Re: Sammy Mandell - an ATG ??
[quote=sweet_scientist;13585823]Sammy Mandell is definitely one of the most underrated greats, which is weird because some of his best performances are on film for all to see (McLarnin, Canzoneri).
In fact that might have kinda hurt him. As I mentioned, he wasn't all that flashy. If Barney Ross with that beautiful textbook form of his was underapreciated for his lack of 'pop', imagine Mandell. As baffling as his style was, the best a casual fan can tell about Mandell is that he was fast.
