  1. Seven times HR Champ and in HOF as a Pirate. Spent 2 years, at the end of his career, in Chicago. Why is he in a Cub uniform? Do you have cards of Mays as a Met, Aaron as a Brewer or Ruth as a Brave?

    • I often make cards of a player shown with a team that he is not best known for. Ruth has appeared as both a Brave and a Dodger (coach). Come to think of it, I’ve made Ruth with Providence and even Bethlehem Steel. Often I have players appear with minor league teams that they played for. Joe Tinker appearing with the Portland Webfoots is an example. In the case of the “Black Sox” I once made cards of several of the players with odd teams that they played for after they were thrown out of the bigs (Soren Ice Creams, for example). I think that it is a fun thing to do and keeps things interesting.Thank you for commenting!
