  1. Jim looked REALLY young in that 1959 picture. Not quite a HOFer, but definitely worth remembering.

  2. I remember the first Katt card I saw was a Fleer with an ESPN microphone in his face. Being young and impressionable I thought he must have been one of the great of the game.
    These Super Veterans were a great subset. The Pete Rose crew cut the mop top are classic.

  3. Katt does a lot of radio interviews here in St.Louis. He is really good to listen to. He said his toughest batter/opponent was Al Kaline.
