Knucksie Nameplate

Today's mail included a Knucksie Nameplate:

2011 Topps Leather Nameplate MGL-PN

Known primarily for the knuckleball that would help prolong his career and contribute to his 318 career victories, Niekro actually had a really good glove. Whether this is the reason Topps included him in this insert set, I know not-but the man did win 5 gold gloves over the course of his career and ranks fourth in putouts by a pitcher.
