pained impatience—is gazing heavenward and holding up his right index finger, as if God is his waiter and Walter would like Him to bring the check.
