  1. Very cool that he was the FIRST DH in mlb (according to wikipedia) – I am sure he has a cult following of sorts because of it, both positive and negative.

    I JUST realized that you and I have been making the same mistake with his name – I always added an extra “o”, too! Bloomberg just sounds more….mayoral……I guess?

    Another great card from a great set!

  2. Blomberg is in the National Jewish Sports Hall of Fame.
